Zainab Johnson's Bio

Zainab Johnson, a stand-up comedian, actress and writer, is quickly being propelled as one of the most unique and engaging performers on stage and screen. Zainab’s comedy is based on her unique point-of-view, which was shaped growing up in Harlem as one of thirteen siblings in a Muslim family. After getting a degree in math and taking a job as a teacher, she quickly learned that she had a different calling.

Zainab will next be seen starring in Greg Daniels’s upcoming Amazon series, UPLOAD, and recently made her late night debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Other recent credits include a recurring role in PowderKeg’s EAST OF LA BREA, created by Sameer Gardezi and executive produced by Paul Feig. She was honored as a New Face of Comedy at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and is developing a scripted television show based on her family, with Amy Poehler.
