Cotton is a Tufts University alumna who effortlessly fuses humor with controversy and is one of the most sought-after emerging comedians hailing from Boston, MA.

Cotton became a stand-up comedian in 2015 to cope with the loss of her younger brother Javonee. In honor of his memory, Cotton founded the Javonee Cotton Scholarship for Comedic Excellence. She made her comedy festival debut in 2016 and made her television debut in 2017 on Comedy Central's Hart of the City with Kevin Hart. She made her international stand-up debut as a finalist in the 2018 Hong Kong International Comedy Festival and was chosen as a Rising Star in the 2019 North Hollywood Comedy Festival.

Cotton's original comedy album recording debut "Pitbull Pride" was scheduled to take place at the Rozzie Square Theater in front of a live audience on Saturday, March 28th 2020. However, like much of the world, a global pandemic derailed those plans. Since that time, Cotton has amassed well over 15.2K followers, 107.5K likes, and 939.1K views on the social media platform TikTok alone. In lieu of touring, Cotton's increasingly popular online presence has opened up new opportunities, such as sponsorships and passive content creator income, thanks to her hard work and dedication to her craft.

Cotton produces a live stand-up series called Comics Rising; which delivers curated entertainment in celebration of empowering movements throughout her city and beyond. You can learn more about her journey on WCVB's CityLine 5 or read more about her work in The Boston Globe.

Details regarding a new time & location for Cotton's rescheduled debut comedy album to be announced on November 10, 2020.
