With an uncanny knack for taking serious topics (racism, rape culture, sexism, police brutality, etc.) and with humor, making them relatable and interesting, she combines intellectual wit, silliness, and a pop culture obsession to create her unique style of smart funny content for the stage and screens.
Along with performing stand up comedy across the globe, and touring colleges doing comedic lectures, this former MTV VJ with a master’s in African American studies from Columbia University plays Tiffany on, HBO’s Insecure, is co-host of syndicated daytime talk show, The Real, the host of NBC’s, Bring the Funny, and shines in her debut stand up special, I Be Knowin on HBO. She speaks truth to change via her wildly popular Instagram, weekly podcast, “Small Doses”, and its accompanying book/audiobook Small Doses: Potent Truths for Everyday Use is a best seller. She is the creator/host of the hella successful touring variety game show, “Smart Funny & Black” and launched Smart Funny & Black Entertainment, creating quality multi-cultural comedy content across all media platforms.
