Lupita Nyongo

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o prepared for her upcoming comedy special by trying out skits on unsuspecting New Yorkers with "Billy on the street".

The sad part -- even worse than the fact that she's terrible -- is that most of the people she approached didn't know who she was.

Did I mention Lupita is terrible at stand up comedy?

    Oh ok so she is "terrible" at stand up.... Who cares she is AMAZING at acting and she is absolutely gorgeous...Crazy how depressed folks love to find the negative

  • hi-liter

    Surprised to see Lupita in Micro braids.

  • Di Ana

    That last part was hilarious when the white guy told the other white guy that Lupita was in 12 years a slave and the white guy was like I don't give a shit... Lol?

  • Cecakes

    The last guy is the man, @ "I don't give a S#!+" . ROTFL

  • Di Ana

    Also the woman in a rush to get to her piano lessons... Lol

  • ReadingsFundamentalH8TStalkers

    You can't succeed or fail unless you try...

  • JJ

    I laughed when the girl wanted to take a picture and he was like "No you cant" she looked so confused and disappointed like what the eff is the point of this then. And the last guy lol

    She was performing material from other people's comedy specials. The material sucked before she repeated it.

  • Zizzle

    And no one can do the Dice Man except the Dice Man. Ohhh...

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    You're capable of giving a complement?

  • Vonn

    Billy' s response was funny too. It's a piano, it's not f'ing cancer.

  • Tammie Reed

    I've been around her a few times and just recently in Los Angeles for her latest movie Queen of Katwe (the premiere) I will leave it at that!

  • GuestSTAR

    It seems like after these actors win Oscar's, their post Oscar movies are a bust for some reason. It seems to happen more frequently than not. I tend to think the expectation/bar is too high.

  • nucynu25

    New post

  • Pamela

    Billy and the people on the street were funny but Lupita not so much!?

  • Malcom Flex

    She needs to stick to the short hair. Like Halle Berry her face can take short hair and is beautiful due to it. With long hair she's just another African girl but showing her cheekbone she's a star.

  • Tammie Reed

    They never seem to recover!

  • Sucker Free

    How did u like the movie? My rich cousin sent money for all the females in my family to see it...I still haven't ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    She is gorgeous I swear .... ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Ain't she... Beautiful woman ?

  • Tammie Reed

    Wait till it comes out on Netflix lol

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    That was hillarrrrr!!! I love billy eichner

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    That was hillarrrrr!!! I love billy eichner

  • GuestSTAR

    I’m not into buying celebrity sht, just because, but I would be willing to try out her skincare line if she came out with one. Her skin is like butter….smooth & rich looking.

  • TexasMocha

    That girl's pores are nonexistent. The skin is ??

  • TexasMocha

    I think the point is for her to be shocking because of her sweet personality...of course she wasn't funny

  • barbeez

    She's pretty but not that good of an actress. She basically received an Oscar for getting whipped just like Halle got one for getting Fluckled.

  • She_ShowOut

    Flawless

  • CookieMobster

    Thank you Tammie

  • Felicia Kelley

    What's wrong with her??

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Does she have any other movies coming out, or is she still spinning from the 12 years a slave movie? I haven't seen her in anything yet she is all over the place. She better get into a movie or something fast.

  • Kilroy

    Not one of those jokes went over with me. IJS

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    That was terrible.............it's like a hungry person waiting for a cake to bake. you'r rooting for it, but you can't wait for it to be over

  • S T

    That "Queen of Katwe" Disney film, she just did that. Allegedly, she will be producing, and starring in, the Assata Shakur story, but I haven't seen any promos or chat about it other than her mention of it in an article in Vogue. But you know once black women get an Oscar, they're rarely heard from ever again. Not cool.

  • S T

    Ouch. Harsh, but....?Point taken.

  • S T

    Is that what it is?!?! Dang. I was over here all in the mirror like whyyyyyyyyyyy Jeezus! ?

  • S T

    Yup, And might I add, that V Bozeman is another woman who is so fierce, hair is beneath her! ? Not I. Not I. And aw, what the hell, Amber Rose does it well too. Lemme stop hating'! ?

  • S T

    Uh ohhh. Please tell us that she was kind?

  • S T

    Uh ohhhhh Tammie, cough it up....what happened?????? I hate when celebs are yuck in public. You done left us hangin!! ?

  • Tammie Reed

    Just wasn't my cup of tea, thats all. Remember we are on the internet, so I don't put stuff online lol. Then it catch up with you later. LOL.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Maybe if she read like she acted it would be better, I don't think she actually understood the jokes as the delivery was so flat!

  • S T

    Haha!! I hear ya. Aww shucks, I hate when that happens. Disappointing. You're so classy for not dragging her name! I'm messy for asking!! ?

  • Pam

    The 3 Blind Mice and Little ole Lady in a shoe jokes were kinda funny.

  • Camille Bolton

    Lupita is classically trained with a YALE education...smh. The sister with the braids looked like she was thinking, "Lupita....look how far have you fallen."

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yeah because it's been a few years and most actresses have work lined up for them. You know like Jennifer Lawrence, etc. Once you have a big hit the doors swing open, but I haven't heard any other work from her. I'd hate to see her just fall away like that.

  • Guess Who

  • TexasMocha

  • TexasMocha
