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.

Gay/lesbian slurs
15 August 2005 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

As a gay man, who has several gay friends who have also seen this picture, I absolutely LOVED Queens of Comedy, and absolutely ADORED Monique. She is a comedian....you can't take everything so literally. She is a gay-rights activist! Her latest venture was the first ever plus size beauty pageant! Lay off Monique, she's extremely sweet and friendly.....her standup is just that, it's funny and on the edge, that's all. All the gay guys I know adore her and laugh insessintly at her one gay slur.

As far as the other ladies, Ms. Givvens is hilarious, Laura Hayes is funny but a little outdated with her material, and Summore is funny, she's just not my type for stand up...
