Zainab Johnson, stand-up comedian, actress, and model citizen is quickly being propelled as one of the most unique and engaging performers on stage and screen.

After getting a degree in math and taking a job as a teacher, she quickly learned that she had a different calling. Zainab can most recently be seen in her breakout appearance on HBO’s All Def Comedy and has made appearances on Arsenio, BET’s Comic View, MTV’s Acting Out, and AXSTV’s Gotham Comedy Live! She has performed at the Improv Comedy Club in LA and the Comedy Cellar in NY.
