Where were you born? I was born and raised in Teaneck, New Jersey.
In one sentence what is unique about your work? My comedy shows are always unique because every show has a special element or surprise feature!
Why do you do what you do? I do what I do because that's just how I was raised. My mom worked in New York for 33 years and constantly gave back. She volunteered. She loved her family and did the best she could as a single mom. As I got older I saw that I LOVED giving back too. But my talents were making people laugh. I did it without any effort. It can natural. I loved Carol Burnett and Whoopi Goldberg. I had their comedy of storytelling weaved into humor and love. I worked on my craft, took pride in my product and ran with it. Plus, laughter is healing and I guess I needed IT more than it needed me.
What inspires you? I'm inspired by the stories of audience goers. I'm truly touched when I receive a message about someone finally feeling free to share their story. We all have a story.
Describe your personal style. My personal style of DRESSING? Ummm, ok let's just say I could use a personal dresser. I clean up well, but my sisters were more of the fashion divas living in NY. Me? Well, I tried. Lol. Still trying! I've been told that my style resembles Lucille Ball, Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah! I know, right. I LOVE comedy but it must accompany a message of positivity, growth AND fun. Otherwise, it's a waste of your time.....did you mean this OR the other?
Your ultimate must-have. My ultimate must haves would have to be my Arbonne Protein Shake w almond butter and blackberries! I need clean products to fuel my body. No gluten please....
What superpower would you have and why? I would definitely have the superpowers of transporting myself back to hang out with my mom and dad whenever I felt like it. They're in the east. I'm in the west.
What is next for you? I so excited because what comes next for me is Broadway!! Off Broadway is equally awesome too. Hopefully a 6-12 month commitment? After that touring and speaking my show: Black Girl. Funny World. I definitely know TV is waiting for me!! My mom would be glad that I finally get to use my SAG card again! (she always told me to pay my dues :-).
I already have a superpower and I am so grateful for it! If we should ever meet, I will reveal it.
