Comedian Chonda Pierce: A Southern Woman In Comedy

Chonda Pierce is a Covington, Kentucky-born comedian who's best known for keeping her standup clean and incredibly Southern. "There's a culture in the South, especially since I've been in the South all my life, where Southern women want to be ladies." In the comedy world, as Chonda says, "it's not always easy to be a lady." Billed as the Queen of Clean Comedy, Chonda has learned how to navigate an incredibly tricky, often dirty industry by sticking to her Southern values. "Sometimes the dirtiest ones are the women." She also jokes, "Plus, I remember the taste of Ivory Soap – that's another thing you learn in the South. You never forget that!" Join Chonda as she talks about her personal faith, how growing up in the Bible Belt has affected her stand-up, and how she's upholding the standard for being a strong, Southern woman in both the comedy industry and in her own home.
