Mugga, a Brooklyn native, is known for bringing a great sense of comedy to her dramatic roles. Her journey began at a young age where she studied acting with such instructors as Tracey Moore, Joanna Beckson, Paul Calderon, and more.
On a dare, she tried her hand at stand-up comedy. It didn't take long for her to catch the eye of Def Comedy Jam scout Bob Sumner. She quickly received a slew of high-profile stand-up gigs which gave her a big break onto the comedy scene. (These included DEF COMEDY JAM, SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO, BET'S COMIC VIEW 3X, and BBC'S CLUB CLASS.)
Receiving glowing reviews (including the New York Times), she soon went on tour with DEF JAM as well as COMEDY TROUPE SWG (a UK Based Comedy Troupe), SISTAHS WITH GAGS, etc. All of the Stand-Up comedy success gave her entertainment career a push to new heights and she was able to return to her acting endeavors.
Her love of acting and training soon paid off when she auditioned for Lee Daniels' Oscar winning film Precious and landed the role as the ever-memorable restaurant worker who Precious 'stole the chicken from'.
She continued to hone her craft while keeping active in the stand-up comedy world. It was then in the ground-breaking Netflix Original Series Orange Is The New Black that she landed her SAG-award winning role of Reema Pell. As her acting career skyrocketed, she took to the skies with a major recurring role on NBC's cult hit Manifest as Bethany Collins - the lovable attendant from that fateful flight.
Mugga continues to consistently book major roles in such high-profile TV shows as Bull, Power, Homeland, Blue Bloods, High Maintenance, and many more. She can also be seen on the big screen in Blumhouse' dystopian action franchise The First Purge!
As she continues to navigate the worlds of acting and comedy, she keeps her eye on the prize - ever keeping in mind her favorite quote, "The Best Is Yet To Come".
