ANJELAH JOHNSON

"I love Jesus, I do, but I will punch a ho." That's Anjelah Johnson explaining that she's a Christian and a comedian, but not a Christian comedian. The actress (Ugly Betty, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel) and former Oakland Raiderette broke through in comedy with her viral video "Nail Salon," which led to a stint on Mad TV. One of her characters on the show, the attitudinal fast-food employee turned music star Bon Qui Qui, grabbed attention. It's Bon Qui Qui who will perform when Johnson comes to Durham, rapping such tracks as "I'ma Cut You" and "No Boyfren" with backing from Group 1 Crew, the Christian rap group featuring Johnson's husband, Jose "Manwell" Reyes. But don't be surprised if Johnson dips into her other popular bits, like the one about being a Mexican who doesn't speak Spanish with Puerto Rican in-laws who seldom speak English, or the one about using Liam Neeson's Taken to prep for European travel. —Curt Fields
