FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Anjelah Johnson will perform at Northwestern State University Thursday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. in the A.A. Fredericks Auditorium. Tickets are $15 general admission and $5 for NSU and BPCC @ NSU students.

Johnson was a regular on Fox-TV’s long running hit sketch series “MADtv” and was one of the first Latina comedians to be invited to join a sketch comedy series. She was honored with a 2008 ALMA Award nomination for “Outstanding Female Performance in a Comedy Television Series.”

She made a huge splash with one of the most successful, viral comedy videos of all time, “Nail Salon.” This was one of the most-viewed YouTube and Google videos of 2007 and propelled Johnson’s career. Her second Youtube video “Bon Qui Qui at King Burger,” a Mad TV sketch, has also drawn millions of hits.

Johnson was an Oakland Raiderette, where she was named Rookie of the Year for the squad and performed in Super Bowl XXXVII. She has done extensive commercial work and guest starred on “The Shield” and “Love Inc.” and co-starred with Gabrielle Union in the feature film “The Box.” She also co-starred in the Dave Caplan pilot for TBS.

Johnson has performed for U.S. troops in Guantanamo Bay. She continues to tour the country, playing to sold-out comedy clubs all over the country. In 2008, Johnson was part of the “New Faces” category at the 26th Annual Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival.

Last year, Johnson recorded a one-hour special for Comedy Central and a Warner Brothers Records DVD which was released last spring. She recently worked on “Our Family Wedding” where she will be acting alongside Forest Whitaker and “Alvin & the Chipmunks 2 – The Squeakuel” which was released last year.
