Mo'Nique is an award-winning comedienne whose career began 16 years ago in her hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.  She took to the stage for the first time on a dare from her brother. The overwhelming response and standing ovation she received gave her the courage to pursue a comedy career professionally. From there, she gained visibility and immense popularity with performances on "Showtime at the Apollo," HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," "Apollo Comedy Hour," HBO's "Snaps," BET's "Comic View," The Montreal Comedy Festival and Uptown Comedy Club.  Mo'Nique credits her big break as the day she quit her job at the phone company in Baltimore to pursue her comedy dream wholeheartedly.
