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. The Trenton, New Jersey native is 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. The onetime public schoolteacher is a veteran of Hollywood (Friday After Next, Soul Plane, Dirty Laundry) and the Queens of Comedy tour. She has put in some de rigueur celeb time on reality weight-loss show Celebrity Fit Club, traded barbs with Bill Maher, and recently lashed into Flavor Flav on his Comedy Central roast. According to Lil Kim, Sommore is the original bad girl of comedy. Now if that isnt street cred, nothing is. Shell perform at the Fort Lauderdale Improv at 8 and 10:30 p.m. this Friday, with more shows through Sunday.
Fri., Sept. 17, 8 & 10:30 p.m., 2010
