TV One’s original auto-biogrpahical series UNCENSORED highlights actress and comedian Niecy Nash on Sunday, Nov. 3rd at 9/8c.
The Emmy-nominated actress and comedian is no stranger to rejection, and has learned a few lessons about persevering in the entertainment industry. With a Hollywood career spanning nearly three decades, she has finally arrived. Raised in Compton, California, Nash is not the typical “L.A. girl.” Grounded in love, Nash is truly authentic and is too real for that stereotype. Her name instantly evokes thoughts of the colorful and unapologetic roles she’s created and that audiences have grown to love.
At an early age, the CLAWS star was destined to be an entertainer and had the confidence to back it up. Her journey has been a long-time coming, and Nash admittedly has struggled to find professional success and personal satisfaction. Nash’s past experiences with gun and domestic violence, along with tumultuous relationships with men have inspired her craft and allowed her to find the positive in every situation.
Best known for her leading roles in the popular series, “Claws,” “Reno 911!,” and as an Emmy-nominee for her critically-acclaimed portrayal of Korey Wise’s mother Delores in Ava DuVernay’s “When They See Us,” Niecy Nash is the epitome of Black Girl Magic. She’s an inspiration to future generations of Black women in Hollywood and has reshaped mainstream’s view of comedic actors capabilities.
