Marie (Michelle Buteau's mom)
At the beginning of this episode we hear a bit about Marie’s upbringing in Jamaica before Michelle joins the call from a film set Atlanta! So it’s another double daughter, double mom episode. You also get two versions of how Michelle’s parent’s met: Marie’s and then Michelle’s, which shows just how great a storyteller Michelle is, because the flair added was laugh out loud. Marie told us that Michelle has a journalism degree and early on, aspired to be like Oprah! She says Michelle loved throwing parties down in their New Jersey basement and that her latest stand-up special was just like that... this time it just happened to be in the basement of New York City’s Sony Hall. Watch “Welcome to Buteaupia” on Netflix and snag her new book “Survival of the Thickest” now!
