Is comedy open for all? Well veteran comedian Luenell thinks differently. In a post on Instagram over the weekend, she decided to call out reality star NeNe Leakes for her recent attempt at stand-up comedy. Leakes announced back in April that she was kicking off a one woman comedy show. So when Luenell caught wind of Leake’s comedy venture she went on to address the matter by issuing this open statement.
Hello my good people….So…I am playing this club this weekend, right now….The COMEDY HOUSE in Colombia, S Carolina, and on my way 2 the ladies room I c This! Now y’all take this Any way you want to Bur, I have dedicated 26 years of HARD WORK 2 b able to call myself a Comic. It is a very elite club that I am Extremely proud 2 belong to. Most of the successful Comics you see on the grind today, touring have been putting in hard work, missing their children’s birthdays, graduations, track meets etc. for years and had to deal w/and work thru the guilt and pain of that on a daily basis. So I just find it Ironic that these days, it seems like any Reality Show celebrity or celebrity of Any type who wants to pop up and call themselves a Comic CAN….but a Comic can’t just pop up and as easily get a Show! Anybody can just walk into our profession, grab $ $ $ and when they get Tired…..they just stop and go back to the comfort of television. If I sound salty, it’s because i Am! I am not afraid 2 speak MY truth but believe me, I am Not alone n my thoughts. Well anyway…. I suppose that’s the great thing about living in America, you can get money in which ever way you want to so, with that being said I hope my good sister here has a great weekend and a successful run…that is, until she gets bored or tired.
Leakes did go on to respond to Luenell with the following; “I never said I was a comedian, so be clear about that! I find it ironic that you took the time to comment on the moves I make but you had no problem helping Wendy Williams and you had no problem coming on my show filming with Claudia Jordan..” Only time will tell how this plays out but is comedy only for a select few?
