Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! This morning I wanted to encourage you, unlock something inside of you and release something great into your life. I asked God what I should say to all of you reading my blog this morning, and this is what I got.

I just want to speak a spirit of confidence and boldness to all the men. I pray that men across this nation would rise up and know their identity, that they would know the strength that they have and they would use it to love, to lead, and to bring about change. I pray that men would lead by example. Even if they didn’t have a man in their life growing up that spoke encouraging words to them, my prayer is that they would be the men in others lives to say “You are strong, you are courageous, you can do it, you are needed, you are loved, you are one of a kind, people look up to you, Don’t be afraid, you are powerful, You are not alone.” I want to encourage all the dreamers out there who have ever thought to themselves, “wouldn’t it be awesome if I could do that” I want to say to you that you can! why not? seriously, why not?? Why not you? Someone has to do it so why not you? Why can’t you be the one to create that, build that, be that, write that, save that, own that? You are the only thing holding you back from taking those steps of faith. Despite what your circumstances say I just want to speak life in to you. God has a plan for you. Not to harm you but to prosper you, to give you hope and a future. To those of you who are scared to dream because you think you don’t deserve it I just want to say to you that is a lie that you have been agreeing with for far to long. You have something great in you that the world is waiting for. You don’t need to have been born with good looks and money and fame. You just need to have a determination to be exactly who God created you to be and nothing less. I want to give you all permission today to believe in yourself. I want to give you all permission to dream the dreams that God has placed in your heart. He created you specifically and uniquely for a purpose. Ask Him today what that is. I’m speaking to myself today too. There are still dreams in my heart that I want to see in real life, not just in my mind. There are times when I doubt myself and what God is doing in me and how He is using me. There are times when I need to remind myself that I can do it! Sometimes I need to remind myself that there is something inside me that the world is waiting for, that the world needs and they are not going to get it if I just sit on my butt and coast by or if I stay locked in a place where the fear of failure paralyzes me. I want to be brave. I want to live at my full potential being exactly who God created me to be.

Happy New year everyone. 2013 here we go!

    Hi there! You’re coming to my home town Visalia and I’m definitely going to see you. But its My younger sister’s birthday she’ll be 15 around the time you come and she LOVES YOU, watches all your videos and I’d really like to surprise her with tickets. Do you think it would be ok or appropriate? She’s pretty mature but… 15 years old, I’m not sure? Please let me know soon so I can get good tickets. Thanks Kayla

  2. Kirsten, January 5, 2013:

    You are so talented. I know we’re not on your tour this time. But in the future we would love to see you in Tucson, Az. I hope you’ll be able to come here too. :)

    I’m assuming you probably read the feedback, especially if this was written with the intent of it being read. I like what you said about men finding their identities. I’d like to add my favorite 2012 moment- I took a transnational feminism class to say the least i learned a lot about my self, as a woman and women. I also learned that the roles of manhood masculinity and femininity and how they are formed through our patriarchal structures. I think reinforcing men’s perception of their identity as a collective and the need to encourage their virtues such as fatherhood for example are needed and missing. I do appreciate the female jokes we always get a male perspective it is so refreshing have a real females perspective. Anje – thank you, for the laughs time and space. I hope you have a great 2013! diosa!

    My nieces who are triplets (2 of them are identical twins), absolutely love your performances. They have seen all your videos they can find online & know the words to your act. Not a day goes by that they don’t have some sort of joke or reference from your show. I had the opportunity to meet and take a pic with you in Portland. After seeing the pic the oldest of the three says if I get the opportunity to meet you again, to make sure I mention her. They turn 14 in January and I would love to bring them to your show in February. If I brought them down to your show in Visalia, is there ANY possible way they can meet and take a pic with you. They would absolutely be grateful, even if it’s for a minute.

    Thanks from your crazy loyal fans from GUAM!!

