LUBBOCK, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) — The following is a press release from the The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences:
Standup comedian, actress, and author, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes will be bringing laughter to The Buddy Holly Hall on June 11, 2022, at 8 p.m. Big things are happening for Johnson-Reyes in 2022. Her memoir WHO DO I THINK I AM? (Worthy Books) will publish on March 15, 2022 to coincide with the kick-off of her 60 city, WHO DO I THINK I AM?, standup comedy tour on March 25in Los Angeles at The Wiltern Theater. A limited number of signed books and VIP meet and greets will be available at each venue for purchase.
You may know Anjelah Johnson-Reyes for her viral sketch “Nail Salon” (over 100 million views worldwide) or her beloved MadTV character Bon Qui Qui (65 million views worldwide), but it’s her clean humor and hilarious storytelling that make her one of the most successful stand-up comedians today.
In her soon to be published book, WHO DO I THINK I AM?, Anjelah shares hilarious stories about her life, from her irrational fear of death (“Please Don’t Die, Okay?”) to growing up caught between two worlds (“I’m Mexican/Hella American”) to her cultural pride (“Chola Wishes & Caviar Dreams”). Tapping into her Mexican roots, she offers a choice of stories that are mild (“Do You & Do You Well”), medium (“I’m Dating You Because I’m Hungry”) and spicy (“I Love Jesus But I Will Punch A ‘Ho”).
Humor and authenticity allow Anjelah to seamlessly navigate racial identity, finding her place in the world, chasing crazy dreams, and the messiness of an ever-evolving faith journey, all the while searching for belonging and meaning. Through her journey, Anjelah gets closer to discovering her true identity and encourages readers and fans to have the audacity to dream big.
Over the past several months, Anjelah has been touring North America closing out her wildly popular TECHNICALLY NOT STALKING tour, and workshopping material for her massive new WHO DO I THINK I AM? tour. The new material is deeply personal and relatable, reflecting on the changes in her life over the past few years.
“A lot has changed since Covid. For the past couple of years, I have evolved, learned, un-learned, started tasks, didn’t finish them, planted, uprooted, did too many TikTok dances, and ate all the bread my friends made. I can’t wait to share some stories from this past season and connect with old fans and new fans as we have all be on quite the adventure since 2020,” says Johnson-Reyes.
