Christian and Shonali are back with two celebrations under their bigger belt lines - Halloween AND Thanksgiving! Our special guests are NYC comedian, actor, host Rashad Bashir and for the first time ever, Christian's twin sister Julie Felix, an expert leader in diversity, equity and inclusion join us on the show.
Don't tell us you can't figure out what Shonali and Christian's 2021 Halloween costumes are. They discuss pandemic weight gain in the chest area AND the stress of Thanksgiving leftovers.
Julie Felix, Christian's twin sister joins us for the first time on WDEK! We delve into Christian and Julie's childhood which started out in the womb together. Womb Wars Julie Christian illustration by Jasper Patch.
The two grew up in Deerfield, Illinois in which Julie says they were "99.9% of the 1% of diversity in Deerfield." Shonali and Julie unite in their throat scratchers status which Christian hates. Julie shares her pet peeves about her brother. Can you guess what they are?
Our next guest is comedian, actor, host Rashad Bashir! We discuss Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Bashirs. Don't get Rashad started on cooking. He is also known as Chef Bashir in his home and we want some of his honey glazed brussel sprouts NOW. Rashad can dance too, just ask his fiancée! We talk about the beginnings of Rashad's comedy career, Dave Chappelle's recent controversial comedy special, and the show We're Here.
Rashad teaches us how to be better business people. His Venmo, IG and PayPal QR codes are shared here. Don't try to steal his Listerine flavored masks idea from him! Follow Rashad on IG at @rbashir_comedy and/or see him regularly at Harlem Nights Bar - every Monday night at 6PM or on Saturday at 7PM EST.
We are taking December off to be with our families! Happy Holidays and we will be back in 2022!
