Aries Spears Reportedly Feels ‘Blackballed’ — ‘They Say I’m Washed Up’ [Video]
Although Aries Spears is still doing standup comedy gigs, he says it’s frustrating when people say he’s “washed up.” But that’s not all.
In a recent interview with Comedy Hype, legendary comedian Aries Spears tells the interviewer that he’s basically at “halftime” in his career. He’s had an “okay” first-half. However, he’s looking for the remainder of the game to be something magical.
During the interview, Aries recalls how people similarly call Ice-T “washed up.” However, the rapper has maintained a 20-year run on Law & Order: SVU, a prime-time show. Per episode, that money is LONG long.
Aries Spears says when he, himself, was doing South of Sunset, he was getting $25,000 a week. And he mentions that show was a flop in non-prime-time slot. So, he could only imagine the paycheck landing in Ice-T’s lap each week.
