Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley
- 1 hr 11 min
Whoopi Goldberg pays tribute to the pioneering African American comedienne Jackie 'Moms' Mabley in this special. A stand-up comic who emerged to become a mainstream stage and television star, Mabley pushed the boundaries of comedy by tackling topics such as gender, sex and racism, making her one of the first taboo-pushing comics on the comedy circuit. Directed by Goldberg who also appears, the film includes vintage clips and recordings, as well as recent interviews with many top performers.