    Anjelah I love your standup routine….it’s hilarious! I see you’re on tour but I see nothing for the East Coast? I live in Harrisburg, Pa so if you have a show in the DMV, Philly or NY area I can definitely check it out! Keep up the great comedy and always be yourself! Oh and not all black guys look past you lol…I’d definitely check you out if you walked passed me lol! Ciao Bella

  17. Ryan Davis, January 16, 2013:

    Hey Anjelah, I seldom listen to female comedians because they are almost always vulgar. I saw the cover of the “that’s how we do it” dvd and figured that the old fashon look was compensation for a dirty show. I took a chance and was so pleasantly surprised. You are so pretty and talented. I appreciate you keeping it clean. I am a pastor and the gossip prayer meeting is so True! lol Your use of accents is great. You have a new fan in me and I will tell others about you. I laughede so hard. I hope you have great success! God Bless

    Your newest fan
    Ryan

  24. Tony, January 19, 2013:

    Anjelah, I have to say that 2012 was not a good year. But, your words here and your comedy give that flicker of hope going into the new year. Never knew who you were before today. You are truely an inspiration to others.

  26. Greg, January 23, 2013:

    Saw you at the HOB in Houston the last time you came through and loved every minute! Even my wife, who’d accused me of only wanting to see you for your looks, ended up laughing the entire time and begrudgingly admitted she loved your show. Changing a jealous Caucasian woman’s mind… now THAT takes real talent!! ;)

  27. Selvyn, January 23, 2013:

This time I’m bringing my whole family because we are all huge fans. Laughter is the best medicine and when I need a pick me up I just watch one of your clips and it instantly brightens my day. Thank you for being you and being real. Take care!!! Remember to come to Alabama!

  35. Jennifer, January 29, 2013:

  36. pamela baxley, January 29, 2013:

    Hey Girl,

    I have been imitating you as Bon Qui Qui and Tammy for a couple of years now (sure I AM the only one ;)
    Me and all my thirty and forty something friends think you are awesome. Especially love that you are a Christian and keep your shows clean but hilariously funny. My kids turned me on to your humor and they are teens so YES, I APPROVE!!!!
    Please consider coming to Va Beach Virginia (Funny Bone, Chrysler Hall etc) we are becoming a hub. Would absolutely love to see you live. Congrats on you marriage. Saw your Y-tube bio and he is a nice nice man. You are truly blessed. Keep the positive vibe and praising God. Can I get a woop woop?

  37. Cierra, January 29, 2013:

    Hay I am A huge Fan And I can Sing To And I was Wondering if you could help me become famous 704-903-2449 Thanks

  38. Rudy, January 30, 2013:

    Anjelah, Thanks for the encouragement. I just read your New Years Blog encouraging men. I thought it was Great. Guys really need to hear that kinda stuff, especially from women. That makes a difference. Glad to see you are using your “platform” to speak a positive message. Words can hurt and words can heal. You really never know who might stumble across your words, and the impact they might have at just the right time in their life. Stay Strong, stay humble, May God continue his work in you.

  39. Johnny Landin, January 30, 2013:

    I heard you on Pandora and let me just say as a latino I always say George Lopez is my boy but you have a bright future ahead of you! The first time I heard you I was driving and had my buds in and laughed so hard I nearly rear ended a car on the freeway! I live in Washington state but have a sister in Riverside and I will be coming to see you there! Great impressionist, extremely Funny, drop dead looks… you are all that! Keep up the excellent work!

  40. Vanessa, January 31, 2013:

    Please think about doing a show in Syracuse, NY. Winters here suck and we need something to brighten them up! =)

  41. Esther Prine, January 31, 2013:

  42. Valerie, February 1, 2013:

    On your tour are you coming to Arizona?

  43. Arwen, February 1, 2013:

    We all would be oh-so-grateful if you were to come to Missouri. Preferably, Springfield. But, even somewhere like Kansas City would do as well. Hope you consider…I’m sure it would be a huge hit!! Love you girl!

  44. Janette, February 1, 2013:

    When do you think youll be coming to Florida?

  45. Susan, Feb 3, 2013, February 3, 2013:

    I just want to express what a BLESSING it is to see a Godly woman, in the public eye, who is funny/positive/and unashamedly Christian! I teach at an inner city middle school, and I tell my kids all the time to put positive things/people before their eyes. I play Group 1 crew/LeCrae/Tobymac, etc in my class daily, I quote “bon qui qui” to get them laughing, and how AWESOME that you inspire POSITIVE behavior and thoughts in people! Be blessed in ALL you put your hand to…You AND Manuel! MARANATHA…Our Lord Cometh!

