The Critic (Chauncey Bellamy)

The Critic is an actor, singer, and award-winning teacher who received his training at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and has appeared in numerous theatrical productions across the country. He will give you a look at film and TV from an actor's perspective, not from that of the typical critic. Instead of approaching movies and TV shows from the same-old tired point of view, he'll give you insights into how performances and other aspects of production will either excite you or leave you feeling cold. His no-holds-barred reviews and opinions will help you get a feel for what will or won't appeal to you. The Critic is more than up to the task of challenging conventional notions with clarity, specificity, and energy.
