Mo”Nique is a multi-media powerhouse whose consistent, extensive body of work has captivated audiences in standup comedy, television, film and literature. The award-winning comedienne’s career began 20 years ago after her brother dared her to take the stage for the first time in their hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. She received a standing ovation which instilled the confidence that led to performances on “Showtime at the Apollo,” HBO”s “Def Comedy Jam,” “Apollo Comedy Hour,” HBO”s “Snaps,” BET ”s “Comic View,” The Montreal Comedy Festival and Uptown Comedy Club. Before long, the single mother of one decided it was time to step out on faith and quit her job at the phone company, so she could become a star.
