When it all began for Mo’Nique Imes-Jackson, things weren’t always a laughing matter. Coming from a troubling start after suffering abuse at the hands of her very own brother, the actress got tough and found a way to outsmart her circumstances.
Through the craft and tool of joke telling, intelligence and a natural charisma, Mo’Nique superseded her prior conditions by claiming her right to offer everyone she touched a permanent smile. With each of her career endeavors, she has seen a multitude of success and fortune that naturally place second when you compare them to the richness in her spirit.
The comedian, whose claim to fame started on the UPN television series “The Parkers” and also an author of the bestselling book Skinny Women are Evil, has hosted a Beauty Pageant on the Oxygen Network for Plus Size women called “F.A.T. Chance” and is now the host of her own BET talk show called “The Mo’Nique Show.” Aside from that, she also has many films under her belt that illustrate her talent and her progression through the arts.
