*Los Angeles — For decades Luenell – who was born in the “rrrrural” town of Tollette, Arkansas – has been making audiences laugh.

From her early days in Oakland at Soul Beat Television to her sojourn to the City of the Angels where she began her stand-up comedy career at Ms. Whiz in Long Beach (where she was spotted by legendary comic Robin Harris), to big screen accomplishments in Never Die Alone and So Fresh So Clean to receiving international recognition for the cult classic film Borat, to her city to city tours with iconic comedian, Katt Willams, this lady of laughter has made an indelible mark in the field comedy.

Over the years, Luenell has received great notices; “Her reputation as a comic superstar continues to flourish, “…comedy demolition machine” (Eurweb report) “a sidesplitting high wired act without a net…” (Comedy Reviewer, Buddy Sampson), “…comedy to die for.” (Metro LA)  “…one of the top 25 funniest people in LA (Los Angeles Magazine) and other great reviews.  

On Friday, December 17th, 2010, Luenell will receive well-deserved recognition as one of the world’s greatest living comics, in the company of her peers at Stevie’s Creole Restaurant, Encino, CA 91316. The event promises to be one of the jolly highlights of the holiday season 2010.

Luenell continues to appear at venues across the US and can be seen in two comedy films Budz House and 35 and Ticking both set for release in 2011. The best is yet to come! Marc Gaspard produces. Music performance by R&B/gospel singer Abraham McDonald.
