Sheila is a dynamo. She is a triple threat. An incredible writer, performer and teacher. She is a legend in the business whose far reaching talents have inspired many. I am proud to be one of those lucky folks that she has influenced. And to my delight, she makes me laugh and snort out loud. Eddie Brill - Letterman Show producer/booker/warm-up comic - Creative Director of The Great American Comedy Festival
I've worked with Sheila on several projects and have always looked forward to an exciting collaboration. She has the ability to instantly brainstorm a wealth of novel concepts and ideas. Her process always delivers thoughts that I could never have imagined on my own. These are all delivered from Sheila's own unique perspective. It also helps that her comedy makes me laugh until I cry. John Frink - Executive Producer, The Simpsons, 20th Century Fox
Sheila knows comedy writing. I worked with Sheila early on, and it was immediately clear that she has an amazing talent for finding the comedy in just about anything. She has a unique ability to blend wit, sarcasm, satire and quirky characters to draw the absurdity out of everyday life. She has an amazing gift. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to learn the craft of comedy. Don Friesen - Showtime Special "Ask Your Mom."
