With Valentine’s Day coming up, what better time to welcome back the Love Goddess herself: Grammy-nominated comedienne, actress, author, and Aphrodite of the Accordion Judy Tenuta, the entertainment triple threat who was also the first female stand-up comic to win the Best Female Comedian award at the American Comedy Awards.
While the world has dealt with the pandemic over the past year, Judy has also been battling stage 4 ovarian cancer—a battle, we are pleased to report, that she is winning. As a matter of fact, as part of her recovery, Judy recently released a fun new video, Kicking Cancer’s Ass, that you can enjoy for free on the Judy Tenuta YouTube channel. Intended as a much needed creative outlet during the pandemic (while letting her family, friends, and fans know that she was winning the battle and had no intention of giving up the fight), Kicking Cancer’s Ass has since become a battle cry for those who are battling cancer, COVID, and other serious health issues, as well as feelings of isolation.
We’ll talk to Judy about Kicking Cancer’s Ass, plus we’ll ask her about her influences as a comedienne, who makes her laugh today, and how she develops her comedy routines and videos. We’ll also talk about the resurgence of interest in Desperation Boulevard, a comedy from 1998 about a former child star (played by Judy Tenuta) whose career peaked at age eight—and who will do anything get her name back in the spotlight. Made by the creator of Made the Parents, Desperation Boulevard is a satire of Hollywood that also features Burt Ward, Wil Shriner, Oscar nominee Michael Lerner, and many former child actors, including Ken Osmond, Erin Moran, and Dana Plato. Judy Tenuta will join us in our second hour.
Also this week: We will take a moment to stop and pause, so to speak, as we welcome The Reverend Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook, the nationally known advocate, author, pastor, motivational speaker, and former presidential advisor also known as Dr. Sujay. Once described as Oprah Winfrey and Billy Graham all rolled into one, Dr. Sujay was the first female, and first African-American, U.S. ambassador for International Religious Freedom (a position in which she served for two years under President Barack Obama), plus she advised President Bill Clinton as a White House fellow on the Domestic Policy Council; worked with the secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development on faith-based issues; and was the first female chaplain of the New York Police Department—a position she held for many years, including the days following 9/11. Before she entered the worlds of politics and the ministry, Dr. Sujay worked in television, producing newscasts for stations in Boston, Washington, and Miami. She has since remained active in the world of media, including founding and running her own communications, leadership, and consulting firm; teaching speech and communications at Harvard University; and hosting and producing her own web series, Live with Sujay, which you can enjoy for free on her popular YouTube channel.
Dr. Sujay is also the author of sixteen books, including Rhythms of Rest: 40 Devotions for Women on the Move, a series of devotions that teach the principle of selah, an Old Testament word that means “pause, rest, and reflect.” While each of the devotions in Rhythms of Rest are written by and for African American women, the basic principle behind selah applies to all of us. We’ll talk to Dr. Sujay about that, plus we’ll discuss her other new book, My Fabulous Fifth Chapter: It’s My Turn Now!, which explores the five chapters in each of our lives—and how what we learn from the first four chapters not only set the stage for our fabulous fifth chapter, but can keep us from falling into a rut. Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook will join us in our first hour.
