Anjelah Johnson said becoming a comedian was a fluke.

She took an entertainment class at a church because it was free and wrote her first joke.

In 2007, she posted “Nail Salon” on YouTube, and the video went viral.

She will perform another sold-out show at the Gallo Center for the Arts on Saturday. Her last appearance at the venue in 2012 was also a sellout.

Johnson was born and raised in...

Comedian/actress Anjelah Johnson might not want to take any fashion tips from her alter ego, Bon Qui Qui, a pretty, if slightly unsophisticated, ghetto glamorous street thug, but she might want to ask her for some business advice.

The day Johnson's most recent comedy special, The Homecoming Show, was released on Amazon, it was deeply discounted. Instead of the $14.98 suggested price, Amazon was selling it for $7 and change. An almost 50 percent discount on its first day. Ouch.
