HOPE FLOOD is one of the fastest rising "Keeping It Real" female comedians on the Laff circuit today. Her appeal is universal due to the everyday life experiences she talks about; whether it's male/female relationships, love, lust, motherhood, or just surviving in the "New Millennium."
Her thought provoking political and spiritual commentary keeps audiences on the edge of their seats thirsting for more.
A God fearing, Single Mother, Comedian, Actor, Philanthropist, Publisher (of the first nationally distributed comedy magazine called "COMEDY THE MAGAZINE"), and more recently On-Air Radio Personality.
Hope has been in the business for over 20 years and has produced weekly showcases that helped launch the careers of many successful comedians from Jamie Foxx to Chris Tucker. She's also been featured in the best selling comedy book and album entitled "SNAPS," and has headlined some of the most well known comedy clubs in the world.
A semi-finalist in the "OLD ENGLISH 800 WOMEN'S COMEDY CRUNCH", and a two time semi-finalist in the "BAY AREA BLACK COMEDY COMPETITION" are just some of the accomplishments of this multi-talented artist. Her talent has taken her on a European Comedy tour, including the U.S. Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Jamaica and even Alaska.
After years of being on the road Hope relocated to Dallas, TX to try her talent on radio, (after being handpicked by BJ Murphy the top morning show DJ in Charlotte), as a side kick on his show called, "BJ IN THE MORNING on 105.7 KRNB." She took the city by surprise with her "Out of the Box" jokes and unconventional views, and the ratings went from a .09 to a 2.4 in less than two years.
Appearances on "RUSSELL SIMMON'S, HBO ALL STAR DEF COMEDY JAM," ten seasons of "BET'S COMICVIEW," where she won her own one hour “Grandstand Comedy Jam Special.” Hope was later picked as one of BET'S 39 most favorite comics. "COMEDY CENTRAL'S COMIC GROOVE" hosted by Tracey Morgan, the late night series "COMIC'S UNLEASHED" with Byron Allen and was one of only two female comedians in the country picked for the 2009 season of "MARTIN LAWRENCE PRESENTS: THE 1ST AMENDMENT STAND-UP" on the Starz cable network hosted by Doug Williams.
Hope is no stranger to the stage or the big screen having performed in the NAACP Award nominated play "CULTURE SHOCK," the "KEN SAGOES & FRIENDS VARIETY SHOW," and John Singleton's "BABY BOY" is just starters.
Even though HOPE is a rising star, she will never allow success to prevent her from reaching back. She is an "AMICAE"(friends of Zeta), an auxiliary organization of "ZETA PHI BETA SORORITY INC." "A NICKEL OF HOPE INC." is her own non-profit organization which features "HOPE'S GIRLZ CLUB" an after-school mentoring program for at-risk girls in the inner city.
A woman in complete control is the best way to describe her. When it comes to style, class and talent, she's definitely in a league of her own giving it her all to make her HOPES a reality!
