Hip-Hop Wired: Understandable. Art should always imitate life, man. But how much does NYC culture influence your comedy, though?

Damien Lemon: I live here, so it's often the set-up for my material. New York City culture is so rich and diverse that you can go in so many directions; it's boundless.

Hip-Hop Wired: So as you know, The Gentleman's Project, sponsored by Hennessy Black, is all about shining a light on the new and unexpected. Where are some cultural spots you frequent in the city to get inspiration?

Damien Lemon: The library, particularly the research libraries. There's so much free information available, free desk space and wi-fi. That's free office space in NYC! I like the MOMA, The Paley Center, Film Forum, and SOB's.
