Retha Jones, a native of Los Angeles, has been performing Stand up comedy for nearly 20 years. She began after she tried her hand in modeling and acting for 10 years. Shortly after her return from touring with America’s most successful black stage play, Shelly Garrett’s Beauty Shop, Retha’s decided to pursue a career in stand up comedy. She has since been literally tickling funny bones across America having made several club and television appearances on BET’s COMIC VIEW, Comedy Central’s PREMIUM BLEND, HBO’s DEF COMEDY JAM, and NBC's Last Comic Standing where she reached the semi finals.
In 2007, Retha placed 1st Runner Up in the Bay Area Black Comedy Competition. She was also crowned Winner of the 2007 California's Funniest Female contest, and Winner of the 1st Annual California Comedy Festival.
Retha can also be seen in various film and television projects such as UPN's One on One, Lifetime's STRONG MEDICINE, and Breakaway Film's MY BIG PHAT HIP HOP FAMILY.
In 2003 Retha was dubbed by L.A. TIMES as on of “Five To Watch.”
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.
