Exclusive Interview: Comedian Michael Blackson & Georgia Reign Talk Trump, Clinton & Living with Funny!
Comedian Michael Blackson has been making waves on the comedy scene for a long time. The African native is known for his off beat ‘Africanized’ impressions and humor. He is a favorite of celebs like Mike Epps. His longtime girlfriend, singer/songwriter Georgia Reign, made her debut alongside him this spring in the Oxygen reality series, ‘Living With Funny.’ I caught up with the couple at the premiere of BET’s new series, ‘Music Moguls.’ The two shows share the same production company and they were their to show their support.
I found out what it was like for the couple to see themselves on reality television. And of course we had a few laughs about today’s hottest topic, the presidential election!
Are you voting for Trump?
“I thought about it until I found out that he wears a wig! I wasn’t feeling that. His tan just bothers me. I don’t want him to speak for me and my people when he has a tan I can’t bare to look at.”
“I was going with Hillary until I found out her vice president was a woman. It’s gonna be all women in the house! We can’t be having women having their period at the same time in the white house! Hillary should have at least got a man!”
Would you want to be Hillary’s Vice-President?
“I’m not a citizen, they wouldn’t let me. Well, neither was Barrack, so go ahead and let me be it!”
“Hell naw! I would move! I would deport myself and I’m a U.S. citizen!”
How did it feel to watch yourselves on reality television?
“When I watched the first episode, I was like, maybe something’s wrong with me? You never really know how you act. I’ve never seen myself in a reality form. But, it was a lot of fun. My kids loved watching themselves on t.v. especially the little ones.”
Living with Funny airs on the Oxygen network. You can catch Michael across the country on tour and Georgia Reign’s video for her new single ‘Lil A** Boy’ will be available soon!
