Zainab Johnson

When: Thu., June 15, 8 p.m. and June 16-17, 8 & 10:15 p.m. 2017

If you, like most of America, missed the single-season reincarnation of The Arsenio Hall Show, you didn’t see a woman-on-the-street segment in which Zainab Johnson enrolls in a poll-dancing class. The first question she asks the instructor is whether she needs to get a pimp. Judging from her appearances on Last Comic Standing, Johnson isn’t usually so confrontational, but seems unconcerned with offending those who can’t or won’t take her jokes. Her enthusiasm and effortless charm might make it easier to forget getting your feelings hurt.
