A juggernaut of charisma and filth, Ninia Benjamin has a supernatural connection to her audience and a mind like a firework display. We discuss why she won't ever explain her race or size, only her point of view, and how she moved beyond the onstage anger that used to motivate her. We also dig deep into her career rebirth after an 'annus horribilis' brought about by professional struggles and her own impostor syndrome.
