We’re excited to announce stand-up comedian, actress, and writer, Zainab Johnson will host the annual MMA Global SMARTIES Awards this year at POSSIBLE. Zainab was named as one of Variety‘s 2019 “10 Comics to Watch” and can be seen starring in Greg Daniels’s Amazon series, UPLOAD,and recently made her debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Zainab was also recently featured in the LA Times as female African-American comedian to watch, alongside Tiffany Haddish and Issa Rae.
Zainab’s comedy is based on her unique point-of-view, which was shaped growing up in Harlem as one of thirteen siblings in a Muslim family. After getting a degree in math and taking a job as a teacher, she quickly learned that she had a different calling.
MMA Global SMARTIES Awards is the world’s first marketing award recognizing outstanding innovation resulting in significant business impact for brands, agencies, media companies, and solution providers. Awards are given for 25+ innovative categories for both Smarties X Global and North America submissions. The celebration will be held on Tuesday, April 18th at POSSIBLE!
