Book Description

The truths behind the tales are revealed in “Forefathers”. Ben Franklin smoked opium with whores. John Hancock was a rum smuggler. George Washington was a gold-digger. Sam Adams was a drunkard. Patrick Henry was bitter because he didn’t have enough slaves to work his land. Alexander Hamilton had the nation’s first sex scandal and a black man passed as white and ran the nation as president of the United States. The framers of the Constitution were a bunch of alcoholics, drug addicts, womanizers, deadbeat dads, debtors, racists and criminals. So very little has changed in American politics.

From the author of “Black Comedians on Black Comedy”, “Pimp Down: The Rise & Fall of Katt Williams” and the upcoming “Comediennes: Laugh be a Lady” comes a raw, uncompromising account of how America really gained its independence and the flawed men behind it. Darryl Littleton, one of the most polarizing voices in modern literature, unveils another explosive rendering that takes the reader on a journey that’s not only historical, but hysterical.

This story of white on white crime features Crispus Attucks, Sally Hemming, Benedict Arnold, Aaron Burr, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, John Hancock, Samuel Adams and many more. In 1776 America gained its independence and began its cover-up. “Forefathers” strips them to the bone.

More About the Author

Darryl Littleton began his comedy career writing sketches for "The Tom Joyner Morning Show" on CBS Radio. During his tenure there, he became a regular at the world famous, Comedy Store and adopted the stage name, "D'Militant" for his slicing and incisive social and political commentary.

Darryl's crackling wit won him respect and admiration from the industry's top comics, among them D. L. Hughley, who tapped Darryl to be his exclusive writer during his years as host of BET's "Comic View". Darryl's talent was immediately recognized, and he was hired as writer/producer for the show, where he penned material for Cedric the Entertainer, Sommore and Don DC Curry.

Darryl's comedic talents also landed him in front of the camera, where he guest starred on Robert Townsend's WB sitcom, "The Parent Hood" and was a recurring performer on Townsend's variety show "Townsend Television" for Fox. Darryl also appeared on "The Apollo Comedy Hour", "Uptown Comedy Club", HBO's "Def Comedy Jam", Comedy Central's "Make Me Laugh", Telemundo's "Loco Comedy Jam", Byron Allen's "Comic's Unleashed" and ABC's "America's Funniest People"; he was the Grand Prize Winner.

Darryl has also toured the world as a stand-up comedian, working with such luminaries as Chris Rock, Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, Earthquake, Cedric the Entertainer, Dick Gregory, Mike Epps, John Witherspoon, Reynaldo Rey, Paul Mooney, Sherri Shepherd, and Robert Townsend.

In 2006 he added to his accolades when he won the prestigious Bay Area Black Comedy Competition's on its 20th Anniversary. That same year Darryl was added to National Public Radio's list of contributing commentators immediately following the release of his first book, "Black Comedians on Black Comedy" chronicling the history of African-American comedy featuring interviews with 125 of the industry's biggest stars. This prestigious work is a mainstay in libraries throughout the country and allowed Darryl to produce it along with award winning director Robert Townsend as a full length documentary, entitled, "Why We Laugh", which made its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 and Showtime in February 2010.

The comedian / author is the first African- American on the advisory board of the Comedy Hall of Fame and served as script supervisor, touring host and personal writer for mega-star, Katt Williams. Darryl's own critically acclaimed comedy CD, "Am I Lying?!" is in stores and online. His second book, "Pimp Down: The Rise & Fall of Katt Williams" has been optioned for a theatrical film and his third, "Forefathers", the story of the American Revolution told from a black perspective is being adapted for the big screen. Darryl's book entitled, "Comediennes: Laugh Be a Lady" was released in the Fall 2012.
