If you caught Anjelah Johnson on the 13th season of MADtv, you probably saw her character Bon Qui Qui, one of the more memorable creations of the show’s 14-season run. Bon Qui Qui also became a YouTube sensation, with an unofficial video racking up over 54 million views. (For context: That’s 20 million fewer than KONY 2012 but 10 million more than Winning—a song by Charlie Sheen.)
Johnson began her career in entertainment as a cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders (where she won Rookie of the Year honors) before finding success in comedy; post-MADtv she has appeared in films and tours frequently as a standup comedian. Johnson identifies herself as of Mexican and Native American descent in her biography, although to our knowledge she has not given her tribal affiliation.
After a couple of years out of the spotlight, Bon Qui Qui is back, and she isn’t working at King Burger (“…where we can do it your way, but don’t get crazy”) anymore. She has recorded a single, “I’m a Cut You,” and it’s pretty much the kind of single Bon Qui Qui would record. Enjoy it—and the famous original Bon Qui Qui sketch from MADtv—below:
