Bon Qui Qui

When: Fri., April 22, 8 p.m. 2016

Former Oakland Raiders cheerleader and MADtv alum Anjelah Johnson is known for her stand-up comedy routine based in a nail salon (not to mention a series of Taco Cabana ads), but her biggest break may be opening for ex-King Burger cashier Bon Qui Qui on the “Gold Plated Dreams” Tour. The very attitude that made Ms. QQ such a nightmare as a fast-food employee on MADtv translates to instant icon status in novelty hip-hop, and the best joke about should-be hit singles “No Boyfren” and “I’ma Cut You” is that they’re probably catchier and cleverer than anything Iggy Azalea’s got left. That Bon Qui Qui is, in fact, Johnson in an outrageous weave and oversized hoop earrings elevates the joke to performance art Andy Kaufman could get down to.
