We speak to the extraordinary Gina Yashere about her journey from British comedian to American sitcom actress and showrunner.
She talks about her dream to play a best friend in a sitcom, the lack of pressure because she never really wanted to be a showrunner and moving to America.
Gina talks about her powerful comedy, talking about her childhood suicide attempt and breaking down barriers.
She tells us how she doesn't yet feel successful, how she wants to help others like a 'rich white man' helped her and the importance of telling Nigerian stories.
We talk the changing landscape of Hollywood, working for network television and her love of stand up.
A funny, powerful and inspirational interview with one of Britain's finest comics.
