BIOGRAPHY

Side 2 Side (sid 2 sid) 1: bringing together differences 2: bright, light, to shed light

Sheridon Gospel Network the Light set out to find the King or Queen of Clean Comedy That Is…And discovered Side 2 Side.

A preachers kid born from the womb laughing and has been cracking people up every since with her jaw hurting, side-splitting ability to attack the funny bone through the conscious with her original style of philosophy, Side-Ology!

Voted most humorous she was expelled from Richmond High for performing commercials instead of attending class.

She has received numerous first place trophies and awards in speech, comedy, poetry and acting. Side 2 Side has her own original one-woman show titled Side-Ology: (The Mourning of a Spirit) where she portrays seven diverse characters. She is writing a situational comedy show which she plans to star in. She is also a master tambourinist, bringing her tambourines to the comedy stage, Side 2 Side has taught Comedy Traffic School, Comedy Workshops, coaches speech teams and teaches drama for Los Angeles Southwest College Young Scholars Camp, KYDS enrichment after school program, Artship foundation, Center for the Performing Arts and East Bay Center for the Performing Arts and has directed many plays including “Antigone,” “The African American Living Museum,” “It Ain’t so Funny When the Jokes on You,”, “So Happy I’m Nappy,” “Tribute to The Lion King,” “Sister Act 2” and a variety of children plays.

With the smooth rhythm of a seasoned veteran “Side 2 Side is a contagiously funny comedian with an electrifying energy” - Slobodan dan Paich, Artistic Director, ARTSHIP foundation “Side 2 Side is a high achiever gifted in the art of creative expression and funny from the heart, she is brilliant and quite astonishing “Professor DaShaun Booker USC. Clean comedy is an art that’s why so few can do it. If you happen to be seated in an audience with your four-year–old son and your ninety four-year-old grandmother. You can relax in complete confidence knowing that she is wholesome and clean.

Side 2 Side’s comedy comes from her observations of everyday life with her own Side-twist, Side-Ologizing a nation through laughter one audience at a time, one joke at a time. With her own philosophy “Side-Ology,” she appeals to a wide variety of audiences. A storyteller at heart, she talks about everything from growing up in church to things she hates, too hair salons, to children, to her getting suspended from college, to Dianetics and L. Ron Hubbard. She uses her master storytelling skills effortlessly to tackle sensitive subjects. Laughter and yells of agreement quickly from the audience replace any feelings of uneasiness.

Having worked with and opened for such artist as Patti La Belle, Donnie Mc Clurkin, George Wallace, Mikki Howard, Eddie Griffin and Sinbad to name but a few. It is no wonder she was crowned “The Queen of Clean Comedy” and one of “California’s Funniest Females”.

Inspired by Comedy’s Greatest Innovators Lucille Ball, Bill Cosby, Jerry Lewis, Redd Foxx, Carol Burnett, Flip Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg.

Side 2 Side founded the Sallie E. Cosby-Clemons Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of her mother, to assist children in the arts to develop their gifts and to become the very best that they can be. “I shall look to the stars for surely her name shall find its way.” Jordan Simmons, Artistic Director, East Bay Center for the Performing Art.
