We aren't going to sugar-coat obesity, so let's get straight to the point: Lavell Crawford is fat. The comedian, who ranked second place (next to winner Jon Reep of Hickory) on season five of NBC's Last Comic Standing, doesn't bother denying his frequent feeding frenzies. His act addresses being a "big guy in a skinny man's world" — though with other giants like Ralphie May and Gabriel Iglesias shaking the comic front, we beg to differ. Crawford shares stories about getting fired from a fast food restaurant when burgers went missing and the ridicule of ordering family-sized meals alone at fried chicken restaurants, where he's asked "For here or to go?" He also picks fun at his fam and other randomness not related to food. But in the end, it's the fat jokes that prevail.
