  Biography  

 Early life
Before she started her career in the entertainment business, Wilson attended San Jose State University and majored in communications. Wilson first entered comedy when she lost a bet and had to perform as a stand-up comedian at a friend's club. She decided to make a living of off comedy and never turned back.

 Career in Comedy

Her big break came with Thea, a short-lived sitcom in 1993. Thea was cancelled after 19 episodes. This experience helped her get a role in House Party 3. She also had a minor role in the 1995 comedy movie Friday as Smokey's blind date. She has also appeared in films such as Poetic Justice, starring Janet Jackson, and the film parody Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.

In 1996, she took on her most important role to date, Andell Wilkerson, a supporting character on the sitcom Moesha, which starred one of castmates from Thea, R&B singer Brandy Norwood. Wilson's Andell character was the owner of The Den, a local teen hot spot on the show. In 2000, she left Moesha for its spin-off The Parkers, where she would portray the best friend of Mo'Nique's character 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.
