On Friday, November 10, 2012, I had the awesome opportunity to interview one of my all-time favorite comedians and actresses, T’Keyah Crystal Keymah on IRMIX Radio aka Industry Revue in the Mix, along with my co-host Chad Burleson.
In fact, that week alone, we had two interviews with her once on the radio and then in person. Today, the one that I am sharing with you is a candid conversation that we had on the Industry Revue in the Mix about her departure from the hit Disney show, That’s So Raven.
After researching history on the internet about the real reason for her departure from That’s So Raven, it looks like we might have been the first to cover it in November of 2012.
In this interview, we talked about the death of Heavy D. which happened earlier in the week, an In Living Color Reunion, working with Bill Cosby, her one-woman show, Don’t Get Me Started, and about her book Natural Woman, Natural Hair. What was so special about this interview is that she did an impersonation of her LeShawn character from In Living Color which has us all laughing.
Over the years from 2012, to now we have watched her methodically rebuild her career from the one-woman shows to being in TV movies like Sharknado and more. I am so happy for her continued success. Hopefully, we will be able to speak with her again once IRMIX Radio has relaunched in March 2021.
