6:31 pm
no. what is required of the form? she started out as a professional cheerleader for the oakland raiders. now las vegas rated and soon transition to comedy. she's released for comedy specials, and that's appreciable. that takes a lot of your material up, including the netflix, special not fancy angel is currently on tour on her. who do i think i am comedy chore. she's also releasing a book this, you're aptly named who what i think i am stories of cholo wishes and caviar dreams, as the great robin would say, it'll be released on march 15th angela johnson. how are angela? i am doing well. thank you. the touring right now, i want to did a couple days. i couldn't quite call to tour, but it's a different creature. like getting on stage is the easiest part. it used to be something where he's like, i gotta get on stage for an hour to have them. now you think i got them getting on stage just getting through the airport to the hotel out again. that's the tricky
6:32 pm
part on the road. right? is everything from you know, the new travel rules. ringback to even at the club, you know, like walking through the crowd to get to the stage. i like everybody wants to give high fives and stuff and i was like, oh maybe. maybe, maybe not, i'm good. how are you able to take your friend behind you? i see your nice poach with you or do you take the poach on the road with you? yes, i'm actually, i'm in my hotel now in miami shows all weekend. i bring my dog with me everywhere i go. he is literally my road dog. my friend john love, it says a dog named jerry brock time or the 3rd. and it's so funny to watch john, who's been such a loaner his whole life on the road. he never, it was always under him. so now all the sudden, every time i see me like paris hilton and season one of the show, he's got the dog and the correction. i said, i said, no john,
6:33 pm
what does it do for you? said i can't tell you how the therapeutic this dog is for me on the road. it makes me feel like i'm at home. let me tell you i, when i say i have an emotional support animal. like and then i used to be like, you know, with different motional support animal service, animal and the dinner and says, my wife agreed because the just right. but now you have to pay for more anymore. i have a big guy that we'll talk about later. but i 1st, you know, i've been to our, for 14 years. so, i mean, i have been in it as long as you've been in it, but for 2 years as a lot to be on the road away from your family, you from your friends, from your favorite grocery store, or from your bed, from your shower, and your perfect water pressure from, you know, all grocery shopping your has been like all the things. right and being on
6:34 pm
the road that long. i was in virginia beach and it was one of those weekend where i just feeling like have be like i would show up on stage do my comedy. and then i was just like fill in a type of way and then i met the dog and it was not my dog or somebody else, the dog and i picked it up and i held it and i felt like all the heaviness melts off of me and i was like, oh my god, i need to get a dog and start traveling with a dog. so i got him and had him for 3 years now and ever since then he comes to all my shows with me and it's like 9 day for my mental health. and i, i love it so much. god, you. so remind me a maya. do you know, my rudolph at all, you you the way you you kind of landed forward when she says something like that. and so a so many similarities in, you know, maya. i never met her, but if you'd like to introduce us, i would love to meet her and hug her. well, really,
6:35 pm
i think you too would be very symphonica because there's almost an erie sorta connected via there. how cool 60 cities across america. 2022. and what size by new york and angela, where are you going? where you're in miami now, for instance, how many nights in a row and we're out so this weekend, i'm at the miami in prague as i'm finishing up my, my, our tweaking and all of that. and then my theater tours start march 25th and i'll be doing a bunch of theaters across the united states. and it's going to be so much fun. and anytime i can tour, like with a bus and we travel on a bus, that's like the time at the verge that we're going to do that for a couple of the weeks, not the whole tour, but a couple of weeks. and that would be fun. and it's just so cool to just bounce from city to city and like coming to a new theater and again with my dog. he loved to explore and like sometimes i lose him and then all here like the maintenance guy on the radio, he's like, we got
6:36 pm
a dog over here for him. a lot of that and i'm like, oh that's mine. can you, can you bring them back the way you gotta, you gotta teach the poach to drive the bus, then you can amortize. you always margins out there on the road. angela? yeah, i think that in an odd way, when you go into theaters, i always felt a responsibility that were more people there and they had paid a higher ticket price. i'm not diminishing clubs, but clubs. you can go in and i always felt it was like the gym. it was night after night. they give you a little more leeway to try stuff because they almost want to be that close to the creative process. they're here, you're 5 feet away and they're kind of digging it. there's no presidium and you can really work it out. so what i hear you say that that was my vibe to i used to head to san diego, to the tempe improv in problems. always the best crowd. 4 and you can really fine tune the material at. yeah,
6:37 pm
absolutely. i love doing that in the comedy club and you play with the audience because they're still closed. they're right there with you as casual. they're eating there and just the vibe. and then in the theater it feels different. like should i feel like i should be fancy or a little more effort in something when you're done the seaboard now, but i see you were carolines recently in new york. i used to work along was in the south sea port, then they moved that i think right into the heart of the city, up there near the theater district. is there a discernible difference for you in the crowd in new york city, and then you moved on to miami loose, or flunky, or in miami, or tell me about the difference if there are any you know what i feel like there's lot tourist and locals when you're at carolina because it's right there in time square, but in my, me, me, it's for me for my crowd. it's very latino. it's very,
