Comedian/Impressionist Sylvia Traymore Morrison

Sylvia Traymore Morrison had made waves in the 70’s with her brand of humor and hilarious impressions. Her talent helped her host the “The Roast of Mohammid Ali” and eventually becoming a writer for Saturday Night Live.

Having opened for the likes of Whitney Houston and Cher, she has brought her act to the new millennium with impressions of Wendy Williams, Mo’Nique, Whoopi Goldberg, Nicki Manaj and First Lady Michelle Obama, to name just a few.

We will talked to Traymore about the development of African American women in comedy, her working with comedian Red Foxx, and her new book “Almost There, Almost…The Many Faces of Sylvia Traymore Morrison”.
