Kenny Brooks Comedian is A Hack! (and also most likely dead) : Arnold Benedict’s Internet Freakshow

The internet sensation Kenny Brooks has swept his way into everyone’s hearts because of his quick talking, sharp scathing whit, and jive – a whooooole lot of jive.  A true comedian, with his self deprecating racial humor – putting a crooked smile on a face of your typical downtrodden door to door salesman.  The video that you may or may not have seen:

He’s great isn’t he?  But, unfortunately – it appears this is just a thing they do at Advanage (hire broke black youth to invade suburban households with their delicious miracle cleaner)

Advanage Official Website

Or, for the uninitiated

And, while we don’t blame Kenny for getting his hustle on and really trying to make that guap, we are pretty sure he might have been murdered by his brother:

Kenneth Brooks was pronounced dead the next day at 3:45 p.m. at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, authorities said.

So, it wasn’t the cleaner that killed him.

Sorry Kenny, your fifteen minutes came a few months too late.

Unless you’re alive – which if that’s the case – still a hack.

Good luck on Leno!

It appears you are correct. The victim listed in this link: http://www.insidesocal.com/sb/iecourts/2011/08/man-charged-in-brothers-shooti.html has the same name and the shooting is reported to have occurred on the 7300 block of Shelby in Rancho Cucamonga. If you pause the video where Kenny holds up his ID badge you will see it has the address of 3350 Shelby St., Ontario, CA. Rancho Cucamonga and Ontario are adjacent to each other.

It doesn’t look like Kenny. Kenny’s skin is much darker. Look closer at the R.I.P. video of kenneth brooks on youtube.

This Kenny Brooks did not die, it is another man with the same name (ironic, but true) and regardless of why he was hired, he is still a hilarious young kid using his talent to earn income. In this economy, how could you blame the young man for putting in effort, working hard, and earning his way? The company (if you feel is doing something wrong or “hackish”) should be to blame, not the hard-working people that they hire.

And stop being so judgmental. Thanks!

Thanks for the comment Kelli!

I don’t blame anyone for getting their hustle on, especially in this economy – i mean, take a look around this website and tell me i’m not doing something with my time to keep my mind off how many dollars aren’t in my pocket book (do people even use those anymore?) – I just saw this as an opportunity to spread some information i found (absolutely circumstantial – as i believe was mentioned in the post) after realized that what he was doing wasn’t novel in any way – in fact, if you notice, they use the same jokes!

So i’m not blaming anyone really – except maybe myself for attempting to entertain while i misinform.

I do weekly updates, subscribe and continue the dialogue!

Thanks to Mike and Max as well, your comments are appreciated.

Just a note: I, too was warmly entertained by a young man who had traveled to my city to sell the same cleaner. I must say that I like the product. It is really good. I also like that these young folks at least have a chance to work. More power to ‘em!

The gal in the second video just wants bbc. you serious?

Listen I literally was trained by Kenny brooks working for that company about two years ago. I was and will always be his best trainee. He has a gift at what he does. And when u here others use the same jokes they came from kb(nickname). He has notebooks of Jokes. He works hard at what he does and I’m not talkin about just at the door, he taught me whatever You put in a business that’s what You will get out of it. He’s humble kind and a man of his word. The company isn’t to shabby itself. Everyone keep Kenny in ur prayers he deserves that big blessing that’s coming his way. Kb when u read this urself thanks for everything. Love u my homie

Its the guys who wrote the material and have the business sense to take this angle who win big here. but are they as brilliant as KB appears to be? probably not, thet probably spent forever thinking up all those jokes. but the finished product is as awesome as the cleaning effects of the green goo, and all these kenny clones means one thing only – the spirit of Kenny lives on!

i find it humorous, that the SAME stuff he sells for 36 bucks– is at the Dollar tree near my house..

I don’t know about him. Being BROKE he has on Jordan’s and a expensive watch!! I think that was stereotype he has a job and obviously is good at it. How can he be broke!!?

How is he a hack if he is ACTUALLY funny? Watch the video. He’s hilarious and quick on his feet, goes with the situation, and if his job is to be funny, he does it well.

