.Zainab Johnson at The Improv

Anyone who grew up as one of 13 siblings knows they need to stick out in some way. Harlem-born and Los Angeles-based Zainab Johnson used her talents as a comic and actress to do just that. This weekend, Johnson will take the San Jose Improv stage for four shows to showcase her comedic chops, pulling from her experiences on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Netflix’s 100 Humans and Amazon Prime’s Upload. But it’s not just her time on late-night television and streaming services that Johnson brings to the stage; she’s been a regular at NYC’s Comedy Cellar, the LA Improv and Hollywood’s Comedy Store.
