Shea Suga hails from Phoenix, Arizona, where she was influenced by a family of entertainers and show promoters, each of whom deserve their own reality show. Shea made her way to Richmond, California, with her huge family at age 10. Shea’s comedy and singing career began in her lively and colorful childhood. As a child, Shea was given to dressing up in her own made-up characters who entertained at family functions. Shea’s favorite character, Motha Gertha, is alive and well as a 64-year -old church granny who battles demons and is addicted to glitter and bling. Motha Gertha is loved throughout churches, comedy clubs, schools and corporate businesses all over the California Bay Area. After launching her stand-up career on May 5, 2005, Shea opened for comedian Luenell just two weeks later. Shea has made it to the finals in numerous comedy competitions and took 2nd place in the “U Better Be Funny Competition” in 2008 in Phoenix, Arizona. Since then, Shea has hosted and featured for headliners such as Sinbad, Sheryl Underwood, DL Hugley, Tommy Davidson, Bruce Bruce, Earthquake, and Lavell Crawford, among others. Shea’s comedic style is characterized by engaging story-telling pickled with unexpected, gut-busting one-liners. Shea sparkles on stage in a swirl of personality contrasts and cultural richness that appeal to audiences of all ages and walks of life. She is sometimes endearingly demur, and at other times gutsy as the All-American Woman. She is smooth and poetic as she breaks into jokes about awkward and farcical situations. Shea’s sharp wit and intellectualism are inescapable as she peels off humorous twists on tech culture, current events, life as a middle-aged single woman, and celebrities. Her fans find her to be hilarious and they love her highly contagious smile. Shea keep her audiences bound in laughter from beginning to end.
