BORN OLAKUNLE OLATOKUNBO EMMANUEL JAMAL OLOMO JR. I KNOW A LOT OF NAMES RIGHT (HENCE ‘JUST OLA’) LOL ON JULY 20 1985. GREW UP IN BEDSTUY BROOKLYN. I STARTED DOING COMEDY WHILE IN COLLEGE IN 2005 AFTER A CHANCE MEETING WITH SOMEONE WHO WOULD BECOME MY MENTOR, FRIEND AND BROTHER, COMEDIAN FRANTZ CASSEUS. THROUGH HIS TUTELAGE AND ADVICE I BEGAN MY JOURNEY INTO COMEDY. HOWEVER THREE YEARS INTO THAT JOURNEY I STOPPED PERFORMING ON STAGE. AFTER GRADUATING FROM COLLEGE I MOVED TO THE STATE OF MARYLAND. I WAS OUT THERE FOR 10 YEARS JUST LIVING LIFE BUT THE LOVE FOR COMEDY NEVER LEFT ME. I NEVER STOPPED WRITING MATERIAL. I HAVE YEARS WORTH OF JOKES JUST SITTING THERE NEVER TO BE HEARD. THERE WERE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE FROM FAMILY, FRIENDS AND EVEN STRANGERS THAT WOULD CONSTANTLY TELL ME THAT I NEED TO DO COMEDY. A FEW YEARS AGO I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH MY YOUNGER BROTHER AND AFTER THAT CONVO I MADE THE DECISION TO GO BACK INTO COMEDY. THEN THE PANDEMIC HAPPENED AND EVERYTHING SHUT DOWN, HOWEVER I USED THAT TIME TO RESET MOVE BACK TO NEW YORK, WRITE AND WAITED PATIENTLY FOR THINGS TO OPEN BACK UP. I AM NOW ALL IN WITH COMEDY NEVER TO STOP AGAIN. NOW THAT COMEDY IS BACK IT IS TIME FOR THE WORLD TO KNOW WHO I AM. MY TIME IS NOW. I AM JUST OLA.
