This week, host Jesse David Fox zooms with legendary British comedian Gina Yashere!

Gina was born and raised in the UK to Nigerian parents, an experience that's shaped a lot of her stand up. Gina moved to the U.S. 14 years ago when she hit a ceiling she says all Black British comedians hit in the U.K., and currently writes, produces, and acts in the CBS sitcom Bob hearts Abishola, which she co-created with Chuck Lorre.

Watch Gina on Netflix! Two of her self-produced seasons are on the platform (Skinny Bitch and Laughing To America), and you can catch her on The Stand Ups season two.
