Sherri Shepherd is an actress, comedian, author and television personality. 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!
She is best known for being a co-host on The View from 2007 to 2014, for which she received multiple Daytime Emmy Award nominations, winning one in 2009. That same year, Sherri and the co-hosts were chosen as part of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” by Time magazine while Forbes ranked The View hosts #11 among the top “30 of the Most Influential Women in Media.” In 2009, she starred in a sitcom of her own on Lifetime, Sherri, which aired for one season.
Sherri 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, The Jamie Foxx Show, Living Single and Emeril. Shepherd is also the voice of twin toucans Cheryl and Meryl in the Disney Channel's comedy series, Brandy & Mr. Whiskers.
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.
Sharing her passion for staying healthy, Sherri authored PLAN D: How to Lose Weight and Beat Diabetes Even If You Don’t Have It, a New York Times Best Seller. She is also the author of a humorous autobiography, Permission Slips: Every Woman’s Guide to Giving Yourself a Break.
The Chicago native is mother to two sons, Jeffrey and Lamar. Knowing the heartache and joy of raising a child with special needs, Sherri has partnered with the YAI National Institute to raise awareness for children and adults with disabilities. She is involved with numerous philanthropic organizations including the March of Dimes.
