To his fuzzy following he is best known as the character of Melvin aka Uncle Mel in the award winning and internationally celebrated gay romantic comedies BearCity and BearCity 2. He has been recognized and noted for his hilarious stand-out performances in the film franchise and instantly became a “bearlebrity” poster boy and fan favorite.

Over the years Sherman has had the privilege and pleasure of performing all over the United States and internationally. He made a name for himself as a multi talented performing artist in New York City and has been seen on both the big and small screen, in cabarets, nightclubs and even on the broadway stage. He loves to collaborate with talented artists around the world and enjoys the opportunity to work with charities and give back to his community.
