Ever wonder what it’s like to become famous almost instantly? Just a few months after starting comedy, Anjelah Johnson had that experience when her joke about a Vietnamese nail salon went viral with the perfect storm of YouTube, email and MySpace. Listen to her story of what it was like being thrown into a headliner’s position when she didn’t have enough material, rising to the occasion and learning along the way how rough this business can be. Fortunately, Anjelah is still selling out and growing her audience all over the place, just finished a new musical comedy tour with her character Bon Qui Qui and has her 3rd special, “Not Fancy”, coming out on Netflix today (Oct 2, 2015). With only 9 years in comedy and a career others envy, she’s proving she has what it takes long term.
