About

LUENELL | at a glance

“ … one of the top 25 funniest people in LA.” – LA Magazine
Luenell is the “Original Bad Girl of Comedy.” She may be small in stature, but she more than makes up for it with her big personality, booming voice and infectious laughter. Born in Tollette, Arkansas and raised in Oakland, Calif., Luenell, has been thrilling audiences with her brand of comedy for more than 30 years..”

She is one of the most sought-after and in-demand female comics on the scene. She’s currently headlining her own tour, titled “The Fresh Out of Favors Comedy Tour” as well as a residency in Las Vegas at Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club, located at the LINQ Promenade on the Vegas strip! Also, look for Luenell’s Netflix comedy special, titled, “Town Business,” executive produced by .THE. DAVE. CHAPPELLE and directed by THE. STAN LATHAN!

With the touch of a remote control, her body of work in television and film can be found on network and cable television as well as popular streaming services. The 2006 hit mockumentary-styled comedy film “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” was Luenell’s breakout role that introduced her to mainstream audiences around the world. Ironically, in the Oscar-nominated film, she portrays a prostitute, named Luenell, with a heart of gold. And in the end — just like Julia Roberts’s character in “Pretty Woman” — Luenell gets the guy! Other credits on the big screen include two Eddie Murphy movies – that is, the “Coming 2 America” sequel and “Dolemite Is My Name,” “A Star is Born,” “Spring Breakdown,” “All About Steve,” “Think Like a Man,” “Think Like a Man Too” and “Taken 2.”

On the small screen, Luenell can be seen in “Hacks,” “The Last O.G.,” “The Middle,” “Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” “Headcase,” “Chocolate News,” “The Tony Rock Project” and “Californication” – just to name a few. Plus, Luenell is featured in the docuseries “Phat Tuesdays,” on Amazon Prime Video, which celebrates “Phat Tuesdays” at The Comedy Store, the influential comedy showcase that helped launch the careers of some of the most famous Black comedians in the industry today.

Luenell’s latest comedy CD, “Luenell Live: I Only Drink at Work,” is available on digital platforms everywhere. For more about Luenell, visit www.HeyLuenell.com.
