“No, absolutely not. Oh my god. You can have them all. No, thank you.”
“It’s so much harder for two famous people to get together and combine forces of attention and press and constant scrutiny,” he continued.
“It’s hard. It’s a very, very hard thing to do. Like, if you’re in love and it’s beautiful, I totally get it, but for me to think to date someone like that… I’m like, ‘Oh my god, that seems like so much work.'”

Michael Che Career
Che is a comedian, writer and an actor. His comedy uses humor to identify humanity in the most controversial actions. He applies street culture to world issues with a delivery that The New York Times describes as “a reflective, laid-back stage presence with jokes that draw as much from his city upbringing…as from blunt, insightful points that bring the abstract into focus.”
Most recently, Che released his original comedy series That Damn Michael Che on HBO Max. The groundbreaking new series uses sketches and vignettes to illustrate what it feels like to experience various every-day situations including racial profiling, unemployment, falling in love and more, from his perspective – It’s less about being “right” and more about being honest, even at the risk of being controversial.
