KJ Whitehead

Queen of Radical Comedy

Chicago based Comedian, Writer, Stand Up Comedy Coach, Proud Black Transgender Nihilist.

 

Kujichagulia Juniper Whitehead

Or just KJ, is Chicago's Queen of Radical Comedy. Unapologetically black, queer, trans and pissed off! For 7 years now, 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.
