When was the last time you saw a comedian who’s part Native American and part African American performing on TV? When was the last time you saw a woman of any color performing on The Tonight Show, period? Please allow me to introduce you to Candice Thompson, who made her late-night debut Wednesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. You may have seen Thompson recently in the Road to Roast Battle II regional episodes on Comedy Central (or at the regular weekly Roast Battles at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood), but as you’ll see here, Thompson’s actual life isn’t so bad. Unless you count the usual and unusual relationship problems. Credit or blame her great upbringing for that!
