This afternoon when I heard Mo’Nique would be making an appearance in the Capitol city ,and Good Life Production would be responsible for bringing the Queen to her subjects in Baton Rouge I had to call them to the official details.
Here they are:
Academy Award-winning actress a.k.a. the Queen of Comedy ,Mo’Nique will make her Baton Rouge debut when she headlines Monique and Friends at the River Center on Saturday, August 17th.
“There have been a lot large scale concerts this summer ,but we haven’t had events for mature crowds to come out relax and enjoy themselves and this show provide them that experience” said Quincy Q Quiett , CEO of Good life productions.
Quiett said after bringing sought after musicians like Gucci Mane ,Rick Ross and Trina and controversial reality tv personalities such as Josline Hernandez and Stevie J during the summer there also need showcase diversity among the city’s nightlife.
It’s been 2 years BET cancelled her late night talk show and 4 years since her Oscar-winning performance in Lee Daniels’ Precious.
“We haven’t seen much of over the past couple of years but when you’ve built such great reputation and brand like Monquie’s you can take break your fans will anxiously await your return” said Quiett
Although the mother of three has been on a hiatus that doesn’t mean the queen has been lounging on her throne. This year Mo’Nique changed her diet , began exercising regularly and those changes yielded your highness an astonishing 82 lbs weight loss.
Although comedian’s waistline has gotten smaller she is still working on providing fans with big laughs. She currently touring and in the process of developing a new show with BET Networks.
“People can expect from this show what they will get every Good Life event not just a high quality show , but instead a high quality experience.”, said Quiett
I did my best to get all the details on the “friends” that will be joining Mo’Nique on stage ,but Q told me some thing’s are better left a surprise and we won’t be disappointed.
Tickets can purchased from now until the date of the show from any Ticketmaster, Wal-Mart or the River Center box office.
You’re welcome for the heads up.
