"Black Women Comedians"

Sometimes clubs want to relegate you to a certain nights or shows because they think your comedy won’t translate to everyone. There’s the shows that don’t want to have more than one woman on the bill,” Hadiyah mentions, but that doesn’t get her down. “But Black girls aren’t just sitting back waiting. We’re coming together and making magic happen: tours, podcasts, web series, TV, movies & books.” - HelloBeautiful.com

"Joke of the Week"

"You can tell it’s a ghetto baby shower ’cause they play games like Pin the Baby on the Daddy."

"Women of Power Summit: 'Hey Ladies' Comedy Show"

The new ladies of comedy talk being in the business and changing perceptions of comediennes
Hadiyah Robinson Appearing every Friday on Centric’s relationship show, According to Him or Her, Hadiyah Robinson was a finalist last year at ABFF’s Comedy Wings Competition.

Her knack for making people laugh at punch lines landed her on The Mo’Nique Show, the upcoming season of BET’s Comic View, and stages across the country. Focused on several projects for TV and film, she’s working on her passion television project Greenwood Avenue, based on the 1921 Tulsa Riots.

“We are three women with completely different comedic voices and just an opportunity to take those out and share them with platforms is a great opportunity for us to expand our brands,” she says of the ‘Hey Ladies’ show. “I think being a female comedian you face the same problems you would face being a female doing anything. We’re always pushing back against what’s expected from women. I’ve had people come to me and say, ‘I don’t like female comedians, but you were funny.’ And I’m like, ‘What?’ I think the toughest thing of being a black female comedian is trying to establish yourself and your voice and not be boxed into what people think or say or what you should be doing or saying. It’s not about who’s going to let me in. It’s about how I push through and make a way for myself.”
