JACKIE FABULOUS, a native New Yorker from The Bronx, moved to California 15 years ago to get a law degree and a husband. After successfully earning her Jurist Doctorate and eloping in Vegas, Jackie learned she was better suited to play a lawyer on television and that standup comedy was the actual love her life. Divorced and ready to party, Jackie Fabulous realized her destiny was to become a multifaceted performer that is at her best when she’s riding waves of laughter by connecting with all races, genders, and social economic classes on a very personal level. Jackie had many compelling reasons to move back to The Bronx after getting her degree and failing at marriage. But the financial hardship of being a struggling artist and her younger sister becoming the victim of a crime relegating her to a wheel chair for life only motivated Jackie to fulfill a completely different calling that came to her in her 30’s after 4 years of law school.
The charismatic, witty and multi-talented San Diego native entered the world comedy two years
ago. Within this short amount of time, Jonnae has produced two college comedy series (Tickle Me
Tuesdays and Laugh Your Class Off) at California State University Northridge, where she gives student comics the
opportunity to share the stage with some of the nation’s greatest headliners. She has hosted
shows and concerts for some of the nations greatest performers such as Grammy-award
winner India Arie. She has also shared the stage with the nations greatest headlining comics and
has become a regular at The World Famous Comedy Store, The Comedy Union, and other
comedy clubs and venues throughout California and Las Vegas. Jonnae has also appeared in
various independent films.
As a woman comedian, actor, host and producer in a male-dominated industry Jonnae has and
will always keep true to her values and goals. “I made a vow to God to be a clean comic. I
made a vow to myself not to be a CORNY, clean comic.” Jonnae accredits all success to God
and knows that through him all things are possible. “When life gives you lemons ... Just laugh.”
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
