Ankh Fyre has created another platform for all of us to gain a laugh at. On his YouTube channel, Ankh Fyre TV, Ankh Fyre has self-created, written, and produced a new web series entitled 'A Cup of Joe', which is a documentary comedy-skit show analyzing the 'based-on-a-true-story' life of Ankh moving back to Philadelphia after being in Europe pursuing his music career, living with his Uncle Keif and his cousin, Dwight. Let's break down the characters on the show for you real quick.
Uncle Keif is the father of Dwight and the uncle of Ankh Fyre. Ankh has stated in the past that he doesn't receive much support from his family when it comes to his music, however, Uncle Keif, is considered to be one of his biggest supporters. While letting Ankh stay in his home to provide support, Uncle Keif can sometimes get a bit out of control with the rules that he applies towards his son and nephew. However, Uncle Keif has a good heart.
Dwight is the son of Uncle Keif and the cousin of Ankh Fyre. Dwight is living with his father due to him being on house arrest. Although, Dwight and Ankh's relationship is a bit bumpy, Dwight seems to be the reason to why Uncle Keif blames him for all of the commotion that's going on, including giving his baby mother a key to the house.
"Joseph", formerly known as Ankh Fyre
Also referred by his birth name, Joseph, which Ankh refuses his Uncle and Cousin to use, Ankh tries to maintain a way to focus on himself while being in the house with his Uncle Keif and his cousin, Dwight. However, Ankh learns about the life of his cousin in which Uncle Keif educates him about.
As you can see, all of the characters are played by Ankh Fyre himself. This is definitely a show that you guys want to check out. Speaking of which, congratulations to Ankh Fyre on the creative career that he's had thus far. From being nominated with two Honorarium Awards and starting his duo band, Planet M.D., Ankh is building his platform of creative talents to another level.

Remember our 2017 Honorarium Award-nominee, Rahim Brazil? Well, he's back at it again with a new project, but this time he is directing, creating, and producing the project. With his own production company, Big Dreams Productions, took matters into his own hands and went from being in front of the camera but creating a production of his own with his newest LGBT web series entitled 'Twisted' that debuted its first episode on November 15th.
The show stars Martel Star, Siren, Toni Bryce, Chris June, and Caleb Perry. We followed the journey of the Twisted Cast this past summer as they were filming its first season and we must say, we love the plot story of the first episode. The show is a scripted-drama series following the lives of individuals who struggle with different life situations. As told by the production, their stories uniquely connects to one another within a health program started by Vanessa (the character played by Toni Bryce), in which she plays a transgender woman who's past escorting days caught up with her.
