Yvette Wilson, born March 6, 1964 in Los Angeles, California is a comedian that has starred on three sitcoms Thea, Moesha, and The Parkers. Before she started her career in the entertainment business, Wilson attended San Jose State University and majored in communications.

Career in Comedy

Her big break came with Thea, a short-lived sitcom in 1993. Thea was cancelled after the 18th episode. This experience helped her get a role in House Party 3 . She also had a minor role in the 1995 comedy movie Friday. In 1996, she took on her most important role to date, Andell Wilkerson, a supporting character on the acclaimed sitcom Moesha, which starred one of castmates from Thea, rising R&B singer Brandy Norwood. She would play the owner of local teen hot spot The Den. In 2000, she left Moesha for its spin-off The Parkers, where she would portray the best friend of Mo' Nique's Nikki Parker. After the cancellation of The Parkers, she went on to appear in shows like HBO's Def Comedy Jam and Fox Network shows. She appeared in films like Poetic Justice starring Janet Jackson, House Party 3, Friday and the film parody, Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.
