Born and raised in San Jose, California, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes kickstarted her career as a professional cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders. After being named “Rookie of the Year” and performing in Super Bowl XXXVII, Reyes moved to Los Angeles where she became an internet sensation with her viral video “Nail Salon,” which led to many stand-up, television and film opportunities. That same year, she joined the cast of “MADtv” as a series regular, which spawned another internet sensation, “Bon Qui Qui.” This original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, has been enjoyed, viewed and replicated by more than 65 million people worldwide.
In June 2009, Reyes recorded her first one-hour comedy special for Comedy Central and Warner Bros.

In 2017, she filmed her fourth special, “Mahalo & Goodnight,” in Honolulu. It premiered on the Epix Channel and is now available for streaming on Hulu.
Reyes also holds a record deal with Warner Bros. Records where she released a full album titled “Gold Plated Dreams,” which she’s toured twice, selling out both times. She later released a Christmas EP titled “Merry Hoodmas.” Reyes has also appeared in multiple ads and commercials, including campaigns for Sprint, Visa, Snickers, Verizon, All-State, K-Swiss and Dryers Ice Cream and was the spokesperson for the Texas-based restaurant chain Taco Cabana. She has guest starred on shows like “The Shield,” “Ugly Betty,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and others.
