Born in Providence, RI raised in Atlanta, GA; Aminah Imani is a stand up comedian who resides in New York City. In simple words, she is funny. Her career was triggered by an incident on the DC metro after speaking of her aspirations to be a comedian, when a random local challenged her demanding, “Show me some funny!”

Highlights includes her performance at her alma mater, Howard University’s Homecoming Comedy Show in 2009, she was a semi finalist in the 2012 Miller Lite Stand Up Competition, and was featured on 2013 Essence’s girlfriend adventures web series. Aminah currently produces her own podcast, Wine Before Nine, available on sound cloud.
