One area REVOLT is drawing attention to is the comedy scene. REVOLT TV would like to introduce you to 20 young, rising comedians who are determined to stamp their names on the list of legendary comic acts with our new comedy show, "Funny AF." Past comedians who have taken the REVOLT Studios stage have been Keysha E., Heather Jay, Victor Pope Jr., Jonnae Thompson and so much more. But, today, we'd like to present Chino Hills, California's finest; Kia "Seoul" Riley. The comedian is all about female empowerment and positivity, using her life experiences and love for hip hop as a means to tell her jokes.
She exclusively told REVOLT TV, "I've always been told [that] I was funny and my boss pushed me to take a leap [of faith]. I received [a few pointers] from a major producer and ran with it. [For me], it's all about telling a relatable story. Life is funny when you look at it through an optimistic and humorous lens."
At a young age, Riley realized that laughter was the cure for everything. She continued to say, "I strive everyday to have a positive impact on the world because I feel like that's my purpose. Before, I thought my purpose was music. Today, it's comedy [and] who knows? In the future, it may be writing books... The legacy I choose to spread and leave is [that] we are all humans. Let's be cool to each other and pursue our passions."
