I love, love, love Jenifer Lewis. However I wasn't impressed with her last night. I felt like the questions asked by facilitators weren't answered well and for one of the questions she drifted to another subject entirely. To her credit she did justify why she wasn't answering the questions asked but it was still to much. Alan Toney did a good job of bringing her back to subject but she would drift off again and did a lot of promoting her books. One of the trails she drifted off on wasn't appropriate for a coed audience. Also she continued to reference the attendees as kids. Didn't appreciate that because these are young adults. She is a wonderful actress and I appreciated being able to participate on the Zoom! Thank you BCPC.
