The Web changed the way Black comedic talent is discovered. From the ascend of voices like Issa Rae and Francheca Ramsey, we can singlehandedly thank YouTube for giving us hilarious, real tales from women who completely understand our experiences—and look like us. But there’s a new funny lady in these Internet streets and we’re basically obsessed with her.

Enter Quinta Brunson, a new female comedienne who uses Vine, Instagram, YouTube and as of late, the massive platform of BuzzFeed, to build a following and to share random laugh-filled sketches on irritating siblings, dating interracially and just about everything else in between.

The Philly native is best known for her laugh out loud “Girl Who’s Never Been on a Nice Date” videos—for which she’s racked over two million total views and nearly 54,000 subscribers. And we can’t forget her catchphrase, “He got moneyyyyyyyyy!”

In an interview last year with Black Enterprise, Quinta B., says her siblings had her quoting Martin Lawrence and Jamie Foxx characters at the age of three. At 17, is when she realized being a comedienne is what she really wanted.

Taking improv classes is what helped Quinta comedy become viral sensations. She took a course at Second City Chicago where she learned how to implement certain things into her comedy routine.

“I learned how to react to others and how to support others. That’s what improv taught me,” she said. “’Yes, and…’ is the motto of improv and that will keep things moving in a scene. It’ll also keep things moving in life. Lastly, ‘Today is the Day,’ is another motto I learned. You always ask what your character is going to do that day that will make a change. I ask the same questions in my life as well. Improvisation also taught me that it’s okay to do what you feel.”

The concept for the hit “Girl Who’s Never Been on a Nice Date” started as an improvised character Quinta B. came up with for a routine at The Comedy Store. A friend suggested she put the character on social media and the rest is history.

We all remember when Saturday Night Live was catching all the criticism about it’s lack of diversity and not having Black female cast members. Quinta feels the problem wasn’t as bad as was being portrayed.

“People forget SNL presented one of the very first Black female sketch stars—Danitra Vance, Quinta said. “Saturday Night Live” seems like the kind of show that if you deserve to be there, you’ll be there and if you deserve to stay, you’ll stay.”

Our new favorite funny lady says the pressure on the long-time series wasn’t a good idea. “I’m not sure that the shotgun manhunt was the best way to go about hiring any new person this past season.”

Quinta continues, “I know a ton of Black female comedians creating their own work. People will see their work soon, and in my case, you’re seeing it now.”

The rising star’s advice for those looking to enter the entertainment industry is to create your own work on the Internet and get it out to the masses by any means necessary.

Also, be yourself, Quinta says, and tell the truth!
