- What jumpstarted Anjelah’s YouTube following: her outlandish and cartoonish characterization of a Vietnamese nail-salon employee
- Thanks to the popularity of those clips: Anjelah made the leap from YouTube to the real tube on MADtv
- Her trademark character on MADtv: Bon Qui Qui, the loud, rude, and crude fast food employee who haunts customers’ nightmares
- Bon Qui Qui’s catchphrase: “I’m a cut you!”
- Where you’ve seen Bon Qui Qui since MADtv ended: racking up views on Anjelah’s YouTube channel and in a recent skit for Alexander Wang
- What Anjelah did before she was a comedian (that no other comedian can claim): she was the Rookie of the Year cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders, and performed at Super Bowl XXXVII
- What to expect from her live show: observational wit punctuated by appearances from her favorite alter-egos (especially Bon Qui Qui)
Warner Theatre serves as profound evidence that grassroots efforts can make a difference in the arts. Opened by Warner Brothers Studios in 1931, the Thomas Lamb–designed cinema house served for more than 20 years as the area’s top venue to gawk at the silver screen. Yet business declined with the rise of the television, and in 1955 a flood left the venue severely damaged. It was hardly a surprise, then, when the Warner faced foreclosure in 1981. But a non-profit, citizen-run group called the Northwest Connecticut Association for the Arts raised the $275,000 needed to rescue the theatre, and repaired the years’ damages to the art-deco design. Today, more than 800 volunteer actors, musicians, designers, and crew members bask in the applause and gleefully thrown lorgnettes of an estimated 35,000-plus patrons each season.
