How Tyler Perry Inspires Rising Star Barry Brewer Jr. / VIDEO

*Barry Brewer is a rising star who is grabbing the attention of many for his all-around talent. Brewer hit the scene with his comedic skills in 2001, but the South Side Chicago native had more to show through acting and music.

Monique Loveless, an EURweb correspondent had a virtual conversation with Brewer to discuss his new projects, his comedy special, album, and what he learned from Tyler Perry on the set of the new show “BRUH.”

“I started being the change I wanted to see,” Brewer says while discussing Black Lives Matter. “I have a thing called Blueprint Idea that I think meshes it all.”

He goes on to explain the exciting project, “It has 3 tiers: Education, Financial and Legal.”

Philanthropy to0 Barry?

While becoming a philanthropist, Brewer is one of the main characters on Tyler Perry’s new BET show “BRUH” and his one-hour comedy special just dropped on The CW.

“It was really inspirational,” the actor says about working with Tyler Perry, “ His work ethic is really what stands out to me. “

He goes on to praise Perry, even more, saying: “To be at the level and to have the work ethic that he has really shows me that, if you want to get far, it’s going to take work, it’s going to take locking in and staying after it.”
