Rising Stars: Meet HerShe The Entertainer

Today we’d like to introduce you to HerShe The Entertainer.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I started entertaining at eight years old. I did everything from child modeling, acting, writing to singing in the adult choir. It wasn’t until the year 2009 I discovered my love for comedy. Yeah sure I’ve always been naturally funny but the stage was a totally different beast. One day my stepfather said you’re going to perform comedy too. I laughed it off and thought nothing else of it. Well a week later he enrolled me in a comedy course called “Comedy 101”. That moment changed my life. It’s been full speed ahead ever since.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Smooth road, ha! What’s that?! Definitely hasn’t been an easy road but definitely one worth traveling nonetheless. I’ve had to deal with grimey promoters, sexual harassment, unpaid shows, hate, disrespect and so forth. However, I wouldn’t change the path I’ve been on. It molded me and made me special.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I perform comedy, sing, act, write and host events and podcast. When asked what do I specialize in that’s a tricky question for me because honestly I try to be my best at them all. So if I had to give an answer, it would be entertainment. Back in my younger years, I was most known for singing and acting but within the last 12 years, I’m mainly known for comedy, acting and hosting. I think what sets me apart is my ability to do impersonations. You don’t see too many females in this business doing impersonations. I do one killer ass Fantasia impersonation. What also sets me apart is I believe and giving opportunities and paying it forward. I created a clothing line in 2016 called SUPPORT2BSUPPORTED. I stand by this motto because it’s so important that we push and support each other in every way. Support doesn’t always have to be monetary.

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
Be kind. Our craft isn’t a competition. There’s enough money to be made. Bless others as you yourself have been blessed. Learn as much as you can while keeping your integrity in the process. Always give 110% or don’t do it at all. Lastly, never let your fellow performers define you and your craft remember everyone has an audience so perfect yours.
