On Monday, March 20, “Saints & Sinners” actress Vanessa Bell Calloway said hello to 60. She celebrated with a star-studded birthday gala and a comedy show hosted by Sherri Shepherd. Star Jones, Debbie Allen, Kym Whitley, Vivica A. Fox, Tika Sumpter, Cedric The Entertainer, Magic Johnson, Tina Knowles Lawson, Glynn Turman, and many more attended the gala held on Saturday, March 18 at Cicada in downtown Los Angeles.

Calloway kicked off her birthday celebration with a comedy show hosted by Sherri Shepherd and headlined by comedians Chris Spencer, G Thang, Kym Whitley and Scruncho.

Crossing off her bucket list, Calloway performed a stand-up comedy set that brought the house down after she executed a full split to close her show. The comedy event included dinner and was held at the family owned Regency West in the Leimert Park, California.

MIC DROP! Kym Whitley retaliates, after Sherri Shepherd cut her set short by making a comedic observation, by pointing out that Shepherd's dress matched the linens Calloway chose for the dining tables in the Regency West. "Did you know," Whitley asked, much to Shepherds dismay but it was all in good fun! PHOTO BY Gina Walker, Courtesy of DSD Publicity Consulting
