It bothers us that 90 percent of the descriptions you see of comedian Keisha Hunt mention how short she is, but how she still manages to be “a petite powerhouse.” We don’t know who coined that phrase, but any grown man who has been laid low by the iron grip of his tiny mother can attest to the fact that short women all seem to know judo.
We’d like to remind you that Hunt rose through the stand-up ranks right here in Houston. Folks like Bill Bellamy and Jamie Foxx took notice of her gritty intensity, helping her get on bigger stages. If we’re very lucky we’ll get to hear a Whitney Houston impression dedicated to smoking weed. Be sure to check out Keisha Hunt at 8 p.m. Houston Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway.
