About

Kujichagulia Juniper Whitehead

Or just KJ, is Chicago's Queen of Radical Comedy. Unapologetically black, queer, trans and pissed off! For almost a decade, she's shared her experiences through observation and storytelling, but also blunt and vulnerable honesty about herself and how she sees the world. A graduate from Columbia College Chicago with a BA in Comedy Writing & Performance, Comedy Studies Alumni and someone who can occasionally be found burning the American flag and using the ashes as eye shadow.
