In this installment of “Getting To Know Your Bad Bitches” we field answers from Shalewa Sharpe. Shalewa Sharpe made her Atlanta comedy debut in September 2009, but she has been hilarious since March 2011. She is interested in finding the humor in those dark solitary moments, where the light at the end of the tunnel is actually just your laptop screen at the end of your bed. The “e” in her first name sounds like “ay”, if that helps you with the pronunciation.

OCCUPATION: Media Analyst for BigChampagne/Live Nation. Fancy way of saying “I look up artists/songs/concerts and make sure they exist.” At night & on weekends, I crack jokes in front of strangers.

CHILDHOOD NICKNAME: No nickname. My Black Power parents were adamant about that.

A SECRET FANTASY: I’d like to be a Fly Girl. I took tap-dance classes though, so I think I’m going about it the wrong way.

UNUSUAL FACT: Huh. Okay, here’s a fact – there’s nothing unusual about me. I am possibly the most normal, L7 square you’ll meet. Also, I’ve never seen an Indian Jones movie.

PET PEEVE: People calling the Kroger on Ponce De Leon Avenue “Murder Kroger.” When I hear somebody say that, I want to kill them. At a Wayfield Foods.
I’D LIKE TO MEET: A guy who is attracted to me – those things are like unicorns wah wah wah wank wonk *weeps in her Sprite* (no, but really, dudes – what’s up? i put out.)
PERSONAL MOTTO: “You can’t afford the upgrade, so just make do with the crap you got.”
MOST PROUD OF: (1) My comedy and all of the things that have come with that. (2) That I haven’t accidentally killed my dog. (3) But mostly the comedy thing.
REPUTATION IN HIGH SCHOOL: Lord, that was so long ago. I’m guessing it was Girl Who Was Always Eating Frosted Flakes Out Of A Sandwich Bag.
THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE ME: Skeptical. Softy. Hungry.

  1. I’m totally attracted to Ms. Sharpe but being neither gay nor a man makes it kinda awkward. She sounds bawse tho’!
