Frisky Q&A: Actress & Comedian Erica Watson, Co-Star Of “Precious”

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of working alongside a lady named Erica Watson at a dreary desk job. She’s one-of-a-kind: nice as can be, whip smart, hilarious, and just an all-around bundle of good vibes. It was a total bummer Erica and I lost touch after we both moved on to other jobs.

Then I randomly saw Erica performing at a stand-up comedy club one night last spring and when we reconnected, I learned her career has blown up. The Fabulous Miss Erica Watson has a small, but significant, role in “Precious,” which you might have heard has OSCAR written all over it.

But not only is Erica a star on the big-screen: she’s also been performing a one-woman stand up comedy show about body image called—get this—”Fat Bitch.” After wrapping up performances in New York City this fall, Erica will be performing in a Chicago run of “Fat Bitch” at the Chicago Center for the Performing Arts from November 19th-28th, 2009. (She’ll be back in NYC in February 2010—check Erica’s web site for more details.)

Read on for my chat with Erica Watson about how she had to scream at a nine-year-old girl in “Precious,” the ridiculous number of lame-o exes who’ve bought her a gym membership or a treadmill as a “gift,” and why you should never tell a plus-sized woman “You have such a pretty face!”
