Sheryl Underwood

If you don’t want to hear Sheryl Underwood’s opinions on sex, relationships, politics and life, she doesn’t care. She’s going to bring it on anyway. Underwood, who calls herself a “sexually progressive, God-fearing, black conservative Republican” — whatever that means — has the uncanny ability to make the audience understand her even when they don’t like what she’s saying. This brazen and unapologetic comedienne, who won BET’s coveted “Funniest Female Comedian on Comic View” award in 1994, has also starred in such hit comedies as Beauty Shop and Getting Played and is a regular on-air personality on the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show. 8 and 10:30 p.m. today and tomorrow. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit $22.
Fri., Nov. 7, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 8, 8 & 10:30 p.m., 2008
