Created by Jacqueline McKinley & Antonia F. March “Finding My Obama” is an original web series about one woman’s journey to find her perfect man. Her “perfect man” is someone with the same qualities of President Barack Obama.” (Facebook)
Starring Nefetari Spencer!!
Nefetari Spencer aka “Queen Nef” hails from Chicago. She’s always been one with a vivid imagination so it wasn’t a surprise when Nef decided to quit her day job to pursue comedy. For years she studied comedy and drama all while being mentored by the great Bernie Mac until his untimely passing. Bernie always encouraged Nef to follow her true passion. It is with his words in mind that she decided to leave that job and stop hiding behind a desk. “It was so dark and cold under there, not to mention the back problems it created.” Nef has studied improvisation at Improv Olympic West, The Groundlings and helped form the sketch group “Cleo’s Apartment” that led to the multi-million viewed youtube sensation “Condilicious.” She even went on to test for a coveted spot on Saturday Night Live. SNL’s incomprehensible decision not to cast Nef gave her the time and inspiration to create the all female sketch group “Elite Delta Force 3” whom become known for their “Real Housewives of Civil Rights” sketch: www.elitedeltaforce3.com.
While EDF3 is taking a break from the stage you can find Nef all over the web, in several national commercials and this season in “Don’t Trust the B**ch in Apt 23”, “The Young and the Restless” and “Goodwin Games”. Nef is currently seeking 13 red vines, a pink dual cassette player and an Oscar. Follow her on twitter: @nefetaris.
