Meet Garihanna Jean-Louis, the first black woman to graduate from Quebec's school for comedians.

"I know three black women doing humour in Quebec: Dorothy Rhau, me and my sister," Jean-Louis said during an interview with National Observer. "Working hard is ok, but me, I have to work twice as hard to get half as much because not only am I a woman but I am a black woman."
