Upstart comedian Quincy Jones is either faking or exaggerating his cancer diagnosis for financial gain, a source tells GotNews.
The source spoke with an anonymous professional comedian who has observed Quincy Jones’ rise. The unnamed comedian is “99% certain [Quincy Jones] is exaggerating/faking his condition for financial and career gain.”
Quincy Jones appeared on talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres’ show twice as “the dying cancer comedian” and on the second show DeGeneres’ “surprised” him with an HBO comedy special.
Last year Jones supposedly only had a year to live — according to his doctors — and cited the date of August 6, 2016 as the day he might die.
It’s August 8, 2016, and he seems fine — and enjoying his career!

Jones looks pretty skinny, but it’s unclear if that’s because of the alleged cancer or his obvious skinny hipster aesthetic. Jones has very large ear gauges as well as what looks like tattoos of cursive writing on his chest.
Is that weird? Not really, since Jones grew up in Seattle, probably surrounded by white hipsters. Is Quincy Jones the fabled black hipster? Looks like it.
An anonymous commenter on Reddit appeared several months ago questioning Quincy Jones’ story, but the best evidence that he’s faking or exaggerating his diagnosis is his beard.
According to the Mayo Clinic, chemotherapy causes hair loss all over the body, not just the scalp.
If Quincy Jones has been undergoing chemotherapy like he claims, why has he been sporting a nice little beard and a head of cropped hair this whole time?
