Brooklyn Jones grew up in Brooklyn, New York. With a singer for a mom, a songwriter for a grandfather and a playwright for a grandmother, she always knew she would be in the entertainment field. A two time winner on BET’s 106th & Park, she initially started out as a rapper performing all over the underground scene. Even in her lyrics you could not deny her comedic edge as many times people would crack up and point out the funny lyrics as she rapped. Growing up in public school she was always the class clown and was told all through life that she should be a comedian.
In 2013, she finally listened to all of the voices in her ear and tried stand up, loved it and has had a passion for comedy ever since. Being sure not to abandon her musical roots, she has incorporated music and hip hop into her comedy by doing parodies such as her Beyonce and Jay Z “Drunk In Love” parody “Chunky Love” which has reached over 500,000 views and counting, and her most recent Iggy Azalea “Fancy” parody entitled “Lazy” which is following in the footsteps of “Chunky Love” with over 30,000 views.
Brooklyn has been honing her comedic skills performing all over the New York City area and headlined her first show at New York Comedy Club in 2013. She recently relocated to California and decided to bring her New York flavor to the West Coast. She is on the right track as she performed at the legendary Comedy Store for Red Grant’s Turnt Up Tuesdays, was named one of California’s Funniest Female Comedians at Ice House Comedy Club and was named “Best of The Fest” at Flappers’ Burbank Comedy Festival.
In 2016 Brooklyn became a recurring guest star on the Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Flex & Shanice” show. Most recently you could find her on stage at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion performing in the LA Opera production of Salome. Brooklyn is now working on putting more skills in her toolbox while currently studying improv at Upright Citizens Brigade and Sketch Comedy at The Nerdist School. Aside from acting in short films and sketches, you can catch her on season 2 of "The Comedy Underground Series" on UMC (The Urban Movie Channel).
