Sheletta Brundidge is an Emmy award-winning comedian and radio host. Aware of the serious lack of diversity in traditional media and frustrated by her own inability to find a seat at the table, she decided to build her own. In 2020 Sheletta created SHElettaMakesMeLaugh, a podcast, promotions and production company.
While continuing her role as a talk show host on WCCO Radio and a commentator on TPT’s Almanac, Sheletta has risen in stature as an influencer, social media phenomenon, and activist for people with autism and entrepreneurs. With a journalism degree, a newsroom background and several stints as a standup, Sheletta straddles the worlds of public policy and comedy and is equally at home in both.
