When it came time for comedian/actor Anjelah Johnson to tape her comedy special, the San Jose native came to Houston to do it. Her reason? Houston has always treated her like a hometown girl and Johnson wanted an enthusiastic audience for the taping. "Even before my hometown San Jose got behind me, Houston was already on board. I get love from all over Texas, from the rest of the country, really, but Houston treats me like a hometown girl. It always has. I don't know how to explain it, except that maybe Houston is just smarter than the rest of the world," she deadpans.
Comedian Anjelah Johnson is Houston's adopted hometown girl.
Johnson's comedy is character-based, usually female characters with lots of attitude, like the infamous Bon Qui Qui, a ghetto-fabulous cutie with the tendency to stab her philandering boyfriends. Bon Qui Qui has become so popular that Johnson has recorded a music video as the character. It's called (what else?) "I'm A Cut You."More »
