Hosted by: Ashley Monique
Before starting her comedy career, Ashley Monique was a forensic scientist, so after she kills at a show she knows how to hide the bodies. She jokes about growing up as a mixed race, first-generation American, her experiences as a queer woman, and wry observations of growing up in Texas, all told with the quick wit that earned her first place at Cutthroat Comedy’s Tournament of Champions.
Ashley’s energy is earnest and genuine. She opens up about vulnerable topics in relatable and creative ways, and her shows will leave you feeling like you’re laughing with your new best friend.
