She later worked as an entertainer, lecturer, and comedian. She was the host co-executive producer of her own nationally syndicated talk show, The Bertice Berry Show, from 1993 to 1994. According to legend, the show's September 1993 debut was delayed by news coverage of the Israel-Palestine peace treaty; when the show finally aired an hour later, Berry quipped "We've got peace, now here's Bertice."

Besides having her own talk show, Berry has also appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, TEDx Talk, CBS Nightwatch, CNN's Crossfire, and Sonya Live...
