Anjelah Johnson stops through The Cruz Show to talk about her upcoming performance at The Wiltern, performing for Oprah, bombing in front of the Raiders, and much more.
Bringing all of her signature characters to the morning show, Anjelah channeled her Bon Qui Qui vibes and told the morning show that some of her best prank calls are to her cousin disguised as one of her funny characters. Johnson recently took her standup routine to the Oprah’s Girls Getaway cruise where she shared her experience saying that O’s entire family and staff stayed through her comedic set.
It was just an incredible experience. I had no idea, I thought I was just coming to perform but, like the vibe on that ship was like so powerful. Like whenever Oprah walks in, like she’s very intentional about her thoughts, about her actions, about everything she does, so you felt it on the ship. And she gave her talk and she was so inspiring. Within the first hour on the ship, I was with my assistant and we just kept looking at each other going, ‘What is going on?’ because so many like “God” moments were happening.
While Johnson is definitely a veteran in the comedy game, Anjelah shares some tips with J Cruz about how to have a successful set since Cruz has been challenged to take on doing two nights of stand up at Anjelahl’s shows.
The comic goes on to share how she completely bombed in front of the Raiders team and shares her thoughts on being too real while performing on stage.
