Joyelle Johnson brings joy to the stage.  As an adult, she prides herself on being the nerd she was ashamed of growing up.  Subsequently, her writing includes an extensive vocabulary (that had her shunned by lesser mortals as a child) combined with a worldly perspective (due to her inability to sit still).

Onstage, Joyelle talks about her life inspired by the storytelling greats.  After growing up in the suburbs of NJ and being ridiculed for enrollment in both Band and Asthma Camp, she attended Boston College.  Upon graduation she moved to LA and commenced a comedy pursuit which has taken her around the world.

Presently residing in Brooklyn, Joyelle is proud to have safely relocated from the housing projects of Bensonhurst where she heard gunshots all times of day to the renovated but not yet gentrified bricks of Crown Heights. Thusly, she has performed all over NY and the surrounding areas.
