Mimi J Benfield, also known at the "Gay of Sunshine," is a comedian based in Charlotte that has been performing since 2012.
She was a semi-finalist on "Stand-Up NBC" in 2018 & you may see her on the next season of "America's Got Talent."
She's always travelling to make strangers laugh & has performed all over from Florida to Toronto, Washington, D.C. to Las Vegas and even all the way to Maui.
She's shared mics with comedy greats such as, Margaret Cho, Carlos Mencia, Chris Kattan and Jen Kirkman.
She was the taco in the "Sausage Taco Comedy Tour" of 2015 and embarked on Pride Tours since 2016.
She proudly produces a weekly mic in Charlotte, NC at Crown Station every Wednesday aptly named, "Nonconsensual Comedy."
Creepy Creeperton was born from Mimi's dead grandfather's fashion choices, her love of John Waters & creepy pick-up lines.
He has performed at many events, including burlesque, drag, & self-help seminars (seriously), even though he was originally meant to be a silly Halloween costume.
His goal is to bring back the art of the pick-up line & he also started the #MenToo movement....because maybe men want to know what it feels like to be uncomfortable in a public setting too.
Mimi started a show called "Laugh Ink" which is the first show of it's kind!
She was the first comedian to get tattooed while performing on stage in 2017.
