Jackee Harry On Finding A Man: “Someone Who Can Still Do It”

Jackee Harry Interview

Jackée Harry on 227, Ladybugs, and why she wants to be the next Maggie Smith

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: Jackée Harry—better-known to some as just Jackée—is an American entertainment legend. As sparkling, man-obsessed Sandra Clark, she brought pizzazz to 227; as adoptive mom Lisa Landry, she provided Sister, Sister with a necessary sense of wit and levity. She’s also held down regular TV roles on Another World and Everybody Hates Chris, and has appeared in a number of movies, from The Cotton Club to Ladybugs. More recently, she could be seen on both Girl Meets World and In The Cut, where she plays a beauty-salon owner.

The A.V. Club: Logo is airing a 227 marathon this weekend starting on Saturday afternoon. Why do you think that show has endured for so long?

Jackée Harry: Because it was funny! It was about family, which I took for granted then and I didn’t even think about the family in the building or the building of a family. And, without sounding too egotistical, I was pretty funny.

AVC: You can sound as egotistical as you want. That’s fine.

JH: The writing was good. We were funny and the timing was right, you know? It was a time when there were a lot fewer black sitcoms on, so we were one of the several that was there, but we were also a hit show. We were in the top 10 for a long time—which would be a few weeks these days.

AVC: 227 always did show parodies or even real-life TV visits. The characters were on Family Feud and Wheel Of Fortune. Sandra had her own daytime talk show for an episode.

JH: We had a good time. We had 24 shows to do a season, which is a lot. At the end of the year, you’d be like, “Leave me alone! Don’t talk to me, don’t call me!” But it was a lot of fun, but it was a lot of hard work and my feet are bad because of it. Trust me, I wore high heels six years straight. Never wore flats. Never, never, and I insisted on keeping them on all day long. Can you believe that? Ridiculous. It was worth the pain, I guess.

AVC: That was your character, too. You were very dolled up.

JH: I didn’t plan on that, but it just kept evolving—more, more, more. I was like, “Are you sure? Don’t I look stupid?” Then they’re like, “Oh, more, more, more.”

AVC: What do you remember about Amen? That was around the same time.

JH: I was on there with Sherman Hemsley, playing his ex-girlfriend and I loved him. We had such a great time together.

I also did Redd Foxx’s show, and those guys come from a different era of comedy. Flip Wilson. People don’t think of these names now because they don’t remember. I barely do and I worked with them. Milton Berle. When you work with older comedians, you really learn something. Your timing, of course, gets better and sensational. That’s another thing—the timing between me and Marla [Gibbs, of 227] was just perfect. And it got better and better, so that’s something you pick up. But Sherman was a master, and the producer, Ed Weinberger, just let me do my thing.

AVC: You’ve worked with a number of legendary comedians. You were in Ladybugs with Rodney Dangerfield.

JH: I loved Rodney. He was very funny and taught me a lot. He said, “Hey, baby baby baby baby baby, let me go. Do your thing. Do your thing. Every time, every time someone says something, do your thing. Mine is that I get no respect, no respect, baby. You’re young, take my word for it.” He taught me that. If you do it, do it all the time. That way nobody could steal it from me. Because they will. Comedians are notorious for stealing jokes.

AVC: How did you get into the business?

JH: I started in theater when I was 14 in the Henry Street Playhouse on the Lower East Side in New York. You hustle, you beat the sidewalk, the pavement—audition, audition. I just started working around town everywhere. I mean everywhere—the Village, Harlem, you know. Brooklyn Academy Of Music. Just job after job. Then I started teaching and I auditioned for something called Dark Of The Moon, which is a classic. And the casting people came in and they just started casting me. I had to eventually quit teaching and I started doing parts. I got a part in a play called The Past Is Past, and an agent came there, and then from there I got a soap opera. From the soap opera, I got 227. It was just one thing after another. That’s how it’s been and it still is, kind of.

AVC: You’ve worked with so many comedians. Have you ever done stand-up?

JH: I wouldn’t do standup.

AVC: But you’d be good at it.

JH: But if they don’t laugh, I get mad. You’re not supposed to do that.
