What are your top 5 sitcoms of all time and what's your favorite #1 of all time? We all think our top 5 is the greatest and that's what makes this such an interesting discussion. Whose top 5 is better? If you have your own top 5 you'd like to share with us, feel free to call in and share. We'd luv to hear your top 5 and #1.
To call in and hear the live show or even join in on the discussion, dial (347) 838-9540 Monday, July 7th at 9PM EST. Our mission is to bring you solid, relatable, debatable, relevant topics and discussions and that's what we're going to continue to do here on "It's Real Talk Radio".
When you have TV sitcoms that have the topicality (if that WASN'T a word, it is now) of A 70'S TV show, and the debate concerning those and later sitcoms with the old "Amos 'n' Andy" show, then throw in other non-related issues like LGBT and the St. Patrick's Day Parade and maybe a few other news-worthy or opinion-worhy topics, your host, "The Voice", is going to weigh in on SOMETHING. He could even be wrong somewhere on something and he'll welcome anyone to prove him so.
Countless TV fans fells in love with Jackée Harry as the hilariously sassy Sandra Clark on NBC’s 227 and Lisa Landry on The WB’s Sister, Sister. But having fun is just half of where it’s at for the comic icon. “I didn’t aim to be on TV. It happened by me studying and auditioning,” she tells Fresh Perspectives Radio host—and fellow Sister, Sister cast member—Rolonda Watts. “I was a history teacher and I wanted to be a great educator. My goal was to impart information to young kids—particularly young girls—to give them self-esteem and awareness when they go out into the world. I went to Long Island University, Brooklyn Center—right across from Junior’s,” adds Jackée, who works closely with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and United Negro College Fund, while currently appearing in two sitcoms, Byron Allen’s The First Family and Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World. “I had a four-year Martin Luther King scholarship. I was a straight-A student. I was a brainiac! And after school I worked for the National Association of Black Social Workers. Then I did plays at night.”

Robert G. Lee is already known in the entertainment industry as Hollywood’s top warm-up comic. This veteran of 1,000 episodes of such shows as The New Adventures of Old Christine, Just Shoot Me, Becker and The Drew Carey Show is considered to be the reigning king in this very specialized profession. His job is to keep countless audiences entertained between scenes and costume and set changes with rapid-fire ad-libs and humorous interviews. As such, his razor sharp wit is always ready to have fun with, not make fun of any audience he encounters.
No stranger in front of the camera either, Robert has written, produced and starred in six stand up comedy specials and has been seen on the Bananas Comedy series, on Showtime’s The Joke’s On Thee, VH1’s Stand Up Spotlight, Comic Strip Live and a variety of roles on such sitcoms as Wings and Perfect Strangers.
Robert has combined his Christian world view with his Monty Python sensibility and written many Veggie Tales videos such as “Little Joe,” “Gideon” and “Sheerluck Holmes.”
In addition, Robert is a major contributor to Comedy Comes Clean - Volumes I and II and has written scripts for the popular kids video series, “3-2-1 Penguins.”
On top of everything else, for the past decade Robert has been weaving his humor together with serous Biblical insights as the Director of Drama at his home church, Bel Air Presbyterian.
