Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie Tejada.

Stephanie, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and professionally.
I started in the entertainment industry as a model. My first paying official gig was a host for a local Manhattan TV show “Signature Hits” TV. I had the opportunity to interview some of the biggest stars. I continued to Model for easy money & actually became published in several magazines. I then relocated to Orlando, FL, Where I gogo danced for seven years of my life, wow! Just hearing it sounds crazy. I have done sooo many things in the industry but who I was naturally & what my passion was, was comedy. I would make skits & videos, doing impressions, singing parody songs & raps I made up, Making up characters just for fun. It was my comedy that opened the door for my role in the reality show, “The Bad Girls Club” on Oxygen Network. The season I was on was based on social media personalities. My social media niche was comedy. Even while filming the show I stuck to my comedy, doing a roast, improv class & skits. After the show, I moved to California to pursue my dream of being a comedic actress. I started my online fashion boutique, The Queen’s Closet, and moved to California on my Birthday 7/7/17. Since then, I took Pretty Funny Women comedy class & have been performing stand up every week for the past two years.

We’d love to hear more about your comedy career. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My biggest passion in life is making people laugh. I am sticking to stand up comedy because I honestly believe that’s God plan for me & I have fallen in love with it. I love making skits because it is 100% me & It’s an amazing way to express my thoughts & humor. What is so inspiring & what keeps me going is all the happiness and smiles comedy brings to people. I really believe that Laughter cures all. I get messages from people who tell me how my videos help them through depression or even suicide at times. Making skits or working on my stand up even helps me when I feel down. My creative inspiration comes from real life experiences, other peoples experiences, what’s going on in the news, pop culture or a good blunt can inspire me. I can’t explain everything, some of my comedy is just a thought I’d like to make a reality, whether through storytelling on stage or through a video on Instagram. All I hope people take away from my comedy is a laugh & that they feel better than when they heard my joke.

Have things improved for entertainers, artists and creative professionals? What should cities do to empower artists?
I feel like the entertainment industry, in general, has become over saturated. It’s a little easier because of the internet, you can connect with so many people & there are tons of blogs & influencers you can advertise your content through.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I do stand up comedy all over California, so please come support a show. Also, you can see me & my skits, characters, songs, weirdness on the internet, so the best place to stay updated is on Instagram @StephanieTejadaa
