Fierce Funny & Fly - Black Girl Giggles comedy festival logo image


Fierce Funny & Fly is a documentary that follows a group of women, who join forces to host a comedy festival which highlights the diverse voices of Black female comics, who are too often overlooked by the mainstream.

Featuring interviews and performances from some of New Orleans funniest women, this documentary provides a glimpse into the future of comedy.



 JP Noel has an eye for film, an ear for music and a penchant for a good time. His directorial debut, Hands to The Sky, turned the lens on House Music outdoor events, a genre close to his heart. As a native New Yorker with a life long fascination for New Orleans, this project found him by chance on his first trip to the Big Easy after meeting local comedian Geneva Joy.

Among the many hats he wears, the brightest is the one of a dedicated father. His tight-knit Panamanian family keeps him grounded and ambitious. 


Co-Director, Executive Producer

Wendy Arimah is an artist by nature with crazy range: she has played a 14 year-old Mexican boy and a 70 year-old Southern matriarch. She was the literary producer on Hands to The Sky, the Poet Laureate for DTLA Magazine (two consecutive years) and is published by Rubin Publishing. Her costume designs were nominated by Backstage West and if you blink, you might miss her giving good face in a Seinfeld episode.

She believes that perfection lies in the moment and is a lover of most things orange.