  46. April, February 3, 2013:

    Please come to Birmingham, Alabama.. I didn’t know you were here last time.. I would LOVE to see your show!!

  50. Christine "DJ Lady Spin", February 8, 2013:

    I just watched your that’s how we do video on netflix. I was extremely impressed with your talent and performance and your clean family oriented show. It’s refreshing to be able to watch a comedian that doesn’t have to be foul to be funny. Keep doing what you are doing! :)

  51. Sal Pacheco, February 8, 2013:

    Hi Anjelah. I read that you are part Native American. If you don’t mind me asking, what tribe of Native American are you?

  52. Pepper, February 10, 2013:

    I saw your show last night in Dallas. I haven’t laughed that hard for that long in a good while! You were amazing!

    I really wanted to get the husband and wife shirts you showed on stage, but the merch table after the show was a big cluster! Where can I find those online? I checked your store and they weren’t there.

  53. susany, February 11, 2013:

    My daughter and I saw your show last night at the majestic in dallas. We had such a good time! Would looove for you to work nursing in one of your skits. We see a lot of late night humor in the hospital…

  54. Irene Rios, February 11, 2013:

    My husband and I went to see you in Corpus. You were awesome! ! Loved it so much!! But I’m from the Rio Grande Valley, you should really come down here. I would go see you again in a second! ! And I would take all my friends with me. Much love…Irene

  55. Michelle, February 12, 2013:

  56. Gilbert, February 12, 2013:

  57. Johnny Landin, February 13, 2013:

    The nosy sister, I get it!
    But picking on your buelito? That’s just wrong so wrong on so many levels but it sure is hilarious! :) P.S. I told My galfriend to watch one of your clips and she is still laughing about Bon qui qui! Hope to see you in Riverside!

  58. Bridgette Burns, February 13, 2013:

    Hi Anjelah, I just heard you on Fernando & Greg this morning! I heard you on their show last time you came to the bay too. Unfortunately, your show was already sold out by the time I knew you were performing, so I didn’t get to see you that time.

    So I’m super excited to know you’ll be back in San Jose May 4th! I already tried to buy tickets, but I see they aren’t available yet. Please tell me when they go on sale. :-)

  59. tdyp, February 14, 2013:

  62. Laryssa Calley, February 18, 2013:

    Hello Anjelah! I am a huge fan of yours and recently heard that you have an amazing testimony. I am a chairperson for my church’s ladies event this year which will benefit our local women’s shelter. We would be so honored to have you be our special guest. With your presence, we could sell-out our event and further our efforts to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. We are located in Little Rock, AR. I will contact your manager tomorrow but hope you will prayerfully consider my request. Our event is scheduled for July 19, 2013. God Bless you!

    Anjelah thank you for listening to God and posting this up. Lately I’ve been feeling unsure with myself and discouraged from my ministry and this post has spoken to me in such a powerful way. It truly is amazing how God speaks because i was just here to see what time your show started in Visalia. Anyway thank you for these words of encouragement :)

  66. Jen, February 21, 2013:

  76. duane elliott, February 24, 2013:

    i wish you and manuel long lives of romance love. it is clear that you are both so in love. your comments on being the best wife were touching.
    you are rare in this day.

    i am not an old man, nor a young man and i am contemplating getting married again, divorced in 93. never thought it possible, then i attracted a woman to me from the other side of the planet 12 years ago. It’s a love story no doubt. We chatted for six years and then she came here.

    Your humor is without profanity, which takes comedic genius to pull off.

    this is the first time to your site. after seeing your wedding video I wanted to paint a painting for you.
    U2Kartist.com

    Your wedding was truly beautiful, as you and manuel are.

