Katrina Pope

Born and raised in Jackson, MI, Katrina Pope moved to Atlanta the summer of 1996, started putting her vision of becoming a comedian together on February 18, 2010, when she woke up to an epiphany. “I want to be a comedian!”  She immediately started to follow her dreams. The road to where she is known wasn’t easy but she’s remained determined, aggressive and humble the entire way.

A self-proclaimed “professional student,” she has worked various jobs throughout her life, to include being in the Military for 10 years, Paralegal, Esthetician, and Bartender.  Never being able to find excitement in Corporate America, coupled with being fired for her “attitude not being conducive to the work environment” she started bartending. Bartending allowed her to develop her alter ego “Kspot”. Her flexible schedule of bartending 3 days a week allowed Katrina to attend St. Leo University and finally graduate in June 2009 with a BA in Criminal Justice. She later decided to take the LSAT in hopes of becoming a criminal defense attorney, yet quickly learned a score of 125 was more like her ideal weight than an competitive score to attend law school.

Already known for her “Brutally Honest” attitude, Katrina quickly familiarized herself with the stage. Katrina Pope started her comedy career in Montgomery AL, opening up for the nationally respected comedian Doug Williams on April 9, 2010. Despite the microphone malfunctions and colorful language, Katrina, was able to make the crowd laugh and look good while doing it. After her first show, she developed her tagline “I just look like this” after getting several sideways compliments from the crowd on her looks. “I just look like this” let everybody know that even though she’s cute and prissy, she’s been through some trials in her life and she’s able to relate to all women.

In less than 6 months, Katrina has performed for a sold out crowd in her hometown of Jackson, MI, along with gracing the stage at Uptown Comedy Club, Hard Rock (Orlando, FL), J. Spot Comedy Club (Los Angeles, CA), Bonkerz (Mobile, AL & Alpharetta, GA), Comedy House (Columbia, SC) Back Stage, Miami Improv, West Palm Improv, Laugh Lounge, in New York, Moca lounge in Harlem, NY, and hosting her own comedy room and New Year Eve’s Party at the legendary Justin’s Restaurant.

In the last year, Katrina has crossed over to film and television, as a police officer in the number #1 movie in the Country, “Ride Along “ starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. In addition to feature films, she is the only female comedian in the web series “Talking Shop” with Shaquille O’Neal, Capone, Rodney Perry and Lavar Walker. When Katrina is not on the road gracing stages, she hosts a weekly comedy show called “No Judgment Sundays" in Tucker, GA.
