Hey there! I’m Franchesca, but most people online know me as Chescaleigh. I’m originally from West Palm Beach, Florida (where your grandparents live) and I’m a writer, actress and video blogger based out of New York City. You might know me as a former writer and contributor for The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on Comedy Central, but these days you can find me online and as the host of the MTV News web series Decoded.

My two Youtube channels have over 250k subscribers combined and over 29 million views. My Chescaleigh comedy channel is a mix of song parodies, impersonations and original characters along with socially conscious and topical comedy sketches. While my Chescalocs channel focuses on beauty, natural hair care and styling. My videos and I have been featured on MTV, The New York Times, NPR, Ebony Magazine and The BBC.
