Bon Qui Qui Releases FULL album with Warner Music!

Bon-Qui-Qui-Gold-Plated-Dreams-album-cover[1]So here’s what happened, this record label named Warner Brothers Records heard Bon Qui Qui’s single, “I’m A Cut You” and offered her a record deal! Low and behold, we have Gold Plated Dreams!

I still can’t believe that I…I mean she, has a record deal at a major label and actually released a full album. I’ll be honest, I was ready to let this character die on the internet because I was just done with her. I got all “artsy” on myself and was like, (in Shakespeare/thespian/snobby voice) “I’m an artist. I am more than this one character! I have many leather bound books!”  blah blah blah. Then I had to stop and think about why I’m doing what I’m doing. Is it just for me and my own happiness? Or do I do what I do because I love to make people laugh and bring them joy? 

This career that I have is bigger than me. I feel that I have been called into this industry to bring love, laughter and joy to people! If Bon Qui Qui is doing just that, who am I to pull the plug on her because I feel I have something to prove? Who am I trying to prove it to? Haters? Other comedians? Other actors? People with clout? I decided that I didn’t need to prove anything to anyone. I just needed to commit to this gift that I’ve been given and follow through on what ever I feel God has put on my path in this journey called life.

I am so HONORED that I get to be Bon Qui Qui. Although the inspiration for this character is misunderstood at times, her only reason for existing is to make people laugh while pointing out that we all have a little bit of attitude in us regardless of what neighborhood we’re from.

So go on iTunes or Google Play Store and download Bon Qui Qui’s very first comedic Hip Hop album, #GoldPlatedDreams! Check out Bon Qui Qui on Instagram: @RealBonQuiQui, Facebook: Bon Qui Qui,  Twitter @RealBonQuiQui and her website www.BonQuiQuiMusic.com

    If there was No Bon Qui Qui,how would the world know the wonderful talent of Anjegla from the block,Thank You for making us Laugh “CHOLO”.Love you like a Rock Star…I would never “Cut You”.

  2. Cindy (from the block), January 26, 2015:

    Seriously, that bit is hilarious. You have made thousands of people laugh and get joy from it. It’s not mean spirited, and if people don’t know characters like that, I think they live a sheltered life. They are out there! Love everything you create, and always looking forward to hearing new material from you! God Bless!

    Bon Qui Qui makes us laugh at ourselves. At our own laziness (You’ll have a Coke.), at our own ability to go from 0-60 in 2.2 seconds(Sir, she tried to fight me.), and at our own tendency to not listen sometimes (Did you not see me put my order in??)We love her/us despite herself/ourselves! =)

    I think Bon Qui Qui should take a trip to Beautiful Nail. THAT would be epic. Can you imagine what she would say when asked, “How ya Mom?”

    God Bless you Anjelah! XOXO

  4. Nancy, January 26, 2015:

    girl, La Qui Qui has material to go on and on. She be representing all Cholas and Latinas in general. We love her!!

    Thank you! I saw you in Pensacola when you first told us that Warner Bros made the oh so smart decision about BQQ, that Mad TV I’m sure is stabbing themselves in the eye over and me and my bff couldn’t be happier!! BQQ has gotten us through so many rough patches and hardships. So many drunk nights and sober! She has brought humor to our lives when we needed it most. We quote her daily, and that “her” is you! God bless you for being who you are because of what you’ve seen and know. Characters like this are created by legends like Jim Carey did with so many and you are too! You are stuck on me for life no matter who you choose to be in the days to come! Congrats and keep on making people laugh! It’s your calling… But then, have a baby for us please :) lol sorry had to add that in I waited 13 years to have my son and you can too!

  8. Lisa, January 27, 2015:

    Glad you changed your mind because I bet you money the following has happened…someone sees/hears about Bon Qui Qui, watches the video on you tube, searches for more info about her/you, discovers all your other brilliant comedy, watches all of your other shows/videos,searches more and learns about your love story with Manwell, who also happens to be the other half of a wonderful Christian couple who proclaim their faith. The person who may have found you through Bon Qui Qui may *just* find their way to Jesus through you. Keep it up girl, it’s all part of the story He has written for you! :)

  9. alex ybarra, January 27, 2015:

    Angela, from the first time I saw one of your shows on Netflix, I knew you were my favorite comedian. I avoid stand up because everyone thinks they have to swear. You are so funny and multi-faceted. Thank you for being so great. Blessings, Lisa B.

    Congrats on Bon Qui Qui!!

  34. CanDee, April 7, 2015:

    Looking for tickets to your show on 7/28/15 in Charlotte but your website doesn’t show it. Can I get a link because I don’t want to miss it! Thanks!

