Sheryl Underwood

Underwood's comedy career began in 1989 when she became the first female finalist in the popular Miller Lite Comedy Search. It was all up from there, with appearances on shows such as Politically Incorrect, HBO's All-Star Def Comedy Jam and BET's Oh, Drama. Using comedy as her medium, Underwood has been extremely outspoken about her views as a Black Republican woman.
