“It was about three years ago that Brown, currently in her mid-30s, tried stand-up as a means of combatting depression and anxiety (she has a terrific spoken word bit in her act entitled “Anxiety Hawk”). But it took being fired from her day job last year to make her realize it was a calling. “The easy answer as to why I was terminated is that for the first time in my life, I was using up all of my creative energy for something that I loved,” she says. “Being fired was the luckiest break I have ever had. It forced me to acknowledge that I wanted a career in comedy.””

I do an obnoxious thing that a lot of comics do, when I hear “good set,” I find it hard to take that as a compliment, instead I discount it. Professional comics have told me not to do that; it’s rude, it’s snotty, it’s like telling a beautiful girl she’s beautiful, and she’s like “you don’t even know what beautiful is…” It’s not that I don’t want the compliment; I’m just very bad with them. It’s the same as when I put the trouble into wearing make-up, doing my hair, getting dressed, but if somebody dares to flatter me I feel a need to debunk the illusion.” – Aisha Brown

I was lucky enough to join hilarious comedian, Zabrina Chevannes, on Metro Morning… My favourite morning radio show. In this clip, we talk about Zabrina’s monthly show, “Things Black Girls Say”… I also manage not to scare Matt Galloway with how much I need him in my life. http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/2666050389
