Watch Shalewa Sharpe on Comedy Central here:

On August 19th (her birthday), New York comedian Shalewa Sharpe (as seen on HBO’s 2 Dope Queens, Comedy Central’s The New Negroes, The Tonight Show) dropped her second full-length album So You Just Out Here? on Little Lamb Recordings. When Shalewa was a young adult video store employee in Atlanta, “So, you just out here?” was something an old woman said to her as she observed her pick up some late-night pizza and ice cream at a convenience store. It’s served as a personal mantra of sorts ever since. The answer? She’s older, she’s well aware of consequences, and her knee hurts for some reason. Shalewa is moving through these dark days with the rest of us, and her warm, teasing sense of humor, which takes aim at both herself and her surroundings, is an uplifting antidote to the realities of America in 2019. So You Just Out Here? brings us along on Shalewa’s journey through the world, which is equal parts exasperated side-eye and genuine affection for herself and her loved ones. Shalewa Sharpe is just out here, and we’re all the more blessed for it.

Shalewa will be celebrating the release of So You Just Out Here? at her monthly show Laying it Down with Carolyn and Shalewa at Madame X on Tuesday, August 27th in New York.
