09-02-2018 12:00:00 10-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Adele Givens Headlines Gotham Comedy Club Adele Givens was crowned winner of the Crown Royal Comedy competition in Chicago in 1990. Givens has the rare ability to make you laugh, think, cry and cringe all at the same time! Popularity was swift with Adele winning many other competitions and securing the respect of comedy lovers everywhere. Almost immediately fans proclaimed Adele Givens the Queen of Comedy. The title is well deserved with such credits such as “Russell Simmons' Presents Def Comedy Jam,” “The All Stars of Def Comedy Jam,” “Showtime at the Apollo,” “The Oprah Winfrey show,” “HBO Comedy Half-Hour,” “Comedy Central Presents,” Queen Adele has certainly reigned supreme. It wasn't long before Queen Adele made her acting debut, guest-starring in such sitcoms as “Martin,” “Moesha,” “The Parkers,” “The Steve Harvey Show,” a recurring role on “The Tracey Ullman Show” and becoming a series regular on the hit sitcom “The Hughley’s” to name a few. Additionally, Adele branched out to do her very own morning radio show (The Adele Givens morning show on WGCI 107.5 FM Chicago), but not before filming her first movie role as Tricks in the film, “The Player’s Club.” Before long, HBO recognized her majesty by offering a chance to do her own HBO Half-hour comedy special and television pilot “The Adele Givens show.” Adele also served as co-host of the “Source Awards” pre-show. She wowed audiences everywhere on the very successful “Queens of Comedy” tour (13 consecutive sold out dates and the album was nominated for a Grammy Award), and made us laugh out loud as the hip hop loving, bad hair day having, DJ (I’Holla) Helen in the movie “Beauty Shop.” She is currently filming a movie she wrote and directed (The real extreme and confusing blaxploitation of ….SCANKHOSE.)
