Brandi Augustus

Blue Ridge Comedy Club's Pick a side Stupid Winner

Crowned King of Knoxville 2022 - Comedians in Drag Doing Comedy 

Born in Plainfield, New Jersey to a single mom with a history of addiction

and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she learned how to navigate life as a joke, Brandi takes all that she has experienced and transforms her trauma into

relatable stories that will have you laughing and reevaluating life. 

Now, Brandi Augustus is a not only a staple entertainer on the East Tennessee arts scenes but she is also a mother, advocate, activist, community leader, all around bad ass and radical truth teller.


Currently, she is the Radical Hospitality Coordinator at Highlander Research & Education Center, interim Co-Executive Director of the Appalachian Community Fund and is the President of the Advisory Board of Directors of The Bottom, a Black-woman led bookstore and community center that is located in the heart of East Knoxville. 

Brandi has recently opened for amazing comedians Holly Lynnea, Katherine Blanford, and Shelly Belly from Season 3 of Netflix's The Circle. During Brandi's second year of performing at the Second Bell festival she opened for Big Boi aka Daddy Fat Stakks. Needless to say, her price is going up!
