As a Washington D.C. native, Dominique honed her skills unprofessionally as a postal worker at
the infamous Brentwood Postal facility. As a mail sorter and resident comic, Dominique kept the
night-shift alert, and amused while perfecting jokes. At the urging of coworkers and relatives,
Dominique sought stand-up work at local comedy clubs, which came easily after a few
performances. Dominique attracted diverse audiences with a mixture of political and cultural
comedy that made audiences think, and laugh.
She quickly gained notoriety for telling it like it is, raw and uncut. In a pre-internet world,
Dominique’s fan-base grew quickly and word of her talent drew attention from HBO’s “Def
Comedy Jam.” After a strong performance on Def Jam, Dominique pursued her comedic dreams
full-time, moving to New York City to perform amongst the best of the best. Before long,
Dominique became a fixture of New York’s comedy scene, performing alongside comics like
Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle. During a chance encounter at a small comedy club, Dominique
impressed “30 Rock” and “SNL” star Tracy Morgan, who immediately made Dominique the
opening act for his “Caroline’s on Broadway” show. Since then, Dominique has wowed
audiences from London to LA, and all points between.
In addition to stand-up and television, Dominique has drawn laughs from radio audiences across
America during a regular segment on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show.” From this platform
Dominique became known as the ‘people’s champ,’ a comedian who speaks for the common
man and woman of America.
