Crystal Powell: Profession
After moving to Los Angeles, Crystal put all her energy and focus on one thing, her career. With no godfather or back-support, Crystal’s agent motivated her to give Improv comedy a shot and she is grateful for the fact that she auditioned for the spot, instead of wallowing in grief and emptiness after the passing of her parents.
Since her foray into the male-dominated world of comedy, Crystal hasn’t looked back. She has performed at various packed locations, namely L.A’s Laugh Factory, the San Diego Civic Center, the Laugh Out Loud comedy festival 2018, and the Improv Comedy Clubs at Los Angeles, Ontario, Palm Beach, Arlington, and Houston.
Not just that, in 2015, the mayor of Houston announced September 18 as “Crystal Powell ‘Laughter Heals’ Day” to honor Crystal’s contribution to the field of comedy. Out of hundreds of comics, Crystal was the only comedienne to represent Texas on Comedy Central’s ‘Hart of the City’ in 2016. In the following year, Crystal became the only comedian to perform live during Super Bowl Live.
She has also appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ and has given interviews to FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, The CW, ‘Sister Circle’, and ‘Sway in the Morning.’ Crystal is a singer and actor, known for her work in ‘My B.F.F.,’ ‘Ball Don’t Lie,’ and the latest ‘#2MinutesofFame’ among others. She is currently the host of the podcast ‘Coffee with Crystal’ and a guest host on the Fox show ‘Dish Nation.’
Crystal Powell Prediction: How Far Will She Go?
Comedy to Crystal is a form of healing. Her personality transforms once she steps on the stage and blends her day-to-day experiences, anecdotes, current topics, and even grief to form a delectable concoction of comedy, that will have the judges crying from laughter.
The fact that she is already an established name in the world of comedy might also work in her favor if she manages to tickle everyone to move further into the competition. With her comedic prowess and confidence, Crystal is sure to make a huge impact and has every chance to grab the win!
