You know you want Sommore, you know you want Sommore

Hey everybody! Hope your weekend went well. With the exception of coming out for church, I spent the entire weekend in the house. Sad too, since it was probably the last weekend in NYC that we'll have 80 degree weather but I really had no energy to be out and about (Ms. Red came to visit.)

Now while laying up in my bed, I happened to catch Sommore's new stand-up on Comedy Central, and since it was funny and black women don't get too many specials all by themself, I figured what better time to do a RBW Spotlight. First of all... she is one of the queens of the killacut chicks club. That's my new little name for all the chicks rocking the short cut. She has been rocking it for a while and as you can see from the pics her ish be laid. She also has the same birthday as me, May 15th baby... Taurus' stand up!!! Things that a lot of people may not know is that she earned a BA in Business Administration from Morris Brown College in Atlanta, GA and before doing comedy she taught Algebra and also owned a couple businesses including a clothing store, shoe store, and a store that featured imported food and specialty products from Africa. Another thing that some people seem to forget is that she is the older sister of Nia Long whose real name is Nitara Carlynne Long, and Sommore's real name is Lori Ann Rambough, so obviously they have different fathers.

She wrote and produced this new special, The Queen Stands Alone, that will be out on dvd on September 30th.The special was hilarious. She talks about politics, Oprah and Gayle, dudes with dicks so little they pee on their, family myths, bad kids, the list goes on. She is truly a queen of comedy. Check out a short clip...not the best representation of how funny she was but the only clip I could find.

I caught this comedy special this weekend, too, and she had me rollin'!!

And I was mad tired from being out and about with my sister, barely one eye open, but I heard most of her special and it was FUN-NY! Especially the part about Oprah! LMAO

Veronica Wright September 15, 2008 at 7:42 AM

Sommore's hair has ALWAYS been laid...ever since the first time seeing her on BET, I've never seen her with a short hair out of place!

didn't know she was Nia Long!

E2Deep September 15, 2008 at 8:33 AM

She is SOOOoooo Funny. I didn’t catch her special but hopefully it comes on sometime this week again.

kay* September 15, 2008 at 10:17 AM

Glennisha Morgan September 15, 2008 at 11:29 AM

Sommore keeps me rolling. I love her.

Smarty Jones September 15, 2008 at 11:35 AM

You know, I'd heard that, but it wasn't until watching this that I noticed that they have the same smile.
Girl, my favorite part is when she was talking about how Marion Jones' kid showed up to daycare "strong as hell!"
Girl, that was funny as crap.

Opinionated Diva September 15, 2008 at 11:41 AM

I always knew they were sisters even though they really don't look alike and dont seem to be that close. Didn't know about her degree and business ventures though...wonder what was it that got her into comedy.

Super Dave Van Buren September 15, 2008 at 11:49 AM

yeah Sommore can get it... lol Sexy and funny. *drooling*

Anonymous September 15, 2008 at 11:52 AM

I had every intention of watching the comedy special but forgot.

clnmike September 15, 2008 at 12:48 PM

Tasha September 15, 2008 at 12:59 PM

The special was too funny! I had no idea she's Nia Long's sister. Wow. I remember her from back in the day on "Comic View"...she has come a looong way since then.

RealHustla September 15, 2008 at 12:59 PM

Sounds funny. Never seen her act. No cable. I'll check out the video.

Eb the Celeb September 15, 2008 at 1:27 PM

@ jaded - hell yeah the oprah part was funny as hell... hell she made me wish I was Oprah best

@e2deep - because of the content its only coming on in the middle of the night... on the East coast it came on at 1 in the morn

@mzinspired - yes girl I am too ready... philly is doing dooooowwwnnn 2nite!

@-1- yeah I remember you posting the hula hoop

@smarty - hell yeah... that part was hella funny... and I can believe it... "who is this kid's mama"... lmao!

@OD - I know... they don't seem to be too close... they never talk about each other or are seen out together... I wonder what the deal with that is

IntrospectiveGoddess September 15, 2008 at 1:31 PM

Yeah like everyone else didnt know she was Nia Long's sister...I guess they arent that close....kinda like how Lisa Raye and Da Brat arent all that close but they arent blood sisters..I think they were just raised together..

I actually intended on watching this cuz I saw that it was on TV and I know sometimes Comedy Central does comedy shows without the censoring...ah well it will more than likely come on again

Oh and why is that your Aunt Flow and mine are crossing paths for like two months in a row?? When yours comes a knocking mine is just leaving...weird....

Seven September 15, 2008 at 1:33 PM

wow @ being Nia Long's sister. I never new that. She is funny as hell. You've been tagged by the way.

Melody.Darlene September 15, 2008 at 1:48 PM

12kyle September 15, 2008 at 2:46 PM

OG, The Original Glamazon September 15, 2008 at 3:27 PM

A long time ago I sat in a small comedy venue, called the Hip Hop Comedy Stop in Houston in the early 90’s and saw two comics one night. Those comics were Sommore and Cedric the Entertainer. I have been HUGE fans of their comedy since then. I can’t wait to pick up the DVD sounds like it needs to be in my collection.


Ticia September 15, 2008 at 4:06 PM

I love Sommore - she is so funny - but real - and has a good head on her shoulders...

Raider_wifee September 15, 2008 at 5:21 PM

@ EB - so you ready to win, lose or tie tonight? LOL - just kidding.. I know the answer :-P (a girl get's confidence when she gets a W in the win column eh?)

I saw the comedy special and I was sooooo happy I had something funny to watch on tv. She is an amazing black woman! And funny as hell...! Her outfit was bangin' and like u said, she was working the hell out of her hair cut!!! Most women cut their hair but don't maintain it. Either was Sommore's comedy will leave a sista' wanting some

Kitty September 16, 2008 at 1:02 PM

Love Sommore and her killacut! I just wish she'd left her nose alone. She looked more like Nia back in the day.

Nola.Divine September 17, 2008 at 4:35 PM

Ohhh I can't wait to check this out! Laughing is one of my favorite pastimes!!

Luvvie (aka Queen IG) September 19, 2008 at 11:26 PM

Before I went natural last year, I was a 6-year member of the killacut chicks club. I miss my LAID hair sometimes.

And wow I didn't know that her and Nia Long were sisters. Well... *the more you know*. Loving the spotlight tho.
