Biography

To put it simply, when Etta May takes the stage, she is the reigning Queen of Southern Sass and Your Woman for the 21st Century! This colorful comedienne, known for her trademark floral blouse, polyester pants, horn-rimmed glasses, and print bandana, used to tip the scale at an impressive 250 pounds. Having dropped over a hundred pounds she reflects, saying “You know you’re getting fat when you sit in the bathtub and the water in the toilet rises!”

Through the years, Etta May had a string of dead end jobs. She faithfully drove a school bus for over 10 years and learned how to handle unruly kids by Armor All-ing the seats and touching the brakes all the way home. One night, while volunteering as a bingo caller, she recalls, “the ball sucker got stuck.” Forced to entertain a room full of angry Catholics, Etta May realized she could make people laugh.

Etta May won the prestigious American Comedy Awards: “Stand-Up Comic of the Year,” has appeared live on Oprah, Arsenio Hall, Comic Strip Live, MTV, and regularly on TNN, just to name a few. Her hilarious performance on “The Comedy Store’s 15th Anniversary Special,” broadcast in prime time on NBC, nearly upstaged seasoned pros such as Robin Williams and Richard Pryor.

Audiences may already be familiar with Etta May from the Bob & Tom or the Rick & Bubba syndicated radio shows. She has just partnered with Time Warner Productions, to distribute her video, “The Evolution of Etta” nationwide.
