    She took her show "Surface Transit" all over the US. After
    a couple years, it was back in NYC this summer. I went towards
    the end of the run and it was still packed. Absolutely amazing,
    she has a talent for acting wildly contrasting roles almost equal to
    Phil Hendrie's. The show is a series of monologues by different
    characters, from an old homeless woman to an old racist Jewish
    grandmother to a poor single parent to a homophobic, violent
    rapist to a b-boy (leading "how to stop rhyming" support groups...
    in which she breaks out into "Blood") to a airheaded teenager
    (where she talke about going to a Gil Scott-Heron concert (where
    she breaks out into "Your Revolution") and more. One of the
    most talented people I've ever seen perform.

    She's supposed to be in a Spike Lee film, I don't know if it's
    "Bamboozled" or not.
