Sommore

The Trenton, New Jersey native is known for her bawdy humor (she frequently pontificates on a certain aspect of the male anatomy) and is a favorite among her fellow female comedians. In 2009, she joined Mo'Nique and Laura Hayes on the Queens of Comedy tour and has also worked in television on The Hughleys and The Parkers and on the big screen in Soul Plane and Friday After Next.
