Anjelah Johnson

Stand-up comedian Anjela Johnson is living out her “Gold Plated Dreams.” It’s the name of a hip-hop album she released as her MadTV character Bon Qui Qui in 2015, which should technically have a hyphen between “gold” and “plated,” but don’t tell Bon Qui Qui that because then she might cut you. In fact, her single “I’m a Cut You” explains why she’ll cut you if you’re rude (“Boy, I really wish you would / Tryna’ watch what happens”). While she dabbles a bit in rap, Johnson, who was once a professional cheerleader in the NFL, is at her best when making people laugh center stage. She’ll be in town this weekend and will then return the following week (November 8-11) for a second round of San Anto. Last year, Johnson filmed her fourth comedy special, Mahalo & Goodnight, in Honolulu. It premiered on the Epix channel and is currently streaming on Hulu. In the special, Johnson explains why being bowlegged is bad when you try to wear heels and shares advice with married couples about why they should never impulse-buy a house.
