Our incredible line up is:

and headliner Onika McLean

“Joke Sistas” is an unofficial sorority of the Black Women in Comedy Laff Fest. We are hilarious Black women that understand “we are not a monolith” and are strong advocates for telling it like it is, with love, emotional dexterity, and wit. Having over 25 years of combined experience, these Joke Sistas will leave you empowered, enlighted, and entertained.“