Not trying to be rude but a lot of these comments are insane. Who cares if he is broke or not? His job is to sell a product. Who cares if u can get it at dollar tree. As someone that has done lots of door to door sales he truly is selling himself, the product doesnt matter. If you can get it cheaper do it! The reality is the neighborhoods they target, the people dont shop at the dollar tree, and probably never will. If they do buy it there! No one was holding a gun to your head, freedom of choice. Anyone that talks bad on him should go knock doors for themselves and see how they feel. The reality is if I knock on your door and persuade you to buy a product you never would have otherwise, I deserve a reward!! You great Kenny and inspirational. Amazing work and keep it up!!!

well – if you continued to read, and watched the other video – you’ll see that the majority of the lines are canned, and are used by many of their salesmen. it’s like if i re-write Salem’s Lot and you thought i was an amazing writer.

now that i think about it, i’m going to re-write Salem’s Lot! go ahead and check out more of the stuff on this site that i’ve ripped off from other, more talented people. We’re ALL hacks!

Why are there so many haters in this world. The man is out there working for a living and doing a great job at it. You don’t know if he wrote the jokes or not but even if he doesn’t he’s got talent. The writers are important but it’s the artist who delivers the message that makes the largest impact. Do you think all singers write their own songs, all actors write their own script, all talk show hosts write their own monologues? Stop hating on a young man trying to make an honest living doing what he’s good at. I wish him the best and hope he becomes famous someday and make people laugh all over the world.

hate is an art form of it’s own.

I really liked the part when they talked about Elephants doin it.

He isn’t a hack…I literally just bought Advanage from him and this is my second time doing so. I bought some 2 years ago from him. He is hilarious and even entertains my kids when he shows up. He’s not a hack, moron…

I am a salesman. All of sales is scripted, conditioned responses. Even customers have scripted, conditioned responses. The next time you go to buy something, and an employee says “can I help you?” and your response is “just looking” realize that you must be a hack too. (assuming you feel like these guys are hacks) What is important is the ability to deliver those canned phrases, at the appropriate times, with the correct tone and inflection to allow your customer to buy something they want/need.

Jessica – prove it. PROVE IT!!!!

there is nothing this article needs more than additional proof that this guy is dead. if he is alive – then everyone can stop searching for ‘kenny brooks comedian dead’ and i’ll stop raking in all the sweet internet traffic.

Michael – my response to salesmen in a store that ask if they can help is generally ‘no thanks, i’ve done all my research online, and i just wanted to hold this product in my hand before purchasing it from amazon – therefore making your job obsolete’. but i don’t think that makes me any less of a hack.

sadly – i understand you’ll never see these response. so i’ll end it on ‘i am a major model of a modern major general’ in the key of G

hack.

He is not dead at all. He was at my house yesterday in Seattle WA. Snapped a pic of him and everything.

thanks Kevin – your insight and proof into this matter were really appreciated. i’d love it if you could email me the photo, with him holding yesterday’s newspaper and you shaking his hand. This will prove beyond all doubt that he’s not dead – and if you happen to have a transcript of his material, that would be appreciated as well. Thanks for being part of the collective downinthewell army. your swift compliance is appreciated.

he’s dead. DEAD.

Kenny isnt dead and has new victim sightings all over the wed…different Kenny.

I have no problem watching people like him run game on you people who whine in his defense. You people have too much funny watching a black man whore his integrity out in the name of laughter…isnt that why Dave Chappelle rarely makes appearance? People like you! Sure this guy is funny but if he is supposedly REPRESENTING a real company this ISH just aint makin no DAG GONE sense. It has hustle and scam written all over it…especially if you been hit up by similar scams(like Bible sellers with similar ID smelling like a homeless person…not a musty person but a HOMELESS person…a unique smell).
Buy the product all you want but this circus act is disgusting and if you think its cute to deceive people into feeling comfortable giving their bank card information to crazy folk whom never have REAL ID, bank cards, or even house keys on their person then “yous a lie”.

Who cares if the lines are written. These kids have heart and sell their personality. Go sit in your cubicle and watch these videos and go home and wish you had a chance to enjoy what you do.

I’m very comfortable in my cubicle

He is alive and well. Stay tuned….

What people don’t understand about door to door is the experience that it builds. That’s why you don’t do it for long. You develop a gift for gab and an ability to think quick and you get a better job.
I challenge the writer of this article to (unannounced)walk door to door and begin reading your work to confused strangers. Then ask for money to fund the work your doing out in the neighborhood. See how many sheckles you come home with. Then we’ll decide who’s a hack.

thanks for your insight, matt. I apologize for not responding sooner – i was pretty busy out making tons of money, and jet setting to notice you were even here. I don’t often mingle with the norms, so the idea of your door to door challenge repulses me to no end. I think if you take a second look at the article, you’ll notice we praise kenny for his gusto, and positive attitude – may he forever rest in peace, below a headstone inscribed with Carlos Mencia’s greatest hits.
