Quinta Brunson age

Quinta Brunson was born on December 21, 1989. She celebrated her 34th birthday in 2023. Brunson was born and raised in West Philadelphia.

Her name means “fifth” in Spanish and signifies that she is youngest of five children.

Quinta Brunson parents and siblings

She is the daughter of Rick and Norma Jean Brunson, and she grew up in a Jehovah’s Witness household with older siblings Kalid, Nija (better known as Jia), Kiyana, and Kwei.

In her book, Quinta referred to her mother as a “dedicated and brilliant kindergarten teacher,” and during an appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” to promote “Abbot Elementary,” she revealed, “I was in my mother’s class, her kindergarten class. I was in her class and I went to the same school where she taught for like six years, including kindergarten. So I rode to school with her, rode home with her, watched her work more at home. It’s just getting such a different view. And I really credit my mom’s experience for helping me to create the show.”

As a child, Brunson was very energetic, which led her mother to enroll her in ballet and aerobics classes. Quinta studied at the Charter High School for Architecture & Design and became “obsessed” with comedy as a teenager, which inspired her to take an improv class.

After graduating from high school, she attended Temple University, and as a sophomore, she took classes with Chicago’s famed Second City improv comedy troupe. Quinta later dropped out of college to pursue a comedy career.
