Comedian Tristan Johnson https://www.facebook.com/ComedianTristanJohnson
Comedian Tristan Johnson was raised in Oakland California always had charisma, being quick witted became known as silly. But in 2009 he gave birth to being a comedian. Comedy was life changing and Johnson became smitten with the mic creating his three stage personas: himself; his “silly side,” Trissie Tris; and his “thug-silly side,” Hoody 2 Shoes. His aggressive style of comedy landed him producing his own show Nutty Mondays, in the heights of Sacramento.
On stage this refreshing comedian Tristan Johnson leaves no room for sensitivity, he even makes a few jokes about himself ; race, religion, stereotypes, relationships and sex are all fair game when he hits the stage. As a Class A truck driver he spent a lot of time on the road thinking of crazy stuff that is relate able to all. His skits can be located on you-tube include: Rent a Nigga & Any Trissie Sunday. Watch out for this comedian currently residing in Los Angeles, he has his mamas hips and his tag lines have a future in comedy.

The first performance Jerrell did, he was 18. It happened at downtown Vallejo’s
Listen and Be Heard. He recalls the experience as being more difficult than just
telling jokes to friends and family. “I was real nervous and stuttered a lot, but got
a lot of laughs.” He was always the funniest person in class throughout school, yet
was told he wouldn’t actually be funny on stage. After that first performance he fell
in love with it. Proving the doubters wrong has been key in fueling Jerrell to keep
Jerrell was born one of seven children in Vallejo, CA. He participated in sports with
his brothers, but was always genius when it came to making his teammates and
family laugh. Over the course of his life Jerrell has dealt with the loss of a brother,

has only worked harder to perfect his craft.

This idea came from the many talented courageous independents/entrepreneurs across the nation that I ran across in my travels. Networking is key!
We are all FAMOUS in our own right, but I truly believe the independents in here have the potential to GET FAMOUS #realtalk
