MARSHELLE WOODLAND aka “Ms. Woody”
Midwest Show Me Funny Ent. President/CEO
Marshelle "Comedian Ms. Woody" Woodland grew up in St. Louis, MO, and has been developing her comedic art since the mid 1980's. As a college student at Southeast Missouri State University, Woody was inspired to make people laugh by Cedric the Entertainer when he used her as a subject in his stand-up act. Woody has performed with the likes of Jesse Taylor, Darius Bradford, Arvin Mitchell and many more. After a hiatus from comedy she worked two full-time jobs as a Bi-State bus-driver, she decided she had enough material in her surroundings to bring her art back to the public. Woody has co-hosted radio programs with Bob Lawrence, and produced, promoted and sponsored The Annual Midwest Show Me Funny Comedy Competition, featuring comedians from around the United States. Woody's main focus, however, is the need for community members to encourage and support each other.
Whether she is fundraising for charities, passing out water in extreme heat to the homeless, or driving her kids to school events. Woody is focused on making Midwest Show Me Funny Entertainment the first venture incorporating multiple not for profit groups for a single purpose. This will be executed by bringing corporations together to sponsor fundraising events that will help those organizations making a positive impact in our community. Ms Woody elaborates " When you are laughing you forget your troubles and your pain. It's always better to support people who are there for the greater good"
