Moms Mabley displayed humor publicly in areas that people would only speak about behind closed doors back in those days. She graced the runways for all the cougars of today! She didn't hold back, she enjoyed talking about the young man in fact!

Back in the day if we would have been caught looking at Mom's Mabley tape, we knew serious consequences was about to take place. But we really did't care, cause we wanted to see what in the world was so damn funny over there!
