Ajai Sanders, (born April 24, 1967, in North Trenton, New Jersey), is an American actress and stand-up comedian best known for her supporting role as Gina Devereaux in The Cosby Show spin-off A Different World. She is sometimes credited as Ajai Richards.



After graduating from Dallas' Hillcrest High School in 1985, Sanders moved to Los Angeles and began working as a stand-up comic; eventually this work led to what initially was to be a one-time role on A Different World. The guest role was expanded after director Debbie Allen proved impressed by the qualities Sanders brought to the character, whose appearances were expanded to five that season and 18 the following season, after which she was added to the show's opening credits.[1] Sanders has made guest appearances on the sitcoms, Martin, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Parent 'Hood, The Wayans Brothers, The Jamie Foxx Show, and Moesha. She also guest-starred in a 2001 episode of the Lifetime show, The Division.


Sanders had a major role in the independent urban comedy, High Freakquency, in which she was credited as Ajai Richards. She had a smaller role in the Michael Keaton Christmas comedy, Jack Frost and also appeared in the 2000 urban independent drama, The Playaz Court.
