It feels like yesterday. I was so nervous that I couldn’t “find the funny” in such a serious moment of this film! @msvfox is such a BEAST, I didn’t want to be lame, even in a spoof. So, like a true performer should, I told myself: DO THE WORK. TELL THE STORY. LET IT BE REAL.
I know I do a lot of comedy, but I’m a TRAINED #actor
So that means, I can (and will), do SO much more!
This #sketch reminded me that there is so much #comedy in #drama & also SO MUCH drama in comedy! But as long as there is always #TRUTH then the #storyTeller is on the right path Don’t miss @50centralbet TONIGHT!!!!!! This #CouplesTherapy sketch is not only a dream come true for me, but it’s effin HEE-Larious
10:30pm tonight on @bet #KiyaRoberts#50CentralBET#RANGE
TUNE IN 10:30pm @bet Tonight’s episode is one I’m VERY proud of! Not only does my boo @watchjazzy bring her ORIGINAL character @toya_turnup to the #BIGTIME , but our first sketch #PrayerPumpFake was created & given to us the DAY before we filmed it, WHILE we were on set filming something else! ♀️Needless to say, we had minimal time to create these characters! But when @iansgr8 said “I want you guys to each play TWO CHARACTERS in one sketch” we were SOLD
And as hyped as I was to have this #nuttyprofessor type of opportunity, I was a little shook because we didn’t KNOW these characters!! We didn’t know what they would LOOK like, SOUND like, what they would wear, who was related to who...NOTHING! I remember sitting in that makeup chair FREEEAAKKINNG OUT!! I was “trying to find HER”. Find her voice, her facial expressions, her mannerisms, her CHARACTER See, I come from a theater background, so I LIVE for #rehearsal and preparation, but @50centralbet has pushed me WAY outside of my comfort zone And I’m SO grateful for the opportunity to stretch my #characterActor & #SketchComedy muscles with a supportive and AMAZINGLY talented cast & director!
This day was SO awesome!!! Listening to the crew struggling to hold their laughter while we were filming, was all the confirmation I needed!
I had found HER. We had ALL found these memorable #characters And I KNEW that we had made something good!! Thanks for trusting us @BeT@50cent@iansgr8@tluvjoshie this one is #gold #KiyaRoberts#PrayerPumpFake#characteractor#comedy#range#50CentralBET#myManAce#ourdaughterismeTOO#AuntieDeb#UncleAce#stuckinaTimeWarp
