GET TO KNOW THE ARTIST
Jaleesa Johnson delivers her unique brand of comedy with the flow of a professional and the focus of a woman fueled by purpose. Jaleesa has already embarked on a cross-country tour, performed at the World Series of Comedy, Burbank Comedy Festival, OC Pride Festival, San Diego Pride Festival, and opened for Comedy Central’s Hannibal Buress and Andy Dick. She has featured in Buzzfeed, Rooftop Comedy, articles for Huffington Post, SD Voice & Viewpoint, Uptown News, and can be seen performing regularly all over Southern California.
Taylor Tomlinson started doing stand up comedy at just sixteen years old, when she realized that her quiet, sarcastic asides were not being adequately appreciated by her peers. Her self-deprecating charm and conversational wit have made her a favorite at comedy clubs, colleges, corporate events, and other suspicious, rented spaces across the country. She was featured in her own regular segment (“Young as Hell”) on Laughs on FOX season 1 and can now be seen hosting the show every week. She was a top ten finalist on season 9 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and can be seen on the upcoming season of Adam Devine’s House Party on Comedy Central.
