Loni Love: ‘Funny Business’

‘The Real’ co-host laughs it up

Question: When and why did you start doing stand-up?

Answer: I originally started in college because I needed some money. [laughs] There was a comedy contest, and it was $50 for the best story. I got up on stage and made up some silly story, and I won the $50.

Once I got my degree in electrical engineering, I ended up getting a job in Los Angeles. I worked for Xerox. While there I started doing stand-up again because I really wasn’t pleased with working nine to five. I worked all day, then did stand-up again at night.

Q: How did you become a full-time stand-up?
