Appearing Thursday, April 18, 8 p.m. at the Colony Theater is Anjela Johnson. Anjela Johnson became an internet sensation with her viral video “Nail Salon” which led to many stand up and performance opportunities. That same year she joined the cast of MADtv as a series regular, which spawned another internet sensation “Bon Qui Qui.” This original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, has been enjoyed, viewed and replicated by over fifty-five million people worldwide. In June 2009 Anjelah recorded a one-hour special for Comedy Central and Warner Brothers Records. A second special is set to be released from her hometown of San Jose, CA this year. Tickets are $35.00.
And don’t forget to catch the free Outdoor Comedy Stage on Lincoln Road at Euclid Avenue, nightly from Thursday through Saturday at 9PM. Always a highlight of the Festival, this year you can catch rising stars Michael Che, Chris Distefano, Sean Donnelly, Sarah Tiana and Brooks Wheelan.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 1 / 10 a.m.
