 Zainab Johnson, a stand-up comedian, actress, and writer, is quickly becoming one of the most unique and engaging performers on stage and screen. Her comedy is shaped by her background growing up in Harlem as one of 13 siblings in a Muslim family. She was recently honored as a New Face of Comedy at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and was one of the breakout new comedians on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

This program contains mature themes and strong language!

Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the States Gallery starting at approximately 5 p.m., up to two tickets per person.
