My good friend Tracey Ashley along with Leighann Lord, Retta and Alycia Cooper have banded together to form the Sheroes of Comedy, four fantastically funny female African American comedians coming to Acme Comedy Company Thanksgiving week.
Individually, these ladies have been doing stand up all over the US for years, but their recent combo tour has been knocking out crowds and busting down stereotypes. Not only are these ladies hilarious, they also bring intelligence and class to the stage: qualities that audiences seem to be surprised about.
As an African American Comedian myself I have run into many of the same barriers that these ladies have, and it was great to talk with them and see how they’ve worked together to overcome obstacles.
In our interview you’ll not only laugh you’ll learn how these ladies break down barriers. Just click to hear the Sheroes of Comedy and Miss Shannan.
