Yvette Nicole Brown (born August 12, 1971) is an American actress and comedian, best known for her roles as Helen on Drake & Josh, Shirley Bennett on Community and Dani on The Odd Couple. She provided the voice of The Seer on Regular Show.
Brown was born in East Cleveland, Ohio in 1971 (though TV.com cites 1973 as her birth year). She grew up watching sitcoms, quickly becoming a fan of them and dreaming of being on one herself. As a teenager, she was a recording artist for Motown Records. Brown attended high school at Warrensville Heights and graduated from Akron University in 1994, earning a Bachelor of Fine & Applied Arts degree.
Brown started appearing on television regularly in 2000, acting on Malcolm in the Middle, That '70s Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm. She had her first regular role on The Big House as Eartha Cleveland, though the series only lasted six episodes before being cancelled. That same year, she earned another regular role, as Helen on Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh, playing Josh's manager at the movie theater he worked at. Brown continued appearing on various sitcoms, including Two and a Half Men, That's So Raven and The Office. In 2009, Brown began appearing regularly on Community, playing Shirley Bennett; she departed the series in 2014 to care for her ailing father. Soon after leaving Community, Brown became a regular on the sitcom The Odd Couple as Dani, which she currently stars in.
Brown has also provided her voice for several cartoons, some being: Pound Puppies as Cookie, Bojack Horseman as Beyonce, Star vs. The Forces of Evil as Brigid and DC Super Hero Girls as Principal Amanda Waller. Brown provided the voice of The Seer in the episode "Meet the Seer."
Brown currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
