Funny Girl

Anjelah Johnson certainly doesn’t look like the average comedian. The sexy 27-year-old with a rockin’ bod more resembles an NFL cheerleader…which, in fact, she used to be for the Oakland Raiders. But instead of throwing pom-poms, she’s now throwing punch lines — about her half-Mexican/half-Native-American ancestry, her experience in a Korean nail salon and the differences in how black and Hispanic men try to pick her up. During a brief stint on Mad TV, she also created the character of “Bon Qui Qui” — a surly fast-food cashier whose response to customers with any complicated order is to call security (the clip is a YouTube hit). Johnson’s two shows in Houston will be filmed for a Comedy Central special, so wear your TV face. 7 and 9:30 p.m. Verizon Wireless Theater, 520 Texas. For information, call 713-230-1600 or visit $29.
