Biography

As quoted from Wikipedia:
“Shirley Q. Liquor
A cariacature of a black southern woman, Knipp performs the character Shirley Q. Liquor — an Ebonics speaking, welfare-collecting mother of 19 children[1] — in blackface. Knipp speaks in a dialect when he is performing as Shirley. Her conversations are often riddled with malapropisms, as when she suggests that her cat needs to get “sprayed,” or when she goes shopping at “K-Mark” or ‘Wal-Mark.” The character attends Mount Holy Olive Second Baptist Zion Church of God in Christ of Resurrected Latter-Day Saints AME Hallelujah Jesus (a satire of African-American Churches with long names). She also references the Macademia Jubilation Congregation and the Reese’s Peanut Butter Choir. In a few skits, she refers to herself as The Reverend Doctor Shirley Q. Liquor.

Liquor’s best friend is the seven-foot-tall, 400 pound Watutsi Jenkins, who struggles with mental illness and needs to get “her head shocked” on a regular basis. Jenkins and Liquor are fans of Barry White as well as soap operas, which they refer to as “stories”. Both are also fans of Schlitz and Colt 45 malt liquor and menthol cigarettes. Jenkins usually appears in “Happy Hour” skits which mimic a radio broadcast.

In addition to live performances, Knipp has produced several spoken-word CDs. Knipp’s “Daily Ignunce” morning radio routine, usually 90 seconds long, is syndicated and heard on radio stations throughout the United States. Most recently, the character of Shirley Q. Liquor made an appearance in cartoon form on the pilot episode of Laugh Out, the first interactive, gay-themed comedy show. Shirley often addresses people by saying, “How you durrin’?”
