Favorite Quotes from DeRay Davis

Favorite Quote 1 from DeRay Davis

“When I’m onstage doing standup, no one yells “Cut!” or tells me what to do. I’m DeRay, and I use my own words. With acting, you’re portraying a character with someone else’s words. Still, you definitely want to inject a little of yourself into every role.”

Favorite Quote 3 from DeRay Davis

“I’d like the world to know that I would do what I do for no money. If I could trade my comedy for food, I’d walk into a grocery store and give them 15 minutes for $100 worth of groceries. My passion is beyond the financial. I don’t think people are aware of that about me. I’m not a flashy guy, and I want people to know that whatever they do is just as important as my craft.”
