Hey there, alright, let’s do this! It’s time to meet a comedian whose jokes I think you’ll really enjoy. This week’s funny human is Lashonda Lester, an Austin-based standup comic who is among the very stacked and awesome list of comedians who will be taping Comedy Central half hour specials this year, which features many folks we’ve talked about in this very column! She’s appeared on Nickelodeon’s NickMom Night Out and Laughs on Fox, and recently won the 2016 edition of the long-running Funniest Person in Austin competition. Let’s watch her winning set to get acquainted!
