Let’s just say that the industry hasn’t treated Mo’Nique in the best way. I mean, the Oscar winner deserved better… but let’s put that all behind us because the actor and comedian has set her first Netflix original stand-up comedy special this year in Atlanta.

“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,” said Mo’Nique. “You won’t want to miss either of them, so stay tuned! Thank you all and I love y’all to life!”
Love how she and Daniels are making nice now.
More of Mo’Nique’s stand-up special will be unveiled later this year.
