Burpie Presents: Comedians You Should Know, Taneshia “Just Nesh” Rice
The first time I ever saw Nesh perform was in Charlotte at the comedy zone, she was opening for Deray Davis and I thought she was the funniest person on the stage that night. That’s not a knock against anyone else , but everyone knows Deray and what he can bring to the stage, people in Charlotte at the time didn’t know who Nesh was but when she got off of the stage they definitely knew who she was. A Chicago native, she is one of the most honest people on stage that I have ever seen. She’s not afraid to tell the joke that everyone else is afraid to talk about.
She’s definitely a star in the making and can be one of the new leaders of black female comedians that can take female comedy to another level. If you’ve never seen her perform before then you need to catch her whenever she comes to your city, I guarantee you there will be people on the floor crying laughing.
