The best comedians poke fun at the truth. They do it in a way that makes you laugh at reality but, once the laughing stops, their words sit with you, gently nudging you to examine your core beliefs and actions. Erica Watson’s built a career on poking fun at how big girls are viewed by the world. As in real-life relationships, after spending a little time with her, the stereotype falls away and you’re left with truth. Erica Watson is a big personality. Intelligent, intuitive and immensely entertaining. Check out the video to hear her discuss the benefits of being a “fat b—-” with rolling out‘s Mikko Monro. You’ll be laughing from the time you press play. You’ll be intrigued long after the video ends.