  77. duane elliott, February 24, 2013:

    Manwell
    you attracted this wonderful woman to you with all your songs, and thoughts, and manifistations

    purly the power of attraction
    so happy for you

  78. Heather, February 25, 2013:

    Come to ATLANTA!!!!! :)

  79. Franco's, February 28, 2013:

    Just wanted to let you know how much our youngest daughter, Marcella, just loves you. She gets her Kindle fire out and watches, on Netflix, “That’s how we do it” all the time, her favorite it about the cheerleaders. Well, today is her 10th birthday 2/28, and last night we purchased tickets to see you in Boise, ID and we live in Bend, OR. That’s the closest you get to us on your tour.

    Today was the first time I heard your stand-up comedy, and I think you’re hilarious!So I came on the website to see what you are all about and I am also Native American, from the Mohawks of Kahnawake (right near Montreal) so I think it’s really great that you’re a native woman comic. Your blog was very inspirational and it was exactly what I needed to hear, so I just wanted to say thanks for the wise words. You go girl!

  88. Franco, March 26, 2013:

    So…I know you’ve been asked before about where you got the t-shirt you wore in your That’s How We Do It stand up, just cuz I saw it was a previous comment when I was searching for it on Google…not cuz im a mind reader &/or stalker. But, your response didn’t show on the page so I still can’t find the shirt. Where did you get it? Thank you Paisa Johnson!! :)

  92. Keith, April 5, 2013:

    I just discovered you I love the humor, you were in a club and did a shout out to the audience after explaining you mixed blood. You should have done a shout out to us natives as well and listened to the silence then the sound of crickets….except for all theose damn ghostly looking ‘part Cherokee’ folks the silence could have been awesome.
    Much love to you from the Rez up here in Northern Minnesota.

    I saw you for the first time on Sunday in Houston. You are very funny, but I have to say we were all disappointed that you did not do the “nail salon” part of your show. There were a lot of first timers there and we were looking forward to it and were very disappointed.

    Please tell me you are coming back to Dallas next year?

  118. Monique Rodriguez, July 12, 2013:

    PREACH IT GIRL! I enjoyed your New Year’s prayer and I stand with you in agreement. Knowing who you are in Christ is key in how we will respond to life’s challenges. Our self-identity will either make us or break us…I pray that every person will know the love and redemptive power of Jesus in their lives. My prayer for you Anjelah….may God establish you in His word and will. That every crooked path be made straight…everything that you touch prosper for His honor and glory. I pray for boldness to overcome you as you use this platform to be a vessel of honor unto God. Go forth with courage and in the knowledge of His word…you are more than a conqueror and overcomer in this life. Be blessed and blessings to your parents who have raised you to reverence the Lord! Come to San Antonio!

  119. Mrs. Pelayo, July 14, 2013:

    Hi Angelah, i just wanted to tell you, I love your videos on YouTube, my husband and I love watching them, anyway ill be going to ur show u will be having this November in Riverside, California. Hoping next year u will be having a show in city of Los Angeles.

  120. stacey, July 22, 2013:

    Help Please! I have tried two shirts, at two different times and have been unable! :-( Don’t be Ruuuuu

  121. Barbara McQ, July 23, 2013:

  122. Lucy, July 23, 2013:

    Hi Anjelah,
    I just want to tell you that I love your comedy! You are hilarious!! You really should to come visit the Midwest. The Chicagoland area is a great place to visit and there many great venues that have welcomed other Latino comics (Carlos Mencia and George Lopez) with much success. There are many locations in the city of Chicago, but many of us live in the suburbs and we’d love to see you a little closer to home. Some places that I would recommend are the Paramount Theatre in Aurora, IL and the Rialto Theatre in Joliet, IL. Please come, we’d love to see you live!

  123. Vincent, July 25, 2013:

    Just “discovered” you yesterday by accident while channel surfing. You were being interviewed by Mario Lopez on NUVO TV. You made me a follower. I like your material and your also easy on the eyes. I heard your husband’s band play at KLOVE/AIR1s annual banquet in January. My best to both your careers.

  124. Lindsay and April, July 26, 2013:

    We love you! Your impersonations are beyond impressive and you are one of the funniest comedians we have seen. Please make a trip back to Louisiana so we can see you live again!

