A native of Dallas, Texas, before turning to writing novels, Hawkins first tried her hand at comedy with a $10 bet to tell a joke at Apollo Night at Steve Harvey’s Comedy House in Dallas, Texas. Not only did she tell a joke, but she got a standing ovation and an invitation to be a comedy club regular. Word spread about this funny lady, and soon, she found herself on a segment of the Jenny Jones Show as one of the comics to watch. P.R. Hawkins has performed at comedy clubs and college campuses throughout the United States and has been invited to perform at military bases in such exotic locations as Japan, Hawaii and Korea.
She was a semi-finalist in Comedy Central’s “Laugh Riot Competition” (2000) and the 2001 “Chesterfield Writing Competition.”
A prolific writer, P.R. Hawkins has penned the tremendously funny collaborations, Heavenly Bodies and Perfect Match as well as a country song titled I Like To Dream. She has written three feature films, Fabulous, Sistaahs, and Someone For Every One. The dramedy, Sistaahs, was optioned, turned into a short film and entered into the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Currently, P.R. Hawkins is still promoting her first novel, Ain’t Nothin’ Down About It and her second novel, Keeping Up with The Jonses, as she puts the finishing touches on her next project.
