Queen Of Comedy Adele Givens Reveals Why She Almost Quit Stand-Up!

Posted Nov 30, 2010

We just had one of those heart-to-heart chats with none other than one of  Queens Of Comedy, Ms. Adele Givens, and we are very glad to have her back in the comedy arena.

What many of you probably didn’t know is Adele had stopped from doing comedy- and she even contemplated never performing on stage again.

Many of us in life hit speed bumps in our travels, but Adele not only hit the “bumps” so to speak, her travels had derailed her from doing her day job and that was doing stand-up.

What would make a comedian of her level on the rise in Hollywood with a sitcom on the table, a new comedy stand up film (The Queens Of Comedy) and tons of cities every year want to stop? Well, family.

What you also didn’t know is that Adele was battling TWO life threatening things with her family members; one was her Husband and the other was her sister. Both were fighting for their lives. Her husband needed an organ transplant and her sister had a serious form of cancer.

We are very happy to report that not only did her Husband get the transplant that he needed, but her sister also pulled through!

So, now with all of those things in her immediate past, Adele stated to us that she is gearing up for a new chapter in her comedy career as she is planning on getting back on the stage and making her stories known about her past- all in a comedic way.

Up next for Adele is a New Year’s Eve comedy show in Chicago at the Aries Theater with D.L. Hughley, Bill Bellamy and Nephew Tommy. Plus we hear that she is going to start a couple of comedy shows once a month in her home town and several other surprises.

Stay tuned for more!
