Originally from Washington D.C., Vanja is a Los Angeles-based standup comedian, actor, writer. . .and one-time rapper. Yep. That happened, too. She has most recently performed at the World Famous Comedy Store as part of an Emerging Comics Showcase and in just a short period of time has emerged as one of the area's most sought-after new comics. With her diverse background (she's of Korean, African-American and Native-American heritage. . .but, who isn't?) she has a fresh, offbeat, and oddly enough instantly relate-able take on life that her audiences connect with.
Come and join us for late night with LA's biggest Headliners.