  125. kewon Kaleb, August 2, 2013:

  126. Brenda, August 3, 2013:

    My 7 year old adores you! I can’t tell him you are married! LOL! He uses your act all the time in our day to day conversations. He’d love to meet you if he ever had the chance! I’ll explain that you are married later! ;)

  127. J.A.M, August 3, 2013:

    I love you like frfr (not the crazy obessed kind lol) I was really in a dark place and listening to your story and what you do and the music helped me get myself back on track. But i know your not really an artist but i still want to do a song with you if thats possible. I’m 15 so i’m still a young Rapper. But i really want to say thanks for bringing me out my darkness.
    J.A.M

    Anjelah, I sure hope you can make it to the East Coast sometime to perform. Particularly, NC would be awesome! Love you and love your Hubby’s music as well. Many Blessings!!

  130. Adriana, August 20, 2013:

    Hey Anjelah,
    My fiancé and I will be getting married November 16, 2013, but we are having a Co-Ed Bachelor/ Bachlorette Party and on our itinerary for that weekend your show at Spotlight 29 on November 2nd. See you then

  131. Tracy Fernandez, August 21, 2013:

    Hi Anjelah,
    I have a question. I have seen you try to eat a tomatoe and from what I can tell (by the way you keep gagging) it makes you physically sick. #1 what is it about them that makes you want to hurl and #2 why are you torturing yourself. There are other vegetables honey just let it go. Just say NO! :) p.s. love your work!

  132. Rita Lolita, August 31, 2013:

    Hi Anjelah,

    I know you are a West Coast girl, but come one, you gotta spread the love around on the East Coast! Richmond, VA welcomes you. Would love to see you come to the River City. You have tons of fans here :o )

  133. Yesenia Morales, September 2, 2013:

    Hey:-)
    I’m exited that you are coming to bakersfield .

  134. Bill Lawrence, September 3, 2013:

    I first heard about Anjelah from my niece when she told me “You have to see this girl. She looks exactly like Ginger”. Ginger is my daughter, born Dec, 14, 1981, exactly 6 months before Anjelah. Sure enough, side by side they could pass for twins. Many other similarities. Ginger is also part Mexican, part Navajo, Some differences. Ginger has the same voice, gestures, attitude, sense of humor, ability to mimic accents, creativity, and stage presence. Anjelah’s doppelganger. But she’s a klutz. Not athletic, can’t dance a lick. Doesn’t give a rip about sports. She dropped out of Lee Strasburg in 2001 and joined the Marine Corps. Now, after 12 years and four times gone to war, she’s back in Los Angeles going to auditions and trying to figure out what to do next. She Loves Anjelah, and if she ever get the chance, will attend a performance. I’ll go too if I can. Could cause some confusion if she slips up near Anjelah. People will wonder who is who.

  135. Kasey, September 6, 2013:

    COME TO OHIO! We would love to see you here.

  136. Faith Diokno, September 6, 2013:

    Hey Anjelah! I just want to say that you are such an inspiration to me. Reading your blog, I can see God’s light shining thru u and in everything u do. I’m so glad that we have a minority female, and a Christian representing!!! i am an aspiring music producer/rapper. i make mashups and i am the leader of my youth band at church. we need more ppl like you who are positive inspirations to young ppl, who are too afraid to go after their dreams. or never realize God’s true purpose for their lives. or are just going down the wrong path. you are so funny! and entertaining, and very talented and beautiful. i really admire what u are doing! keep up the good work!!! Also, u neeeed to come to DC!!! i really wanna see u perform live. if u come, i’ll make sure everyone and their grandma is there!!! i love u girl!!! hope to meet u one day.

  137. Marc Ciborowski, September 10, 2013:

    I am 44 & I have been following worthwhile comedic talent since I was a teen. My top 2 laugh-your-culo-off heroes up until now have been George Carlin (RIP) & Louis C.K. That includes a few 100 comedians along the way..too many too mention. I discovered your “This is how we do it” by accident on Netflix, off a Kevin Pollak, “More like this” link. I was locked in immediately, laughing the whole way through. Plus my ex is a hot, petite, half Columbian/ half Costa Rican..totally my type as a 6′ white boy (JK). Anyway, you are versatile, intelligent, & most of all talented. I’ve been watching all of your material & you have definitely made my top five laugh list. Buena Mierda!

