In the midst of her Oscar buzz for the movie Precious, actress/comedian Mo’Nique has signed on to host “Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All-Star Comedy Jam,” a comedy special set to air on Showtime.
It’s being presented by Codeblack Entertainment, Shaq Entertainment and AEG Live. The all-star lineup will include the legendary Paul Mooney as well as Mike Epps, George Willborn, Michael Blackson and Corey Holcomb.
“It’s a testament to the strength of the All-Star Comedy Jam franchise that Codeblack and AEG Live locked in a comedienne as talented as Mo’Nique,” said the CEO of Codeblack Entertainment, Jeff Clanagan. “We’re looking to make comedy history because of the chemistry between her and Shaq and all the other talented comics in the lineup.”
The show will take place on Feb. 14 in Dallas.