  35. Andrea, April 8, 2015:

    Just want to know when you will be making a stop here in San Antonio. My 15 year old daughter loves your stand up. As do I, and my boyfriend. We even catch ourselves doing Tia Mary’s, “Aye, Sorri Dog” lol you just HAVE to stop here!

  36. nancy, April 12, 2015:

    Looking for tickets for your Dallas show this summer but I can’t seem to find any. Are they sold out already. Wanting to take my niece she is one of your biggest fans and she hates that she miss your show in Houston. I’m trying to take her for her birthday please i want to know if their are still ticket for your Dallas show.

  37. Atrevino, April 16, 2015:

    FB says you are coming to Dallas o July 23rd but I don’t see it I n here? Can you verify if you are coming to Dallas then. Too bad you are not showing in Houston, you have a lot of fans there.

  38. Kristen, April 20, 2015:

    Please find Asian ringtone on iTunes, the one for ‘your sister is calling’. I have this ringtone for when my sisters call, and it makes me laugh every time. Once you’ve heard it, you’ll appreciate that one of my sisters called while I had my hands in the light boxes baking on my gel polish. I could do nothing but hang my head, and I got really nervous when I heard how quiet my nail tech had gotten. Finally I looked up and said ‘so sorry’, and tears were rolling down her face she was laughing so hard. She says to me ‘honey, is ok. He sound Chinese, I from Vietnam. That so funny! Play again!’ Made me think of you!

  39. Roxie Brown, May 1, 2015:

    are all of the tickets to the Dallas show sold?

  40. Kiele, May 13, 2015:

    PLEASE COME TO DENVER, ‘LIL LADY.

  41. Diane, May 31, 2015:

    Please please please come to Austin or San Antonio! I’m so late to the party and just found you. My husband thinks you are the BEST! Thank God we don’t have a daughter. He’d name her Bon Qui Qui.

  42. Gabriel, June 3, 2015:

  43. Valyne, June 24, 2015:

    Heyy!!!! You are GREAT!!!! You should do another trip back to Guam!!!!

  44. Deb, June 25, 2015:

    I bought 8 tickets the day I found out you were coming to town. Guess what? My job is sending to a conference and now I can’t go. I am so bummed. My family will have a great time without me.

  45. Teirrah McNair, July 6, 2015:

    So appreciative of your work. We used Bon Qui Qui at King Burger for a Sponsored Employment Program youth job readiness training and it worked wonderfully. Our takeaway points were ‘Be recommendable, hire-able and promotable.’ You should have seen the expressions on the young people’s faces when they were asked to write a recommendation for Bon Qui Qui. The moment was priceless and so is your work. Thanks a million!

  46. Gladys Williams, July 7, 2015:

    No Fl.at all bookings.:( Why?

  47. Pedro, July 8, 2015:

    Are the tickets to Anjelah Johnson Presents Bon Qui Qui Live In ConcertHouse of Blues Dallas, Dallas, TX sold out?

  48. Mark Hnatyszyn, July 13, 2015:

    Went to your show last night in San Diego, but while your comedy is truly funny, we were awfully disappointed. My wife loves your comedy, and we had been looking forward to this night for weeks. So, after waiting an hour to see you in a super crowded and noisy room, you came on for only 15 minutes, and then the band played on and on for at least 45 min (who knows how long, we left at that point). We did not come to be forced to listen to a drawn out concert when we really wanted to see you. We left and went home disappointed and feeling snookered.

  49. Cristina, July 13, 2015:

    Like the previous posting, I too felt disappointed. While you and your husband are both talented and vibrant, I chose to see comedy last night – not attend a concert, nor in Bon Qui Qui’s instance, a parody of a concert. More stand up, less time to “get into character” (Group1Crew filler) would be closer (and fairer) to what your audience expects and pays well to see.

  50. Manuel, July 21, 2015:

    We loved your show in Las Vagas. I know it was the Bon Qui Qui tour but I’m glad you gave us some stand up as well. Manwel and his band are awesome. Last but not least BQQ and her amazing dancers jammed/rocked/brought the house of Blues to their feet. It was a great show. I wish it was longer. We laughed to tears, and continued laughing the next day. Keep up the good work. *Sacurity*

  51. Elmer Downs, July 22, 2015:

    I went to the Bon Qui Qui live show in SF (loved it), and I really enjoyed Manwell’s music. I wanted to download it on iTunes. Is there a setlist I can see or an album name to look for?

  52. Lorie, July 25, 2015:

    Would love to see you in Colorado Springs . Please consider coming here!
