Although 50 Central star Jasmin Brown has 582K followers on Instagram, she's still humble enough to know that knowing and practicing your craft is the No. 1 rule to making it. She also notes women like Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish, Shonda Rhimes and Halle Berry as being examples that have carved a path for her to forge ahead.
During tonight’s episode (Tuesday, October 11, 2017) of 50 Central, the comedienne will debut a character she created about five years ago known as Toya Turnup. Via an IG post, the actress wrote: "Not only does my character @toya_turnup headline comedy shows and sell merchandise. She also has her very OWN segment on @50centralbet starting THIS Wednesday night [at] 10:30/9:30c on @bet I created this character well over 5 years ago and never imagined she'd be selling out shows and on Tv... do yourself a favor and WORK AS HARD AS YOU DREAM! DON'T GIVE UP! IT WONT BE EASY BUT GRIND IN THE MEANTIME.”
In an interview with MOD Magazine the funny woman reiterated this rule when asked what advice she’d give to aspiring actors/comedians. "I would tell them to study the craft…Being humble is key,” she said.
When asked about representations of Black women and if she felt any pressure as a Black woman in the industry, she responded, "Issa Rae, Tiffany Haddish, Shonda Rhimes, Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, Queen Latifah, Halle Berry, Tichina Arnold and many more. So, there’s no pressure, but rather a path that I feel was paved for me to create my own lane.”
We’re looking forward to seeing the actress' rise. We have no doubt that she’ll rise above the pressure into her greatness. You have to watch this young lady! You can start by checking out 50 Central each Wednesday at 10:30P/9:30C. Click the link above to see Jasmin in action.
