Crystalle took a comedy class several years ago to overcome a fear of microphones, onset by a debilitating experience on a childhood talent show that left her crying for her mommy. Although she no longer fears microphones, she still confidently cries for her mommy after every show. #therapy She’s now hooked and her most recent accomplishment was being selected and participating in the SheDevil Comedy Festival in NYC. She’s opened for many well-established comedians and won quite a few comedy competitions – but none of that makes her funny…so you be the judge (but be gentle).
