Reece 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 as a means to cope with the loss of her younger brother and founded the Javonee Cotton Scholarship for Comedic Excellence in honor of his memory. She made her television stand-up debut on season two of Comedy Central's Hart of the City with Kevin Hart. She made her international stand-up debut at the 2018 Hong Kong International Comedy Festival and was selected as a Rising Star in the 2019 North Hollywood Comedy Festival. Cotton produces a live stand-up series called Comics Rising; which delivers curated entertainment in celebration of empowering movements throughout her city and beyond.

Cotton's debut comedy album recording is being held at a theater near you in 2020.
