The pandemic has proven to be difficult for many in the entertainment business — especially comedians who make their living performing live. As the old saying goes, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Well, that’s just what Philly’s Comedian Malcolm Hill did. When many people lost their jobs and the world shut down, Comedian Malcolm Hill created two Live Online shows ‘ The Hill-Arious Show & The Conversation!!!


The Hill-Arious show is co-hosted by Philly natives Nate, Ogbonna Hagins of the Legendary Philly Word Magazine, and producer Ron G. The show airs every Thursday at 7 pm EST. on FB Live @MalcolmHill. The Hill-Arious show not only gave Comedian Malcolm Hill a platform to keep in touch with his audience during the shutdown, but it also gave his fellow comedians nationwide a platform and voice to share how they were making out during the Covid-19 crisis. Whereas ‘The Hill-Arious Show’ gives a voice to comedians. The ‘The Conversation,’ which airs on Instagram Live Tuesdays at 7 pm EST, co-hosted by ParadigmShift’s in-house journalist, Kyle Mciver – gives a voice to the people. The show tackles personal and trending topics that affect everyone. The audience is encouraged to join in and be a part of the discussions in real-time.

Love & Hip Hop don’t have nothing on the Original black Hollywood!!! In the Memoir Cicely Tyson – JUST AS I AM, This Legend spills all the tea!! And the Tea is Piping Hot!!!! A real eye opener!!

Pic from :  Philadelphia Sun

Like many Americans, I was saddened by the passing away of one of black Hollywood’s legends, Cicely Tyson. When I found out how old she was when she took her last breath, I thought I’d read ( well, listen to her book, I love audible!) her Memoir. I wanted to learn how she was able to stay so healthy for so many years. As a nurse who works on a long-term care/rehab unit, I’m surrounded by people 40 to 7O+ years old, who suffer from diverse ailments. Many have dementia; some cannot walk or take care of their basic daily living activities.

To learn that this icon was still doing movies at 90, I wanted to learn her secret. In the  Cicely Tyson memoir – JUST AS AM – Sis, as her friends call her, gives us that and sooooooo much more. OMG, this lady has truly lived. I had no idea of how much drama surrounded her life. I listened to the book on audible, it’s 16 hours long and in her own voice at times – Trust me, you will not be able to stop listening.  

Now I’m not going to spoil the book for you, but did you know the Cicely Tyson was married to the legendary Miles Davis?! Yasss, they were one of the power couples in their time!

Miles Dewey Davis III ) was an American trumpeter, bandleader, and composer. He is among the most influential and acclaimed figures in the history of jazz and 20th-century music. Davis adopted a variety of musical directions in a five-decade career that kept him at the forefront of many major stylistic developments in jazz. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia/ Ruhlmann, William. “Miles Davis Biography”AllMusicArchived from the original on June 21, 2016. Retrieved June 16, 2016.)

In this Memoir, I was shocked at how transparent The queen was about their relationship; he was not very good to our Cicely. Again, I’m not going to give up all of the juicy details about the book, but dig this, Miles Davis died of HIV and was rumored to have had an affair with his male hairdresser…………while he was married to the Legendary Cicely Tyson!!! Listennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn, Love and Hip Hop don’t have nothing on this Memoir!! You have to read or listen to it yourself, get it now!!!!
