Recently Tarik performed in the critically acclaimed Freestyle Love Supreme at the Kennedy Center and at The Booth Theater, in the Broadway run in NYC (2021) - and he hopped in for a weekend as a very special guest of the cast on their final leg of their tour at the Pasadena Playhouse - where Teri roped him into this interview!
In early 2017, Tarik shot a six-minute comedic horror short entitled Page One along with his brothers Don P. Hooper, LeMar McLean and producer Evan Kaufman . This short is based on a full length horror / comedy script that Tarik has been working on for the past 10 years.