  138. Xavier, November 3, 2013:

    Hey Anjelah! OMG i am a HUGE fab like udek! I lovve u! My favorite joke that u have is “i like to to be the ONLY one how uses my toothbrush!”

  139. Shan&Em, November 3, 2013:

    My daughter and I love you! I just bought our tickets to see you in Hawaii and we can’t wait. You certainly know how bring out the best belly laughs in a person, thank you!! She does a great bon qui qui but an even better nail salon rendition. She is 13 and coming to see you is what she wanted for her X-Mas gift! See you in Hawaii!

  140. Kj Williams, November 10, 2013:

    Hi Anjelah, just watched home coming show! Girl you are too funny, love your work!

  141. marlene, November 11, 2013:

    Hey anjelah, I am a big fan of yours however I think my four year old son is an even bigger fan. He loves watching you on youtube and we just watched your homecomming show and he loves it… the best part is that I have vidoes of him copying your stand up he even get a mic lol. One day when driving home he seen I got my nails done and they were short he said “mom that’s why u don’t have a biyfriend”… I so cried laughing so thank u for bringing laughter to out lil fam. ♥

  142. Michelle, November 17, 2013:

    Just watched your Homecoming Show and loved it!!! You need to come to Houston soon!!!

  143. Krista, November 19, 2013:

    Just watched your homecoming DVD and it was amazing… I really hope one day I can see you live in Seattle Washington because it would really make my day. Love ya!

  144. Jason, December 10, 2013:

    Just discovered your comedy on youtube and bought “That’s how we do it.” on I tunes. I too grew up poor and in my elementary class pics I am wearing the same shirt in 3 grades. Your comedy is awesome but I am most impressed by your devotion to God and your religion. Keep the faith and thank you for producing comedy I am not ashamed to listen to by myself or with the whole family.

  145. yvonne, December 13, 2013:

  146. Dave, December 18, 2013:

    You aren’t funny. You are annoying.

  147. Jasmyn, December 27, 2013:

    You are awesome! I first found you on netflix and I just finished watching Thats How We Do It for the 3rd time in 2 months. I wish you came to Canada though! You should go on a Canadian tour and come to Ottawa!

  148. Katlyn, January 2, 2014:

    Wow. Like that is what I needed. This year is going to be the year that I am no longer going to sit and let things happen to me. I’m going to happen to them and make a change. All these dreams I have are going into action this year!!

  149. Mr. Kane, January 4, 2014:

    To ms. Johnson-reyes, I hope and pray to see in more movies and hear you in cartoon movies. For your gift is most to see and hear. I look to find you tour landing you in Wash. DC Or northern Virginia. I have followed you with joy and laughter. I look forward to seeing you star in your own box office hit, one that shoots you to the female actress/comedian top leading star. God bless you and your family.

  150. Billy, January 8, 2014:

    Hey A, just watched your video on Netflix on a whim and really enjoyed it. You are talented (and have a beautiful smile…I’m just sayin’!). I’ll be telling my family and “home boys” about you’re hilarious sense of humor. I also wanted to comment on your new years statement. I can see that your faith in your
    Savior plays a big part in your life which guarantees your success. Fame will want to squash that but don’t let it. Also your expectations of a man is exactly what our creator had in mind, glad your bold enough to remind us…sometimes we need it. May God bless your ministry Anjelah, keep it real and thanks for the laughs… Billy out! (P.S. Dave’s “without”!)

  151. Diana jaimes, January 12, 2014:

    PLEASE COME TO CHICAGO!!!

  152. Mel, January 22, 2014:

    Hey Anj! I live in San Antonio and just drove by some new material for a future routine… we have a lot of “combo” stores. So yesterday I drove past “Lynn’s nails and alteration”, which is pretty cool because while they’re hemming up your pants they can be doing your nails at the same time!!! Brilliant! Then a few miles down was another store that just said, “Tacos & Cellphones”. Well duh! Why didn’t I think of that? If you could combine any two random businesses, what would you do? Thought that was pretty hilarious and might make for some good material. Have fun with that! :)
