Gimme Sommore

Actress Nia Long has a sister – Sommore, a straight talking, no-nonsense, ball of thunder who cuts into men like a hot knife through butter. And this week, Sommore is in town to cut everyone up. Be prepared, for the Trenton, New Jersey, native armed with an onslaught of smarmy jokes, sarcasm, a foul mouth, and tight-fitting leather one-pieces, sorta like a female Eddie Murphy (back in his Raw days, that is). Sommore is a veteran of the Queens of Comedy tour and, having performed in front of 50,000 fans at a concert in Atlanta, a Guinness Book record-holder. She traded barbs with Bill Maher and sold out shows across the country while approaching comedy from the raunchy, sex-fueled ground traditionally occupied by males. According to Lil' Kim “[Sommore] is the original bad girl of comedy.” Now if that isn’t street cred, then nothing is.
