I Weigh with Jameela Jamil #115 June 16, 2022

Comedian, author, and ‘Bob Hearts Abishola’ EP/writer/actor, Gina Yashere, joins Jameela this week to discuss a career marked by perseverance, why she never stopped believing in herself, leaving a career in engineering to become what her mother called “a clown,” the glass ceiling for black comedians in the UK, almost missing a meeting with sitcom legend Chuck Lorre, opening doors for other performers like London Hughes, and more.
