  1. As Black History Month Meets Women's History Month...


    For the final day of #BlackHistoryMonth, we’d like to highlight Jackie “Moms” Mabley!  “The Funniest Woman in the World,” Mabley was a celebrated American stand-up comedian whose career started on the “chitlin’ circuit” and lasted over 50 years.  Mabley was a trailblazer for African-American women in comedy, and was notable for her success in tackling difficult and edgy subjects.

    You can tell from the audience reaction how ground-breaking she must've been considered.  I can only hope she's enjoying all who followed.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    I hope you enjoyed.  It was fun laughing through the line-up as I put this together.  The hardest part was not including so many.

    On March 8, 2014, International Women's Day, I will be performing my stand-up in this mostly music variety show.  Admission is free, and I hope to hear you sharing the laughter.
