Come take a journey with me inside the Laughter with Barbie of Comedy.
How did you start a career in Comedy?
I was always the one everywhere I went. My best friend K- Swift(RIP) tried to push me into doing stand-up comedy. After her passing another close friend that is a Ryder sister to me name KB invited me to a Comedy Show; I went and met the headliner name Kleon Keith. After meet him and he said I can come for his weekly Sunday night show at Milton’s Grill…the birth of Lady Renee (Barbie of Comedy) and the rest is history.

Words of Inspiration.
Find a way to follow your dreams. You have to grind or you will be left behind. Study your craft and it will last. Don’t let anything get in your way…anything is possible today. When I first started comedy I didn’t know where I wanted to go with it but once I set a goal and made plans things started happening.
