Zainab Johnson

  • Bio

    Zainab Johnson is a stand-up comedian, actress, and writer. She is quickly being propelled as one of the most unique and engaging performers on stage and screen.

    Zainab’s comedy is based on her unique point-of-view, which was shaped growing up in Harlem as one of thirteen siblings in a black Muslim family.  After getting a degree in Math and Education and taking a job as a teacher, she quickly learned that she had a different calling…

    Zainab is currently a series regular on the new Amazon Original hit series titled “Upload” from Greg Daniels, she is one of the hosts for Netflix’s show “100 Humans”, and starred as Dr. Hanniel in the brilliantly written web series Avant-Guardians. She made her first late night stand up appearance on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers  and had breakout appearances on HBO’s All Def Comedy,  NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and has performed at the JFL Comedy Festival in Montreal first as a “New Face of Comedy”, then as “Variety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch”, and most recently on the longest running JFL show “Just For The Culture”. She is a paid regular at The Comedy Store, The Improv, and Laugh Factory  in Los Angeles as well as the Comedy Cellar in New York City.

    Zainab is truly a treat to watch live and there is no performer like her so make sure you check her out when she’s in a city near you!
