Born in May 1966, Sonmore is noted for her roles in the movies Soul Plane, Dirty Laundry and Friday After Next, a 2002 comedy that was directed by Marcus Raboy and which co-starred Ice Cube. The comedian has also appeared on numerous television shows in the past. These include Def Comedy Jam, an HBO production, as well as ComicView and Showtime at the Apollo. She has also been a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show and sometimes acted as a guest star in situation comedies, such as the Hughleys and the Parkers.
Sonmore's career milestones
Sonmore grew up in the Trenton area of New Jersey. Educated in a number of Catholic schools, the young performer graduated from high school in 1985 and went on to study at Morris Brown College, a further education facility in Atlanta, Georgia. She studied business administration, a subject that hardly suggested a career in show business.
Establishing herself as stand-up comedian, Sonmore went on to star in a movie entitled Queens of Comedy in 2001, helping to raise her profile to a much wider audience than is found on much of the comedy club circuit. Displaying her unique style of comedy, the film featured other female comedians, such as Adele Givens, Mo’Nique and Laura Hayes. It was a spin-off film that was created by CBS television following the success of the Original Kings of Comedy. The performance featured a good deal of Sonmore’s own material and was filmed live at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis.
In 2004, the comedian again teamed up with Mo’Nique when she won an acting role in the comedy Soul Plane. She appeared on screen with figures such as Snoop Dogg and Tom Arnold. The film was a modest success at the box office but won Sonmore plaudits from some in the press for her acting skills and comic timing. In 2008, Sonmore made a return to the smaller screen when she took part in 1 vs 100, a game show. She has also taken part in some reality TV show projects. Notably, she featured in season six of Celebrity Fit Club, a show in which viewers saw her successfully shift 11 pounds in weight.
As well as continuing to perform her stand-up routines, Sonmore has more recently taken to hosting TV shows. She successfully hosted Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta, for example. She has also been a guest on programmes such as Just for Laughs and The Mo’Nique Show.
