His new film 'Headstrong':
"As you saw originally the movie was intended to be something different. It was going to be a film documenting this stand-up comedy tour I did of seven days on the road and I thought bringing the camera would be cool and I'd show people what my life's like, how people react to see me on the street and of course film some of the comedy. But, I showed up on day one with symptoms of a concussion that I got two-three days before the tour started and at first I thought the concussion symptoms would go away and they always, always, always did before so I wasn't as concerned but let’s just go ahead forward with what we were going to do. The symptoms stayed so long that the documentary takes a major turn and becomes about something else and we have to go into that. I'm getting my brain checked out with the camera and I'm talking to the viewers as I'm learning they are learning with me so I take them on the roller coaster with me to check out what is going on in my head. So I have to add a little backstory as to how I got to be here and how I got to this point in my life which started with 2016 so the documentary covers a lot of what I've been going through the last couple years since the fans have seen me. As you know this is going to be a bit of a surprise and I made the movie just the way it happened with me and it starts out one way and becomes something completely different."
