Female Impressionist, Sylvia Traymore Morrison, Impersonates Comedienne Mo’Nique in “Mo’Nique Claps Back”
Washington, DC – As the first black female impressionist to emerge on the entertainment scene back in the early 70’s, Washington D.C.’s Sylvia Traymore Morrison knows a lil’ something about having to battle it out as a Black female in Hollywood. Her very brief stint as an associate writer on Saturday Night Live, back in the early ’70’s, is documented in her memoirs, “Almost There, Almost…The Many Faces of Sylvia Traymore Morrison.”
The recent travails of fellow comedienne Mo’Nique, per her disclosure that she has been blacklisted, hit Morrison close to home. Her hilarious comedic take and impersonation on the matter has gone viral on Facebook and has been uploaded to YouTube.
One of the first solo artist to tour and open for Whitney Houston, Morrison’s career in Hollywood is legendary, even if not well known. The iconic Redd Foxx recognized her talent early on and signed her to her first management deal. She has opened for some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, including Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, The Temptations and Cher and amazingly impersonates Wendy Williams, Diana Ross, Mo’Nique, Whoopi Goldberg, Nicki Manaj and First Lady Michelle Obama, to name just a few.