6:38 pm
even though it's like i makes again, we're all different. mac began to been the men again, puerto rican, everybody is different. but when i come here, it's super latino in the crowd, and i love to make fun of us and call the different versions of us in the audience. so every time i come to miami is that kind of i've, although i will say my very 1st time headlining ever was in miami, and i bombed so hard. i was supposed to do my hour and i was done with all my material in 25 minutes because i didn't have to wait for one lap. so what i listen, i'm sorry, but comedians like to talk about these things with other comedians because it 99.9 percent of the time when you reach a certain level, you get paid the hit the ball, but you realize it can go away really quickly. you can miss speak a joke, the next joke not strong. you're at a whole now you've got to pull something up from back and get it back. how did it
6:39 pm
go so wrong? your 1st through miami? what do you remember about the event itself? so i remember like it was yesterday and i talk about it in my book. it was my very 1st time headlining and it was joe, that cops club at miami, grow back in the day. you recall different locations here and i brought a friend of mine to open for me. i've never headlines. this is my 1st time bringing an opener. right. and he spoke spanish. i do not speak spanish. so when he went on stage, he was like speaking spanish here and there with the crowd and really getting them like on his team. you know, they're like, oh, we're the same. yeah. we were late, we get you right. then i came on stage and i'm still figuring out my voice, my perspective, my point of view, i'm still figuring out how i present myself on stage. i'm coming fresh off of being
6:40 pm
an open reader at. so at this time i was going on stage and i had a little bit of mid drift show in, you know, i had omega lip dick my hair done like i'm just, i come out too impressed and completely bombed. and after the show, the manager at the time getting in, he gave me the best advice that shifted my whole career. he was like, ok, i was like, i don't know what it is. i don't know how to get people on my team. i don't know how to get them to trust me to like me. and he was like, ok, here's the thing. when you go out there, you're a threat to the women because you come out here all pretty and they don't want their man laughing at you. and then you're distracting to the men because you're just being pretty. so they're not even listening to anything. you're you said, go out there for the next show. late show. i want you to put your her in a pony tail. put your hoodie back on up your hoodie all the way. take your lipstick off and go out there for the next show. it was night and day difference. what a great knowing unreal. sometimes club. sometimes you view the cat who is running
6:41 pm
the club is something in between you and do a good show because they have the most meddlesome nodes that is actually a goose bump. inducing what, what a great, great thing for him to lay on you that early high and they change and i get it. there's different ways, especially women, but we can perform on stage like i love to see, like how amy will go on stage. amy schumer and she has her beautiful dress on her heels, nicky glaser and like they're just like dressed to the nines and can were like short shorts and like a half top in their heels and still rock there. the stage with all confidence and that is so great for them. and i feel like for me, i definitely found my comfort and competence in my jeans and pennies. and you know my hair in a pony, my low hoody and like i found my sweet spot and i was like okay, this is where this is where i can can be competent. yeah. well the subtitle, the book charlo wishes and caviar dreams. you got to come up and you gotta have
6:42 pm
some authenticity to it's, there's a time to be ready to read. and then there's a time to be a sister who can make you laugh off. and that was very savvy of that. at the point that i were enjoying our time with angela johnson, she's currently out on the road. she's released for comedy specials, working on her 5th. that impresses me because a lot of people have one and i'm very few have to you get out 4 or 5. you can tell that you're an adherent to the arts. after 14 years, she's currently on her. who do i think i am comedy to are and she's also released the book this year. apple named, who do i think i am, which will be released on march 15th. we'll come back. we'll talk about her starting off. i love the idea that she had there too. very savvy comes back for my last game as a writer, as a friend in l. a. and heads there at some point you just got to step through the star gate. it's never going to get easy to do, but you gotta move, you gotta move. we'll talk to angela john about making a move right up to this on dennis miller plus one
6:43 pm
the. * inertia stories, even the news was knowing, can overwhelm the news. you can even lose your way. i know you wanted to let me bring you the best in. it's easy. just press play. oh no. oh oh. oh. really read turn on the tv in about the world and what's happening around me. i see she's on the screen
6:44 pm
speaker last every day because the fate lose narrative, petty sleep. a cold enough with bomb after barbara. barbara global is the make. you well have plenty of that in this war. what i found a network that or question more is rate cruise speed, civil strife, climate change a mainstream wants to do with keep was quiet. what still i can't keep with style is critical point for perspective. question more bizarre directly. we don't take walk, walk r t a mirror, a ah, our culture is a wash and lives dominated by streams of never ending electronic hallucinations.
