Mamas, Dating, and More At State Theatre NJ

COMEDY NIGHT: Sherri Shepherd, left, and Kym Whitley bring the humor of their podcast “Two Funny Mamas” to New Brunswick on May 19.

“Two Funny Mamas Live” featuring Sherri Shepherd and Kym Whitley comes to the State Theatre New Jersey on Friday, May 19 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $39-$59.

Shepherd and Whitley deliver a night of comedy based on their podcast Two Funny Mamas, which speaks to culture, sisterhood, moms, and working women everywhere. Nothing is off limits when these two get together to talk about life, love, motherhood, singleness, relationships, dating, pop culture, sex (or the lack thereof), and everything in between.

The show features individual stand-up routines from both, along with the two of them on-stage riffing on current events, telling stories, and answering questions from audience members.

Shepherd’s daytime talk show Sherri airs weekdays on FOX. She previously co-hosted The View for over 600 episodes where she and her co-hosts won the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host. Shepherd can also be seen as the no-nonsense Senator Yvette Chase on HBO Max’s Sex Lives of College Girls. Her credits also include three seasons on the Netflix series Mr. Iglesias, opposite Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, the NBC sitcom, Trial & Error, along with iconic roles on KC Undercover, Friends, 30 Rock, and The Jamie Foxx Show.

Whitley has appeared on ABC’s My Wife and Kids, Two Broke Girls on CBS, and HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. She recently completed production of her docuseries Raising Whitley on the OWN network, and stars in Freeform’s sitcom, Young & Hungry.
