Chonda Pierce

Mar 04, 1960

Chonda Pierce (born in South Carolina) is a Christian comedienne often billed as "The Queen of Clean." Pierce got her start in comedy during a six-year stint at a theme park in Nashville, Tennessee called Opryland USA. A Theater Arts major from Austin Peay State University, Pierce went to the park to pay her college bill. Not knowing how to dance, she had to memorize jokes from Grinders Switch, Tennessee and impersonate Cousin Minnie Pearl. Having had a troubled childhood, entertainment was the catharsis Pierce needed, reporting "I was hooked! I loved the sound of an audience laughing. It was just the medicine I needed."

Pierce has gone on to appear numerous times on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, write eight books, and become a highly sought after Christian comedienne, having five gold-certified comedy albums and two platinum albums to her name. Pierce has an ongoing concert calendar and her comedy segments also frequently appear on XM Radio's Laugh USA and Sirius Satellite Radio's Blue Collar Comedy 103.

Pierce is a member of the Christian Comedy Association, but outside the comedy, she is a spokesperson for World Vision and works with various other Christian leaders and organizations. She has appeared in several of the Gaither Homecoming recordings and she wrote about her struggle with depression in "Laughing in the Dark: A Comedian's Journey Through Depression"

Pierce was named Comedian of the Year two years in a row by the Christian Music Hall of Fame's Visionary Awards while hosting the 2009 awards show.
