In this episode of the Yalla! Let’s Talk. Podcast, Black Hijabi comedian Hoodo Hersi (@hoodocomedy) discusses all things stand-up comedy. From a young age, comedy has been an outlet for Hoodo to get through traumatic things. Learning to hear your inner voice and doing what you love is what Hoodo emphasizes. She discusses the beauty of comedy, changing the minds of individuals with laughter, and how her parents view her comedic endeavours. We further discuss parents’ expectations and the “formula” of talking to ethnic parents and setting boundaries to achieve independence. The topic of mental health and therapy is an important conversation on which we discuss our views.
This episode will surely make you laugh! Watch the hilarious BLOOPERS at the end!
