When I was 10 years old my cousins and I shot a bunch of terrible comedy skits, but I really got into film with my best friend Gerald, rest his soul , in high school. We shot some hilarious short films and when I saw the emotions that we could evoke in our peers through these videos, I realized that this was a craft that I wanted to perfect.
5. How’d you get the name toast?
My Government name is Toseef and there’s just no way you can be cool with that name. When I was like 5 my sister just started calling me toast because it sounded kind of like Toseef and it stuck. The name became official when I signed my papers to play ball in college as Toast. That was the name on the roster and everything.

Dead tie between Juice and Dumb and Dumber.
