Oscar nominee Mo’Nique is going back to her roots by hosting a comedy showcase next week.
Mo will emcee “Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All-Star Comedy Jam.” Filming February 12 in Dallas, the show features comedians such as Paul Mooney, Mike Epps and Corey Holcomb, just to name a few. The event comes on the eve of the NBA All-Star Game.
