In the short time she’s been doing stand-up, Jialu has performed on various stages and shows across the city such as Yas Kween, So Fresh n So Clean, and SHADE. She also recently started producing and hosting her own stand-up show called What Are You Doing After You Graduate?: A Comedy Show. which sold out its first two shows in Toronto and Kingston.
