“Comic Talent JB Has Some Pretty Smoove Moves” from USA Today
On: December 3, 2014

Comedian JB Smoove, 49, has a robust — and funny — career, with appearances on Curb Your Enthusiasm and in the new movie Top Five.

So you may be surprised to learn that he harbors dreams of stardom beyond acting.

“I thought I was going to be the greatest wide receiver in history. (But) in high school, I had too many obstacles and too many distractions – chasing cheerleaders and joking around with my friends. … I had the hands, I had the height, I just didn’t have the motivation.”

Oh, and he can dance, too. “If I ever do go on Dancing with the Stars, you heard it right here: JB Smoove will win because I am an amazing dancer. I’m light on my feet. I’m long, I’m lean, I got rhythm. I don’t play around, man.”
