Comedy pioneer Moms Mabley, often referred to as "the funniest woman in the world," comes to life again in the documentary Moms Mabley: I Got Somethin' to Tell You, Whoopi Goldberg's directorial debut. The film showcases Mabley's talent and pays homage to a woman whose relevance still resonates today. A role model for Whoopi Goldberg herself, Mabley's legacy is defined through rich found footage and interviews with some of the world"s best comedians, including Bill Cosby, Kathy Griffin, and Eddie Murphy. They show how Mabley paved the way for female comedians and performers everywhere with her boundary-pushing stand-up routines and innate ability to transcend racism, sexism, and ageism. The documentary dives whole-heartedly into Mabley's comedy - political and social - and is still hilarious. A passion project for Goldberg, it celebrates Mabley's historical significance and profound influence as a performer vastly ahead of her time.
