Raw, unfiltered, and funny. That's what audiences can expect when two funny mamas, Sherri and Kym, get on the mic!

Her credits also include three seasons on the Netflix series Mr. Iglesias, opposite Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias, the NBC sitcom, Trial & Error, along with iconic roles on KC Undercover, Friends, 30 Rock, and The Jamie Foxx Show. She served as host of the iconic game show The Newlywed Game and won her second NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Podcast for Two Funny Mamas that she co-hosts with bestie Kym Whitley, where they deliver their sass, humor while trying to figure out their children and single mother-ness!
