The popular dating website is home to millions and this funny guy wants to make sure they all check out. When it comes to dating, self-awareness can be a difficult thing to achieve.“I’ve always been fascinated by the bond between mothers and their gay sons, but I’ve never seen a relationship quite like my own depicted onscreen,” said Roma.
But I know that my weight is the first thing you see. But I honestly haven’t tried to model my comedic style after anyone.
But, I am totally influenced by entertainment entrepreneurs like Tyra Banks, Queen Latif Deveareah, Oprah, Tina Fey and Shonda Rhimes. When we talk about the world of comedy and comedic writers there is a noticeable absence of Black women. There is this dumb little misconception that women are not funny.
I am also totally inspired by the new school of media mavens like Luvvie, Ava Du Vernay and Issa Rae. And I think that narrow-minded type of thinking creates a bias against women being hired for the writer’s room.
Erica Watson is an actress, stand-up comedian and film and television director. She has toured the country with her one-woman show Fat B—- where she addresses being a woman, struggles with weight and relationships. Recently she starred in Spike Lee’s Who are you and what do you do? After that you have to decide if you want to conform and “fit in” or do you want to stay in your lane and craft your own path.
I am Erica and I am here to make all of your comedic fantasies come true. You do not shy away when it comes to your weight, why is it important for you to attack it head-on? I mean, I know there are people who try to hide who they are, no matter what size they are. The size of me is there for everyone to see, so I just stand confident and know that my size, however, large is only a small part of who I am. Who would you say you have modeled your style after? I get compared to Whoopi Goldberg, Sandra Bernhard and Margaret Cho a lot.
