In Jail with Mo’Nique

Mo’Nique: I Coulda Been Your Cellmate – Showtime

One of the highlights of the late Johnny Cash’s career was when he stood brave before the inmates at Folsom prison to deliver one of his best concerts. Tonight on Showtime, popular comedienne Mo’Nique hopes to utilize some of that magic when she performs her stand-up at the Ohio Reformatory for Women.

On top of comedy, the special also takes a documentary approach to the event, capturing many of the inmates’ stories on how they ended up behind bars. The stand-up material is coarse and at times x-rated, but by walking the grounds and lending them an ear, Mo’Nique gains their respect from the beginning.
