Laura Hayes

A former felon determined to get off the streets and make something of herself, at times it seems Hayes succeeded out of sheer will. But her immense talent as a stand-up comedian didn't hurt, either. Hayes rounds out the Queens of Comedy lineup and has done her thing as co-host of BET's Comic View and currently stars on Meet the Browns.
