Luenell may be small in stature, but she more than makes up for it with her big personality. If she’s in the room, you’ll know it. Her booming voice and infectious laughter is a dead giveaway that you’re in the midst of her company.
Easily recognizable for her signature look – that is, her platinum blonde Caesar haircut, beautifully manicured long nails and a blinged-out pimp cup in hand – Luenell, has been thrilling audiences with her brand of comedy for almost 20 years. She calls herself the “Original Bad Girl of Comedy.”
Luenell appears in the Oscar-nominated film, “A Star is Born,” directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Cooper and Lady Gaga. With eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and a win for Best Original Song, Luenell is happy to have a small part in a big film! In addition, Luenell rocks the mic in the new Showtime comedy special, called “Funny Women of a Certain Age,” on Showtime, sharing the stage with Fran Drescher (“The Nanny), Carole Montgomery, Lynne Koplitz, Kerri Louise and Vanessa Hollingshead. Plus, she makes a cameo appearance in the music video, “I Like Boys,” by former American Idol singer/songwriter and choreographer Todrick Hall, which has already amassed more than 2.8 million views on YouTube.
