Luenell Campbell (born March 12, 1959), known professionally as Luenell, is an American comedian and actress.

Life and career[edit]

She was born in Tollette, Arkansas, and uses only her first name. She is the youngest of eight children.[1] She was raised in Northern California and attended Castro Valley High School.[1] Luenell has one daughter, and lives in Los Angeles, California.

In the early 1990s Luenell appeared regularly on Soul Beat TV on the Oakland, California cable station KSBT, along with prominent Bay Area African-American journalist Chauncey Bailey, an interview and talk show host on the program.[2]

Luenell's two-year tour and DVD appearances in “Katt Williams American Hustle” have created an almost cult-like following.

In 2012 Luenell made appearances in three #1 feature films – Think Like A Man, the 3D animated hit Hotel Transylvania with Adam Sandler, and Taken 2 with Liam Neeson. She also co-starred in the comedy That’s My Boy with Adam Sandler and Leighton Meester.

Luenell's recent television appearances include episodes of The Middle and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia as well as stand-up appearances on “Snoop Dog’s Bad Girls of Comedy” on SHOWTIME and “Stand-up In Stilettos” on the TV Guide Network.
