Quick Q&A with Luelue Korrell:
Three words to describe Luelue, go! Reserved, outspoken, and cute!
Comedic style: I am versatile. I can be clean or dirty, raunchy or sarcastic. I imagine audiences’ get a kick out of me talking dirty because my physical appearance comes across as a clean, church girl.
Hecklers: The best way to deal with hecklers is to ignore them; otherwise hit them with a joke so hard the audience laughs and shuts the heckler down. She who has the mic has all the power.
Favorite comedians: Eddie Murphy, Bernie Mac, Joan Rivers, Bob Hope, Dean Martin, and Dave Chappelle.
Biggest inspiration: My son!
Best piece of advice you’ve ever received: Let go and let God! Pick your battles everything is not worth an argument.
Current projects: Working on my craft, and becoming a better comedian. Overall, working to become a better storyteller. In addition, working on producing comedy shows, including my annual “Sistahs in Spanx” comedy show, taking place in September. I am also looking forward to additional YouTube comedy skits this year.
In 10 years: I hope to see myself in movies, selling out tour dates, and breaking all of the top comedian records!
