*for updates on this film, please follow the official Support social media handles: FB, IG, Twitter and IMDb.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand with the trailer as an introduction, I say hello, good day, happy-new-whatever-period-you-are-currently-celebrating. I hope you have been busy since the last time your eyeballs had a rummage through this page? Have you been happy? Earning? Healthy and holding on to all of your edges? May your efforts never pour like a barrel of water through a whicker basket.
The year that was 2016 was a special beast. I am convinced that all babies born in 2016 will grow up to be one of the toughest kids in the playground. Nay, THE toughest kids in life. It might not look like it to you mere weaklings now, but future them will be infallible with muscles from Brussels and immune systems tougher than if Popeye, Hercules, Thor and Xena the Warrior Princess got into bed and sired one indestructible superbaby. What does that have to do with #OBFW? Not a doggone thing! I did get a little busy in 2016 though :)
And if that fails, he has his friends Kemi and Jade who are just dying to help a brother out. Seriously, look at how eager they are to help him find a wife.
A moment of silence please, for Captain Save-A-Ho.
So, what should you expect from this web series? Will Charles' interpretation of E-Money spraying recession proof cash help him seize-the-bae? When will we meet other cast members like Kiki Omeili, Omoye Uzamere and Ijeoma Aniebo? Will one of them be Mrs Charles Owoblow? What's Chris Attoh's name doing in the credits? Will he and Timi Fadipe lure Charles happily back to a life of George Clooney esq (pre 2014) bachelorhood? I could tell you but it will be a whole lot more fun for you to see for yourself: Thursdays, 4PM on @itsredtv's YouTube channel. The first episode is embedded for you below though I highly recommend that you watch it on Youtube so that you can click the subscribe button. That said, if you fancy live-tweeting with someone, find me on twitter, let's chop it up.
This gorgeous brainiac left Comedy Central's The Daily Show last week and I am going to miss her. Thankfully though, I don't have long to wait to see her again as she reportedly WILL be back on Comedy Central to host a show of her own so, yay.
I am glad that she has found the courage to strike out on her own as just a year ago, she took herself out of the running as a potential replacement when Jon Stewart's seat was seeking a replacement - citing, that she was far from experienced/qualified enough to take on a show of its nature.
Fact 1: I'm not hosting. Thank you but I am extremely under-qualified for the job!
There was also some buzz from POC who really were not pleased that she didn't want to stay in the race but then (my-mate-who-reminds-me-of-Fade-Ogunro) Jessica was very clear about what her goals were and being considered simply because she is young, female and black didn't cut it for her. I respect that and am very interested to see what she does next.
When (my mate) Jessica was hired by The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, she was the youngest and first black female correspondent in the Comedy Central flagship’s history and even in her absence, she continues to strike a cord with audiences that want to be 'woke'. Just listen to her here on 2 Dope Queens; a series that I have immediately added to my #PodIn list.
