Why he might be annoying:

    He started using his stage name when he was a hip-hop dancer.
    He sometimes rams his initials together and bills himself as JB Smoove.
    He was once booed off the stage at the Apollo Theater. (The night got off to a bad start when Cab Calloway introduced him as ‘J.B. Slick.’)
    He was a celebrity judge on the Gong Show revival hosted by Dave Attell (2008).
    He is a vegan.
