One of the boldest and most brazen women in comedy is Sheryl Underwood.

Sheryl dares to say what people really want to do: discussing sex, politics, cuurent events, and relationships in a style reminiscent of Jackie "Moms" Mably, Redd Foxx, and Richard Pryor. By bringing the taboo of adult conversion to the stage, Sheryl's forthright discussions of her discoveries has been working audiences around the country into a frenzy. Like a tent revival meeting, her show elicits bold testimonials from even the most conserative crowds. Sheryl's appeal is her down to earth nature and the ability to get the audience to understand what she is saying even if they don't agree with it.

Sheryl uses humor to take you on a journey through her life. Her routine is based on real life experiances - from the death of her husband to serving in the Gulf War and her controversial thoughts as a sexully progressive, God-fearing black Republican. With eleven years of comedy experiance and a masters degree under her belt, Sheryl has headlined at comedy clubs such as All Jokes Aside, and the Comedy Act Theater. Currently, Sheryl is touring the country conducting the Hilarious Dating, Mating, and Relating Forum discussing the "Waiting to Exhale" Phenomenon.

Sheryl has competed in the Funniest Women in Fresno, Johnny Walker Red and the Funniest Women In the Improv Chicago contests. She was the first woman finalist in the 1989 Miller Lite Comedy Search, the winner of the 1993 Old English Women's Comedy Crunch, The 1994 Black Entertainment Television Award as the Funniest Female Comedian on Comicview and the !st Ronner-up in the 1995 Bay Area Black Comedy Competition securing Sheryl a place in history as the highest ranking female, the only comedian to place in the final round in 1993, 1994, and 1995!

Sheryl most recently appeared in Aspen at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, on the Lou Rawls Parade of Stars Telethon, Comedy Central's Indecision '96, HBO's All-Star Def Comedy Jam, Showtime's Ace-Award-Winning Full Frontal Comedy Show and Fox's Saturday Night Special! Sheryl was also a guest host on HOT 97 for Dr. Dre and Ed Lover, the No. 1 Radio Station in the No. 1 Market in the country.

Not only is Sheryl one of the hardest working comedians in the country, she donates 5% of her road earnings to Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and still has time to support worthy causes as the President of the African American Female Comedian Association and her local chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority inc., of which she is a life member. Sheryl is also as life member of the NAACP.

Sheryl's Comedy CD/Cassette "Grown Folk Business" is selling all over the country and her Safer Sex Poster series is raising thousands of dollars for AIDS Research and the fight against AIDS.
