Storyline

Four African American women, profane and brassy, bring stand-up comedy to the Orpheum Theater in Memphis, Tennessee. Miss Laura Hayes opens the show and serves as emcee. She tells family stories about her grandkids, her mom, and her sisters. Adele Givens urges her audience to celebrate its flaws; she comments on this crazy world, her 92-year-old grandmother, and the need to take care when naming a baby. Sommore, recently released from jail, talks about kids, men, marriage, and why moms give their 8-year-old daughters a hula hoop. Last, Mo'Nique celebrates big women, contrasts Blacks and whites, and gives advice about sex. The film also cuts away to footage of the Queens on the town having fun.

Overall This was funny...BUT...
10 December 2002 | by (Los Angeles CA.) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this show. Almost all of the ladies were hilarious! The only one i took issue with was Monique, I just didn't see much talent there! Though occasionally she would say something funny, her dialogue consisted mostly of swearing (Which I have nothing against!) and very little real talent or actual material to cover herself. Kind of like when we were kids and cursed so we could appear grown up. Monique seemed to cuss to cover up a true lack of talent! i could have also done without her Prejudiced remarks! A true comedian will have to talent to be funny not at the expense of others! If it weren't for her performance (And I am ONLY basing this on her performance!) I would have given this show a 10. Instead I give it a seven.