6:45 pm
that birth fact fiction until they are indistinguishable. we have become the most eluded society under politics. it's a species of endless and meaningless. political viewed, or politicians have more into celebrity or to ruling parties are in reality one part of the corporate. and those will attempt to function this vast, restless universe of fake news designed to push through the pool team and exploitation of the neo liberal. important are for so far to the margins of society, including by a public broadcasting system that has sold is sold from corporate money. that we might as well be mice, squeaking against an avalanche suite. we must hey folks. welcome back. enjoying our time was fellow comedian angela johnson, 14 years at a currently on the road with her tour. and who do i think i am an a book the same
6:46 pm
name coming out on march 15th. i like the fact that you came back from doing what you thought knew was your last game. you took the job almost to feel, to get to grow comfortable with yourself, but then you've got more to give you, come back. and at some point, angela just does become about. all right, here we go. i gotta put my big boy big girl pants on here. go do this and you went down there, laid tell me about the beginning. so i tried out to be a reader. it simply because i, i wanted to be an actress like deep in my heart. i wanted to be an actress, but i knew nothing about it. and i had a friend who moved there and she got started doing commercials and music videos and things like that. she's like, if you come out here, i'll help you get started. so then it was like, oh wow, this could actually be a real thing. at the same time a friend was like, hey, you want to try out for the reader. it. and i was like, my thing, and then i think about that, you know,
6:47 pm
i'm going to use this as my sign. and if i make the squad, i will do it for one year. and then i'm going to move to hollywood and i'll pursue my dreams. i try it out by myself, went to this vision and opened there 700 girl. that does audition. i end up making the squad the moment that i made the squad. my 1st thought was not. oh my god, i'm going to be a true leader for the open raiders. my 1st thought was, oh my god, i'm going to be an actress. that's it. this is my sign. so i cheered that year we went to the super bowl that year with the best year to pick to be in. when readers cheerleader, 2000 to 2003, then came home from the super bowl packed up my car the very next weekend. i drove to l a. my friend kept her word, she helped me get started. i started an extra. i was an extra on friends for their season $9.10. you could still see me in the background. and that's how i started my career as an extra and i had, i remember having this full circle moment. i was filming a movie and alabama. and i'm at the gym at the hotel and i'm running on the
6:48 pm
treadmill and there's tv. and then i'm watching friends on, you know, p b s or whatever. and i see myself walking in the background. and i think emotional just thinking about it right now to think that i was on location building a movie as an actress where actually had speaking parts. i actually get to say things. and there i am starting this little dreamer girl who just walking in the background, who's like watching and learning from like lisa could draw. and jennifer allison and courtney cox. and i was just the young dream girl that was so happy to be in the background. i have nothing to say, but just watch. and then here i am building a movie like to come in real to just put faith in yourself and go for it. you know, you know, you speak up faith as i get older. i think i went away from phase for a long time because i was raised catholic and some of that didn't resonate with me . but as i get older and i can't make sense of things, i think i am
6:49 pm
a christian and i haven't had any road to damascus moment or there's an archangel might make a mirror or anything. but i do know i feel humbled. i do know i feel the need to go to a house of worship once a week and pray to somebody, you know and, and say thank you for the blessings i've had. and i think faith plays a big part in your life. correct? right. yeah, for sure. i mean, i grew up from like teenager or is on christian in to my adult years and i definitely have gone through a season of kind of like you like figuring out what do i believe i need to pray to something and like where you're like, i need to go to the church once a week. i've almost pulled away from going to the church one through week and kind of made it more of just my own. ready faith and my own journey with god and kind of like taking god out of the box that i've kept him in a religion and just being like so open minded to how big and
6:50 pm
lovely and beautiful god is and, and have so much appreciation for things. now, like everything from like fighters, like if i used to be a fighter in my hotel room, i was like, oh my god like kill it, masha, get it out a year. and now i like have like reverence for this fighter. and i'm like here, let me just throw you our side. and just like i feel like i've expanded, you know, when i say i go to the house of worship, i go with the so i have both worlds. when you talk about being alone, i go because i like how quiet it is in my, in an old factory sense that smell the influence and that reminds me of my youth. i never go when the ceremonies are not putting it down. but for me, i just like the solace. my mom has passed, i like talking to her and i know she'd be happy. i went to a church to do it. i just find things so complicated. and when i get older, people are always trying to figure things out. and i think, you know,
6:51 pm
i think the key for me as i get older, is to not figure as much out as to take some things as a matter of faith. and the just feel that there is some, i don't, i find great solace and that i love that. yeah, that's really special. where do you know you have such a nice conversation away by you? could one many ways you could have a rate or you could have been in a comedian, you could have been a shrink. i hope you're doing apologize because you have such a beautifully conversational way by yourself. have you dabbled and not at all? thank you. yes i do. i have a podcast that i do with my husband and a friend of ours, named brandon smith. it's called nights at the round table. my husband mental re is host it and we're part of it. and we talk about faith, love live, our deconstruction of all of those ideas and our reconstruction of what we think and believe. now, i have another broadcast called go stories with angela because i love hunted
