ISSA RAE DOESN’T WANT TO BOMB LIKE WILL SMITHJuly 2, 2018
Issa has taken the comedy world by storm with her hit show Insecure. However, there’s one thing she hasn’t done yet that worries her.
“It’s like stand-up comedy: In order to eventually succeed, you have to bomb. That’s what every comedian says—that’s when the fear goes away. And I feel like I’m still fearful because I haven’t publicly bombed yet, in terms of my career. Yeah, Insecure is successful now, but where’s my bomb coming? Where are my Will Smith bombs coming? Where, where is that happening?”
The interviewer had the same reaction as the Dish Nation hosts. Like Porsha said, “If Will Smith is failure, I need to be failing.” Issa went on to elaborate.
“He went through a period when he was depressed, when three or four of his movies in a row weren’t number one at the box office. So for him that was terrible. And now he’s talking about, ‘You gotta fail, you gotta fail.’And I don’t want to make Instagram speeches about failing. I don’t.”
Oh snap! It looks like Issa Rae is not a member part of Will’s 17 million Instagram fanbase.
