About The Author:

Dr. Sylvia Traymore Morrison is a celebrated comedienne impressionist. Originally from Washington, DC, Sylvia is the first renowned African American Female Impressionist in the history of this country. Her career/reputation is legendary and if you have had the pleasure of watching her perform, you fully understand. When heavyweight boxing was at its zenith and Muhammad Ali was in his prime, Sylvia was asked to host a Roast of the Champ at the legendary Apollo Theater. The hosting job was so prolific and the imitation of the World Heavyweight Champion was so spot-on, Sylvia was offered a position as an associate-writer for one of America’s longest-running TV shows, Saturday Night Live. She is one of few African American Women offered that position. Sylvia has released her first book, based on her true story, entitled "Almost There, Almost...The Many Faces of Sylvia Traymore Morrison." She is presently the subject of a documentary entitled "A Legend Among Us." The proud mother of two daughters, Jasmin and Michelle, she was conferred with her first honorary doctorate degree on July 23, 2016. She's a lot of fun to watch!
