We've got the undisputed “Queen of Comedy,” highly-acclaimed Sommore who has become one of America’s top female comedians with her winning combination of style, class and sass. Praised by critics, respected by her peers and adored by a diverse fan base, Sommore, who performs stand-up to sold-out audiences across the country, is among the top-grossing acts in the United States (and abroad). Oprah Winfrey proclaimed her “a force to be reckoned with.” Her highly anticipated new, full-length hour stand-up special, “Chandelier Status” (eOne entertainment) premieres on Showtime, Friday, May 31st and the DVD comes out simultaneously.
Sommore, Nia Long's half-sister, launched her career with strategic appearances on top television shows like HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” and “Showtime at the Apollo.” Her popularity skyrocketed with roles in hit films like “Friday After Next” and “Soul Plane.” She was part of the record-breaking “Queens of Comedy” tour which became the highest-rated and longest running one hour special to run on the Showtime network. No topic is off limits and Sommore cuts no corners in her hilarious descriptions of the fast moving world of celebrity life, society's obsession with body image and pop culture in 2013...perfect fodder for your show!
