Angie Le Mar: ‘Black Women Don’t Talk Enough’

Posted By on 27th December 2015

The award winning-comedian says people should talk more about their struggles


THERE’S one thing we know about British comedian, presenter and playwright Angie Le Mar, it’s that she loves to talk.

But she doesn’t think other black women talk enough – well not about their struggles anyway.

With a successful career spanning 30 years, three years ago Le Mar was struck by a series of dark events including depression, financial woes and a serious illness.

“I had some difficult time in my life. Life has been up and down,” she told The Voice.

“And that kind of negativity becomes a part of you and builds up until the plug goes.”

Using her stand-up as a channel to open up about her emotional journey, the recently-turned 50-year-old wants to encourage more people – black women in particularly – to talk about their struggles.

That’s why three years ago, she launched Ladies Talk. Similar in format to the ITV programme Loose Women, the show features leading black women discussing a range of topical issues.

“I don’t think we talk enough, but I think it’s important that we do,” said Le Mar, who will be launching her new TV show, The Angie Le Mar Show next year. “We talk about success and achievements, but we don’t know if the person next to us is broke and doesn’t even have enough money to get home, because we don’t really talk.”
