Comedian and actress Niecy Nash, a Daytime Emmy-winning producer and star of TV Land’s faith-based comedy Soul Man, continues to expand her professional realm as a producer and inspirational author.
She sat down with Pastor Touré Roberts of One Church International to share her spiritual testimony and how it has shaped her journey to success.
“It was in my darkest days that the gift of comedy was given to me” said Nash as she described her lifelong yearning to become an actress. As a little girl she dreamt of becoming a performer, but she never thought comedy would be her genre.
Then, after the tragic murder of her younger brother in 1993, Nash comforted her mother with jokes that produced soul-wrenching laughter and realized she had a gift of humor. From the devastation of her loss, Nash found her niche as a comedian in the world of entertainment.
