J.B. Smoove Pairs Good Food And Great Conversation With Return Of ‘Four Courses’

Funny man J.B. Smoove is making bread off his TV dinners. After bringing the laughs in Chris Rock’s Top Five, the seasoned comic is returning for Season 3 of Four Courses with J.B. Smoove, having several seats with world-famous athletes, like John Starks, to astrophysicists, like Neil DeGrasse Tyson, for good food and even better conversation.

VIBE: Four Courses is back at it again. What are some changes in the format we can expect to see?
J.B. Smoove: Every season, we have a different array of athletes, comedians, actors, musicians, astrophysicists—it doesn’t matter. This season, we turn it up a notch. I’ve definitely expanded my guest list. I tell all my guests, ‘Although you’re being invited to sit at this table, it’s about everyone interacting with each other.’ It really feels like a bunch of friends just having dinner. It’s that simple.

What were some meals you had?
I had a chicken dish [that] involved a brick. Somehow, you put something in a metal pan and then they put a brick on top of it to hold it down. I found that to be so amazing. It was delicious. I never had anything on a menu that involved the word “brick.” When we have a dish [on the show], I always ask ‘Have you ever had this before?’ Some people are very hamburger and hotdog people, pizza people. I want to give people a chance to experience a nice meal and get treated by your boy like this.
