TUNE IN AT 10:30pm TONIGHT #WestCoast ‼️‼️This is legitimately one of the first sketches we saw and I seriously LAUGHED OUT LOUD! Like cried real tears son! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
We barely had a script, barely had time to do turn arounds etc...but somehow, with great direction & the most amazingly gelled cast EVER, we all pulled together, used our #improv gifts and MADE a storyline come to life! @iansgr8 had this crazy idea, and we were like β€œCOOL! Let’s do it!” And the next thing we know, #ReggieandMarkisha was born! Reggie’s #aintgotnoButta line is my absolute favorite! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I could literally watch this 3seconds on repeat for hours!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ This is my second favorite #sketch of the entire season!

I never expected her to be such a GIVING actor!!!! Not only did she come with HILARIOUS & BOLD choices, but she was NICE! She was super warm and thoughtful and FUNNY!!! I had SO much to work with!!!πŸ€—πŸ™πŸΏ
This was, by far, one of my BEST days on set! Lots of time #BlackWomen in #Hollywood get a bad wrap for being mean to one another or catty etc...but this woman inspired me so much with her talent & professionalism (duhπŸ™„), but most of all her grace & her SPIRIT!!! No WONDER she has never stopped working!!

Kiya Roberts (@kiyaroberts)

It feels like yesterday. I was so nervous that I couldn’t β€œfind 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 pathβ€ΌοΈπŸŽ­πŸ™ŒπŸΏβœ¨ Don’t miss @50centralbet TONIGHT!!!!!!

I’m in a REAL LIFE scene with @50cent & THE @msvfox β€ΌοΈπŸ˜³πŸ€—πŸ™ŒπŸΏ Today is kind of surreal...so I’m throwing back to my bday 3 years ago when I quit my FINAL #DayJob & started consistently making moves as a #ContentCreator on social media‼️ #SetItOff was just the beginning! But I was SO hype to parody this #classic film & humbly walk in the footsteps of this astounding actressβ€ΌοΈβœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
Our comedic twist on this film made for a great spoof, & it really gave me the confidence to keep creating MY OWN work! I learned to stop WAITING on the industry to tell me β€œYES” and started DOING more with people who believed in me! And I never looked back‼️ Now Lo & Behold, this SAME guerilla-style bootleg shoot we did in ONE DAY ON A PHONE WITH NO CREW, has brought me to a #FullCircle moment. One where I’m now #Acting WITH this amazingly talented woman! Thank you SO much @bet for this opportunityβ€ΌοΈπŸ™πŸΏ

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 , πŸ‘πŸΏπŸŽ¬but our first sketch #PrayerPumpFake was created & given to us the DAY before we filmed it, WHILE we were on set filming something else! πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈNeedless to say, we had minimal time to create these characters! But when @iansgr8 said β€œI 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...πŸ˜‚NOTHING! I remember sitting in that makeup chair FREEEAAKKINNG OUT!! I was β€œtrying 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 zoneβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜‰ 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!!!πŸ€— 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 πŸ†πŸŽ­βœ¨βœ¨πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ™πŸΏπŸ™πŸΏπŸŽ¬πŸ™ŒπŸΏπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
