Hey, HBCU family!
Morgan State University alum Mo’Nique got her own comedy special with Showtime!
According to Madame Noire, this news comes a few days after Netflix asked that the lawsuit she filed against them back in November be dismissed.
(Remember Mo had accused the streaming giant of basically lowballing her when Netflix offered her $500,000 to film her own comedy special? She had argued that her resume is just as good as the white and male comedians that they gave millions to in the past for their specials. And, she is right. But that is neither here nor there.)
The black college alum and Academy-award winning actress just broke the news on social media, gushing about her starring in her comedy special.
“HEY MY LOVES!!!INTRODUCING MO’NIQUE & FRIENDS ON SHOWTIME FEBRUARY 7TH AT 10PM. I LOVE US 4 REAL!!!,” she wrote.
The special will be an hour-long and features Mo’s comedian friends like Donnell Rawlings, Prince T-Dub, Just Nesh, Tone-X and Correy Bell.
