Robin Thede Waited to Say Yes and Then Made History

Comedian and executive producer Robin Thede created HBO’s A Black Lady Sketch Show to surround herself with funny women. She explains to Ashley that making room in the entertainment industry is serious business. After years ascending from the writers’ room to on-camera work, Robin says she realized that her work isn’t about making everyone happy, but about “elevating the art in some way that’s valuable.” Robin tells Ashley about her humble beginnings in Davenport, Iowa where she dreamed of making it on SNL. She also talks about a time when she “wasn't ready in my belief in myself.” She says that being patient with ourselves is the key to success.
