Laughter is Healing…My Purpose My Passion
LaQuitcha (La’Kēēsha) Lanay Washington, a native of Charleston, SC, has been making people laugh all her life. She was raised in a Christian home, and was taught the foundational doctrines of the Pentecostal Belief.
The Bible tells us to train a child in the way they shall go, and when they are old they will not depart from it. Well, the teachings LaQuitcha received were not in vain. After years of running from her true calling, she accepted the fact that God had both a purpose and a plan for her life that would glorify Him. Proverbs 17:22 tells us; “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
Lady Q answered “the call” and emerged as a true performer after accepting an invitation to perform a “One Woman Show” in 2008. Lady Q changes the atmosphere, by displaying the humor she recognizes in all people and situations.
Since that time, Lady Q has been awarded the PrazyeFactor People’s Choice Awards in 2014, and 2018, for Best Christian Comedian! She was an Honoree for the Community Service Award, given by the Gospels Choice Awards in July of 2019. Lady Q has opened for Comedians such as, Rodney Perry, Marcus D. Wiley, Small Fry, and has performed with Bruce Bruce. Lady Q travels far and abroad to many venues, including Jamaica and Bahamas to share her God-given talent to people of all ages, and backgrounds.
Lady Q is the mother of two young adults, Jasmine and Derrick, whom she adores, and supports her in her journey of making people laugh. Lady Q now resides in Atlanta, GA, where she is well-known and respected by her community. Lady Q is regarded as one of the most sought-after clean comedians today; and her goal is to travel the world, to make people laugh and restore their joy!
