Whoopi Goldberg          

Award-Winning Actress, Comedian & Co-Host of ABC's "The View"

One of the most recognized names in America today, Whoopi Goldberg has conquered film, the stage, television and even the book bestseller lists.

Her many films, which include The Color Purple, Ghost, Sister Act, Clara's Heart, Soapdish, Boys On the Side, Moonlight and Valentino and The Long Walk Home, have become classics in our popular culture, and her television roles have spanned hit shows from Star Trek: The Next Generation to Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. She's starred in her own late night syndicated talk show, and currently co-hosts ABC's popular morning show The View.

In addition to starring live on stage and on the screen, Goldberg has also made her mark as a producer. She has executive produced many shows for television, including the Lifetime original drama series Strong Medicine, What Makes A Family, and the Emmy Award-winning Hollywood Squares, and executive produced the hit Broadway musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie, which won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Goldberg is part of a very elite group of artists who have won the Grammy, the Academy Award, the Golden Globe, the Emmy and a Tony.

A prolific and bestselling author as well, her most recent book, "Is It Just Me?: Or Is It Nuts Out There?" was released in 2011. It takes a funny and excruciatingly honest look at how a loss of civility is messing with the quality of life for all of us.

Whatever Goldberg thinks, you can count on her to tell it to you straight, with her trademark irreverence and humor.
