JUSTLATASHA ANNOUNCES COMEDY WEB SERIES PREMIERE
Comedy vlogger JustLatasha creates, Directs, and Produces the upcoming comedy web series Sit Black & Relax. The series will premiere Monday, March 14th and every 1st Monday of each month on JustLatasha.com. This series expands the often narrow variety of roles for Black Women in film, and allows them to be what we rarely see—normal.
Sit Black & Relax has a five episode premiere for its first season and stars Shakirah DeMesier of the extremely popular play, Plantanos Y Collard Greens, and comedy actress Alison Burke. DeMesier plays the lead of “Maya”, an awkward new New Yorker who tries to casually live while Black amongst her white friends, and often finds herself in ironic situations due to the advisement of her best friend “Lana”, played by Burke. The series obtains heavy influences of FX’s “Louie” and Comedy Central’s “Broad City”, and is told through the passive Black woman’s point of view.
JustLatasha grew in popularity amongst 5K subscribers with her Youtube comedy vlog; “making racism funny… when it ain’t!” She tackles tough topics of pop culture and social issues concerning color and feminism, and educates her listeners using comedy.
