Mo’Nique Breaks Barriers With New Talk Show
Award-winning actress and comedienne Mo’Nique is set to change the landscape of late-night television through her new show, aptly named The Mo’Nique Show.
With tonight’s one-hour premiere, the Queen of Comedy will officially become the first ever black woman to host her own late night talk show. Featuring celebrity guests, a resident DJ, musical performances and more, the show promises to keep viewers entertained.
Mo’Nique had this to say about the new endeavor:
“I’m very excited to finally bring my signature voice and comedy to late night television. This show will definitely give BET viewers the late night show experience, but at the same time, offer something uniquely different to the late show circuit, and I can’t think of a better home to welcome cable’s late night female host but BET.”
The Mo’Nique Show will air weeknights at 11PM on BET. Leading guests will include Steve Harvey, Mayor Shirley Franklin and DrJays.com’s “Summer Sensation 2009″ star Jeremih.
Does Mo’Nique have what it takes to sustain a show in the competitive world of late night?
