Veda Howard was born with humor flowing through her veins. Initially clueless of this gift, she would often wonder why people were laughing at her when she was merely trying to communicate basic information. When a coworker approached her revealing she dreamed that Veda was on stage at a comedy club and the entire audience was laughing, she realized it was over her head. The coworker was unaware but, a few months prior, Veda was actually on stage for the first time at the exact comedy club mentioned in the dream. She embraced the inevitable, it was time to grab the mic and spread some joy. Since stepping to the microphone, she has been seen on Comcast Local Comedy On Demand, performed at comedy clubs, festivals, the One Love Gospel Cruise, the national Family Comedy Tour and various other events. Veda can currently be heard on Atlanta’s Inspiration Station, Praise 102.5 on Saturdays and Sundays from 3pm-7pm and delivering the Entertainment Report during the week.
In addition to her love of laughter, Veda is a voice actor and a gifted vocalist. She performed on Oprah Winfrey’s 2007 “My Favorite Things” episode with a gospel ensemble singing background for Warner Bros. recording artist, Josh Groban. She has worked in the music industry for over 15 years and has enjoyed producing events nationally and internationally featuring such artists as Stevie Wonder, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Natalie Cole, Brian McKnight, Yolanda Adams, the O’Jays, Take 6, Shirley Caesar, Usher and others.
Raised in southern New Jersey, Veda Howard is a graduate of Hampton University and currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
