SARGE, Black Boychik: The Hilarious True Story of a Fat Mixed-Race Jew Crack Addict Who Somehow Becomes a Comedian. Go Figure.
Black Boychik chronicles the hilarious, awe-inspiring journey of Steven Charles Pickman, who was born to an Orthodox Jewish woman and a black man in 1961, traded for a babka, and later adopted by a white Jewish couple from Long Island. A piano virtuoso at the age of three, Sarge, as he’s now known nationwide, discovered alcohol and drugs as a way of coping with his addictions, but soon found himself homeless and addicted on the streets of Manhattan. Getting clean and sober in 1990 led to his meteoric rise through the ranks in the ultra-competitive stand-up comedy business. Today, Sarge is a husband, father, a son, a mentor to thousands of others on the road to recovery, and is one of the most hilarious, high energy, triple threat entertainers working anywhere in the country.
About the Author:
Sarge is a triple threat--a piano savant, a comedian, and a singer. And now, he is an author as well. He has worked on some of the biggest stages in show business. From Radio City Music Hall to Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game to entertaining our nation’s troops in Iraq. Sarge's ability to improvise and tailor his show to specific audiences is uncanny.
