Anjelah Johnson will be at Andrew Jackson Hall in Nashville, TN
San Jose, California native Anjelah Nicole Johnson 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 Anjelah
to new heights of touring, television, and beyond. Her second YouTube video "Bon
Qui Qui at King Burger," a Mad TV sketch, has also drawn millions of hits.
Anjelah got her start as a Pop Warner cheerleader and continued cheering through high school, college, and finally professionally, for the Oakland Raiders. As an Oakland Raiderette, she was named Rookie of the Year and performed in Super Bowl XXXVII.
You've seen Anjelah in multiple ads and commercials, including campaigns for Sprint, Visa, Snickers, Verizon, All-State, Washington Mutual, K-Swiss, and Dryers Ice Cream. As well, Anjelah has 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.
Anjelah recurred on FOX's long running hit sketch series MADtv, proud to be 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." A wildly successful stand-up comedian, Anjelah has had the privilege of performing for our troops in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and continues to tour the country, playing to sold-out comedy clubs.
In June 2009, Anjelah recorded the one-hour special That's How We Do It for Comedy Central and a Warner Brothers Records DVD that was released in February 2010. She has also recently worked on "Our Family Wedding" alongside Forest Whitaker and "Alvin & the Chipmunks 2 - The Squeakuel," which was released in December 2009.
