(Chicago, IL) May 9, 2023 Being heralded as the female Bernie Mac, @mycousin_tiera is Chicago's secret sauce. Her humor is hot, her stories are spicy. She's one of the midwest's funniest female comedians in a long time. Since 2017, @mycousin_tiera has been quietly making a name for herself on social media and in comedy clubs. Born and raised on the west side of Chicago, this funny mama tells no lies. She is bold, unapologetic and extremely witty.


Her signature skits "Black Moms be Like" has been getting rave reviews on social media. To date, the franchise has garnered over 7.5 million views on Instagram and 2.5 million views on TikTok. A mother herself, @mycousin_tiera has been honing her craft for several years. She got her start doing standup in Chicago at the popular Bar 10 Doors. Since then, she has managed to make people laugh out loud in venues across the country.


Endorsed by a number of comedic greats including Chicago legend Diane Corder @mycousin_tiera and has amassed a large cult-like following in a short period of time even catching the eyes of some local and national celebrities. Just fresh off the set of the film Comedy Lights the Dark produced by filmmaker Dorian Myrickes, @mycousin_tiera is sweeping the nation by storm.


@mycousin_tiera has performed in front of sold out crowds in D.C. New Orleans, Atlanta, Cleveland, Fort Lauderdale and of course here in the Windy City. Her production company F.A.T. Laughs Entertainment is currently producing a podcast with Madtactics Technology & Media & Chi-City Films.


@mycousin_tiera is a breath of fresh air and truly a talent we've all been waiting for. She's Chicago's best kept secret ... but not for long as she will be heading out on a multi-city tour this spring with stops in Richmond, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn. But before she heads out, she will be in and around town loving on her city and the people that mean the most to her.
