MALCOLM-JAMAL WARNER FROM THE COSBY SHOW

EntertainmentToday.net - Los Angeles, CA, USA - Whatever happened to Malcolm-Jamal Warner? You know the kid who played ultra-likable teenager Theo Huxtable on the long-running Bill Cosby comedy The Cosby Show.

Warner is still likable. But at age 36, he’s a grown man with a lot on his mind, and he has found the perfect format to get everything off his chest. His one-man show Love & Other Social Issues has him on stage letting his inner-most feelings ebb and flow before receptive audiences at the Assistance League Playhouse in Hollywood (through July 8).

What makes his show a mesmerizing evening is not just the heady subjects that he chooses to talk about, but how he puts his deepest thoughts in verse, like Shakespearean soliloquies. Yes, he’s that good.

How did this former child actor grow up so well adjusted? Warner admits he learned much of life and life’s lessons “from Mr. Cosby,” as he always respectfully calls the TV icon. But he’s quick to credit his mother and manager Pamela Warner, who is the producer of his stage show.

“Actually, the show was her idea. She kept at me about doing more with my poetry” Warner reveals. Malcolm has been part of the spoken word poetry scene in Los Angeles since the early 1990s. But during the ’90s he was involved with directing and other projects, including the series Malcolm & Eddie. Then along came the Showtime sci-fi drama Jeremiah that showed he had a gritty side.

In 2004 he was back to the sitcom world in Listen Up with Jason Alexander. But before that, Warner’s mother finally got through to him. “She was right, I had written some good stuff,” he admits. “I love poetry, but I was intimidated by turning it into something so grand. That’s when [director] Denise Dowse helped shape it into a very accessible stage presentation.”
