Fans howl every time she goes into her character Bon Qui Qui (a black woman with a serious attitude problem) or her nail salon routine (with Tammy, a Vietnamese attendant who pushes extra services). Johnson also jokes about gangsta-turned-Christian rappers who go to South Central Savior, where the pastor comes out with a 40-ounce for communion. Like the best comedians, Johnson exaggerates real-life events for her routines, making her humor seem simultaneously familiar and ridiculous. 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. Sunday. Houston Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713‑333-8888 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $32.
