4 Years in Comedy

In Chloe’s backstory segment we learned she was raised in a Hasidic Jewish neighborhood and loves the smell of fresh challah. For ten years Chloe has been writing for The Village Voice, Essence, Vibe, King and The Source. She’s appeared all over television for her expertise on Hip Hop culture, and recently made her tv debut on “Gotham Comedy Live.” Chloe has also worked as a warm up comic for CBS, MSNBC and VH1.

Heard during her LCS set:  “I grew up in a Jewish neighborhood.  I actually thought I was Jewish until I turned 13 and did not have a bat mitzvah.  I was so excited I went up to my mom and said I’m about to become a woman.  She’s like Chloe, we’re black.  Mom, how dare you.  This is the worst Channukah ever.”

What the judges said:  Roseanne:  “It was just hilarious.”  Keenan:  “You were poised and commanded the room.”  Russell: “You’ve got the confidence of someone whose being doing this a lot longer.”
