*Sherri Shepherd is headed to New Orleans next month to host Lipstick ‘N Laughter, a comedy special to be held on July 5, during the Essence Festival but not an official Essence Festival event.

Kym Whitley is also on the bill, which will feature established comedians and provide a platform for new, emerging comedy talent from underrepresented groups, including women of color.

With women composing only 25% of U.S. comedians and women of color having even less of a presence on stage and as comedy writers, Lipstick & Laughter offers an opportunity for established comedians and emerging talent to thrive and perform for enthusiastic audiences.

The show will take place at 7:30 p.m. the Joy Theater, with proceeds going to IWES, the Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies, a national non-profit organization based in New Orleans.

Tickets are available at http://www.thejoytheater.com/.
