The Monique Show!!

Queen of Comedy Mo’Nique now has her own talk show, which debuted last night on BET. The opening show was an emotional one for Mo’Nique, who teared up on a couple different occasions. The show is taped in Atlanta and features a live band with plus-sized dancers.

Mo’Nique was extremely overwhelmed when presented with Atlanta’s Phoenix Award by Atlanta mayor, Shirley Franklin. Mayor Franklin made a guest appearance but departed shortly thereafter. Mo’Nique’s first guest was fellow comedian Steve Harvey. Harvey discussed his new book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. They emotionally discussed the first time they met 16 years ago in a comedy club parking lot, and Steve praised Mo’Nique for having come this far in her career. Singer Monica made an appearance and discussed her upcoming reality show and singer Jeremih performed.

The high-spirited comedienne definitely made the show interesting, as she was hardly able to contain her enthusiasm. The show has been a project in the works for years and has finally come to life on BET. This is Mo’Nique’s first stint as a talk show host. She has hosted the BET awards on multiple occasions and has also hosted The Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School. Mo’Nique also has a book out entitled Skinny Women Are Evil and a cookbook, called Skinny Cooks Can’t Be Trusted. She will also be starring in the upcoming film, Precious. You can catch the Mo’Nique show weeknights at 11/10c on BET.Monique
