Anjelah has also guest starred on shows such as The Shield, Ugly Betty, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and others all while traveling with her stand up comedy.
In June 2009 Anjelah recorded her first one-hour special for Comedy Central and Warner Brothers Records titled That’s How We Do It. Her second one-hour special, The Homecoming Show, aired on NUVOtv in July of 2013 and is currently available on DVD.
Johnson has starred in such films as OUR FAMILY WEDDING, ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE SQUEAKQUEL, and ENOUGH SAID. The film MOM’S NIGHT OUT not only features Anjelah, but also her husband, musician Manwell Reyes of the band Group 1 Crew.
Anjelah resides in Los Angeles with her husband and continues to act and tour the country with her sold out comedy shows.
