TaTa Sherise always knew she was a funny girl growing up in South Jersey. In fact, she takes pride in winning the award for “Class Clown” and “Best Personality” during her school years. She has been on stage dancing and acting since she was 5 years old. TaTa later graduated from Rider University in 2013 where she studied Public Relations and Radio & TV Broadcasting, but it was not until she faced a significant tragedy and a bad breakup that she finally decided to do stand up comedy.
Like most legends, she hit the stage for the first time in 2017 as a sense of therapy and a way to release. After a couple of open mics, great feedback, and realizing she loved being on stage sharing her funny encounters from life, TaTa began to take comedy seriously, and as they say, the rest is history. Her comedy home is Philadelphia, her style is energetic, raw, and she captivates audiences easily with her charm, relatable stories, and dance moves.
In less than 4 years in comedy, she performed in over 170 stand up shows in the Philadelphia tri-state area, Baltimore, Atlanta, and LA mostly as the feature or headlining act including Broadway Comedy Club and Caroline’s in NYC. She also has created several viral videos, won competitions, and performed in two festivals. In 2018 TaTa joined forces with Philadelphia director, comedian, and content creator Andrea "Drizz" Lewis, which helped take her content creation to the next level. In 2021 TaTa was a featured comedian on The Drew Barrymoore Show's Bananamore's Virtual Comedy Club, Season One of Angela Yee's and Magic Lemonade's Mastery of Comedy Digital TV Show and become one of the cast members for The Going Live Show sketch series in Atlanta, GA.
From acting in indie films, creating short films, and comedy sketches to blazing the stage TaTa Sherise’s next step is to expand to other states across the country and your TV screens.
