Song of Sommore
Although Sommore's routines are often confrontational to men, many male comedians, including Steve Harvey and Bernie Mac, applaud her as one of the best female artists around. Sommore says she doesn't look down on funny-for-a-girl compliments. "I think my female presence is very strong. When I go out on stage, I look glamorous and I look sexy," she says. "You can't just say 'Oh, she's a comedian.' I want you to say 'Oh my God, look at those 38Ds -- that's a woman!" --Dusti Rhodes
Sommore isn't the only woman utilizing showing off her best assets this week. In our Night & Day� section, read about another who used her wit to survive a childhood in Ames, Iowa; one who entertains thousands with just a wrestling ring, a bikini and another woman to throw around; and a third who mixed her knowledge of anthropology and choreography -- to address abortion.
