Partnership Services for the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard of Hearing – presents…Queen Foreverrr
Celebrating Deaf Awareness, we are excited to bring this up and coming Deaf actress/comedian to our area.
Sheena Lyles credits her friend, Jill Cooper for her soaring success as a comedian/actress. Growing up in deaf family home in York, PA, it was her excessive silliness, family members, and good friends that prompted her to steer her into making comedy skits. Lyles has been making people laugh ever since appearing on her Queen Foreverrr Facebook page, Deaf Women of Color’s Conference (D.W.C), and National Black Deaf Advocacy (N.B.D.A.)
Not only is she a comedian, she has proven to be a versatile actress appearing in such diverse films as the TVOne crime series, For My Woman & For My Man where she played a lead role as a real-life murderer Daphne Wright and a third supporting role of Aveance. Lyles’ comedy has spreaded all over the deaf world and soon to the hearing world.
Lyles sees herself as beautiful as Queen Latifah, as funny as Jim Carrey, raw like Leslie Jones with the comedic timing of Mo’Nique, Unique like Tiffany Haddish, Jewish as Whoopi Goldberg, and hopes to someday have money like Ellen.
Mature audience only. Limited seats! Performed in ASL only.
