Mo’ Phatter Laughs

It’s somewhat clichéd to say that comedian/actress Mo’Nique is large and in charge… but damn if it ain’t true. Like most standup comedians, Mo’Nique has made her rounds on the little and big screens in the past seven years, starting out on the somewhat popular TV series The Parkers, which was a spin-off of Moesha. Mo played the quick-witted mother of Countess Vaughn, a leftover from Moesha. In addition to acting, Mo’Nique has kept herself busy by creating her own line of clothes (called “Big Beautiful and Loving It”), co-hosting a Washington, D.C., radio show, birthing twins, and showing up alongside Snoop Dogg and Method Man in Soul Plane. Mo’Nique’s latest gig is starring in the film Phat Girlz as a fat (not Pretty Hot And Tempting) fashion designer who is searching for love in a world full of guys looking for solid abs and tight badunk-a-dunks. Catch Mo this Friday and Saturday at the Palm Beach Improv (550 S. Rosemary Ave., Ste. 250, West Palm Beach). Tickets cost $42.60. Call 561-833-1812, or visit
Fri., April 28
