In his early 40s, Tabari McCoy is getting over his fears, among them his fear of flying and water. But one thing he's not afraid of is comedy. As McCoy says, it's hard to cry when you're laughing. When McCoy is not touring as a stand-up comic, he's also writing movie reviews on his blog, McCoy on Movies.
