The Journey Behind The Smile

A tremendously resilient journey took D’LAI from an impoverished, difficult and humble upbringing, to the bright lights and opportunities of Hollywood. This book dives deep inside the life and mind of one of America’s most sought after comedians. Having lost his mother at the age of nine months, and being raised by his grandmother and auntie, he succumbed to a life of mystery, questions, confusion and lack of understanding. Watching day in and day out an enormous level of dysfunction, at eight years old, ‘Davetrick’ knew he was different. He wanted something else for his life and knew that that ‘something else’ was out there.
