A McKinney native, Angelia started her comedy career in 2005. Angelia had always liked comedy, however, her original passion was for poetry. She had been asked by legendary comedienne Mama Michelle to come to a showcase and perform. Angelia thought she would be reciting some of her poetry however little did she know the showcase was actually a comedy contest.
Angelia performed her first ever comedy bit and won first place. This was the beginning of her comedy career! Angelia continued to build and hone in on her craft by frequenting Nanette Lee’s Fat Tuesday Comedy shows.
