Co-host of ABC's "The View"; Actress and Comedian
Whether on stage or screen, Sherri Shepherd's magnetic personality and hilarious sense of humor never fail to delight audiences. A self-described "class clown," she relocated to Los Angeles during high school and considered being a mortician, but took a job as a legal secretary instead. She was encouraged by friends to put together her own stand-up act after seeing Andrew Dice Clay perform. Ms. Shepherd's love of performing was instantaneous. Success, however, was not. For five years she toiled as a secretary by day and performed stand-up at night. She finally got her first real break in the comedy "Cleghorne!"
Ms. Shepherd has been featured in the motion pictures Who's Your Caddy, Beauty Shop, Cellular and Guess Who. For four seasons she starred on ABC's Less than Perfect. A groundbreaking performance on the hit series Friends earned her the reputation as one of Hollywood's most reliable sources for brilliant comedic delivery. She has appeared on Everybody Loves Raymond, Joan of Arcadia, Suddenly Susan, Jamie Foxx Show, Living Single, Emeril and the short lived satirical comedies Wednesday 9:30 (8:30 Central) and Wedding Bells. Ms. Shepherd is also the voice of twin toucans Cheryl and Meryl in the Disney Channel's comedy series, Brandy & Mr. Whiskers, and will next be seen reprising her role as Angie Jordan on 30 Rock.
An accomplished stand-up comic, Ms. Shepherd has performed at The Comedy Store, The Improv and the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, and has released both a DVD and a CD of her routine entitled "No Refund, No Exchange."
Ms. Shepherd is involved with numerous philanthropic organizations including the March of Dimes. The Chicago native is mother to two-year-old Jeffrey, Jr., and two retrievers, Angel and Shatzi.
