Candice Thompson is a comedian/writer/actor that was born in Queens, raised in Cincinnati, and currently resides in Los Angeles. She is the perfect mix of both East and West coasts with just the wrong amount of Midwest street cred. Candice comes from an ethnically mixed family with both of her parents being of African-American and Native American descent and one day hopes to parlay her racial ambiguity into huge action roles like Dwayne Johnson did.
Candice is a paid regular at The Comedy Store in Hollywood. You may have seen her on THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON, THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT and Comedy Central’s THE NEW NEGROES. She was also on NBC’s BRING THE FUNNY & LAST COMIC STANDING as well as correspondent on E! network’s THE COMMENT SECTION. You can hear her every week on her podcast THE STRUGGLE, and in the comedic YouTube sketch series she co-created, CREEPY CARESS.
Candice’s comedy has often made people squirm in their seats and most recently, has gotten her ejected from a wedding, but it’s her edgy vs. adorable factor that keeps crowds begging for more. Candice wants to thank her friends and family for all their support, but most of all she wants to thank God for making her better than everybody.
