When is the last time you saw Whoopi Goldberg, Wendy Williams, Mo’Nique, Michelle Obama, Cher, Fantasia and FLOTUS Melania Trump together in one evening’s performance? Well, all you need to do is catch the Sylvia Traymore Morrison Show the next time she’s in town.

Originally from Washington, D.C., and currently residing in Maryland, Dr. Sylvia Traymore Morrison is the first renowned Black Female Impressionist in the history of this great nation.

Since impressively hosting “Roast of the Champ” for Muhammad Ali at the legendary Apollo Theater, Sylvia was offered a job as an associate-writer for Saturday Night Live. She has performed with countless entertainers including Jay Leno, David Letterman, Gladys Knight, Robin Williams, Jeffery Osbourne, Jerry Seinfeld, Chaka Khan, Rosie O’Donnell, and Dick Gregory, just to name a few.

At the exclusive request of Whitney Houston, Morrison became the opening act for Houston’s “The Greatest Love World Tour” in over 23 cities. She recently returned from Las Vegas joining Comedian Mo’Nique on her residency where George Wallace spotted her in action and invited her to do his show.

Morrison released her first book, based on her life, entitled Almost There, Almost: The Many Faces of Sylvia Traymore Morrison. which chronicles her life’s journey in the entertainment industry.

Because of this rich history she recently received her first honorary doctorate degree. Sylvia’s honors also include the 2013 Living on Laughter Gospel Comedy Association Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Indie Author Legacy Awards where she received the 2017 Maya Angelou Lifetime Achievement Award.
