Many milestone moments in life take place in churches such as baptisms, weddings and christenings. For comedian Anjelah Johnson one of her most famous jokes to date was written in a church.

And the joke -- which is now one of Johnson’s set staples -- is a parody of getting her nails done at a Vietnamese nail salon by the manicurist “Tammy.” With a spot on accent and a penchant for...
