So I’m sitting at an airport gate wearing a Montreal Canadiens t-shirt because I ran out of clothes on the road, and it was $7 at Walmart. Well, they’re apparently in the Stanley Cup conference finals this year and the guy sitting next to me is a huge Canadiens fan. He saw my shirt and started yapping to me about the team and last night’s game… And instead of just telling him I know nothing about the team or the sport, I for some reason, try to get thru the conversation without getting found out. Why? Your guess is as good as mine.
“Can you believe that OT goal last nite?” he asked me. And because I didn’t know whether the goal he was talking about was good or bad for “our” team I just shook my head and replied, “Psssshhh.”
If I spoke to someone wearing Eagles swag and they told me it didn’t mean anything to them, I’d probably go on a rant about how they could have bought almost any other t-shirt besides that one and how you shouldn’t represent for something if you don’t believe it… I eventually just put on my headphones and closed my eyes to end the convo. But the point here is that I’m a hypocrite and a poser. I know and accept it.
This week on “Exhale” we talk about Family — how to make time for love relationships, how to care and prepare for aging or ill parents, etc. In this short outtake Rene and I talk with Bryan Gaines, Co-Chair and Project Assistant for The University of Southern California Advocates for African American Elders Project. He had some great information about helping parents age with dignity and why it’s important to know which siblings parents want to handle their finances. Sadly, my folks only have one option.
Tune in to check us out Wednesday night at 8pm on ASPiRE!
Hey guys! Last Comic Standing is back for season 8 and guess who’s gonna be on it…? That’s right, Roseanne Barr and Keenen Ivory Wayans. And also, me. The show premieres May 22 at 9pm on NBC and If you watch the clip below very slowly you can see me for about a millisecond. My very first TV appearance was on this show in 2008. I did pretty well, but I hated the cameras and competing against friends and… I swore I’d never do it again. But then I found out this season is being produced by my faves, Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz, and that it was by invite only and that the comics will compete in several comedy disciplines (stand-up, improv and sketch) and so I decided to give it another go. I don’t know yet which night I’ll be appearing so tune in starting this Thursday and to see how far I get!
