MO’NIQUE ANNOUNCES FIRST NETFLIX COMEDY SPECIAL

Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning actor and comedian Mo’Nique is planning a fresh new comedy special for Netflix.

Mo’Nique made the announcement in a video message posted to the streamer’s Twitter account on Tuesday, saying, “I’m excited to say that I’ll be shooting my first Netflix special, in addition to reuniting with my friend, director Lee Daniels on the Netflix film ‘The Deliverance.

News that Mo’Nique is bringing her comedy stylings to Netflix marks a happy (albeit surprising) resolution to a years-long standoff between the star and the streamer.

During a New York City comedy show in April, Daniels appeared onstage with Mo’Nique publicly making amends for their relationship’s breakdown.

Mo’Nique’s most recent comedy special “Mo’Nique & Friends: Live From Atlanta,” dropped on Showtime in 2020.
