Last weekend, my sister flew back from college to see comedienne Anjelah Johnson with me. Normally I'm not into watching comedians; I usually fall asleep if B and his friends are watching some Eddie Murphy DVD (ugh, claw my eyes out, please.) But, I wanted to do something with my sister and I think Anjelah Johnson's youtube clips are really funny.
Girlfriend did not disappoint! She's this gorgeous, tiny little thing that at times makes you think she really is this tough thug from South Central and at other times an old Filipino woman. Her best joke was about her castmates in the movie Our Family Wedding, and the woman who killed Selena.
Since Selena is one of my favorite movies, I was almost crying as she said this. Anjelah's timing is impeccable, her delivery is perfect her beatboxing will surprise you, and it's so refreshing to see that a woman doesn't have to be crass to be funny. If you get the chance to see her in your city, go see her. And that's a big recommendation coming from a comedy-show-hater.
