When I was a youth, I used to love the show Martin on Fox. This was back before Martin ran the streets butt naked waving a gun — so far back, in fact, that he was actually funny instead of just jaded and angry.
On his show, Tracy Morgan used to play this character called “Hustle Man”. He was a homeless guy who was always trying to sell bootleg chickens, jewelry, flowers or whatever to whoever was around. I barely remembered Hustle Man until I saw a clip of it on Jimmy Kimmel the other night when he was interviewing Morgan.
Needless to say, I had to hit Youtube to see if I could find the goods. Luckily, HBO (the show’s producer) is pretty lax when it comes to defending their Martin copyrights.
