Impressively, Through her sense of humor, she will reveal more about herself than she ever has. Furthermore, she will give perspective on some harsh realities that come with life.

Furthermore, Mo'Nique's Netflix stand-up comedy special follows the announcement that she will star in the film that Lee Daniels is directing. The film, titled The Deliverance, will also have a release on the same streaming platform in the future. When this was announced, many were surprised. Apparently, Mo'Nique and Daniels have a feuding history due to what happened on the promotional circuit for the critically acclaimed and celebrated film, Precious. However, it seems that the two must have buried the hatchet. Additionally, L. Frazier directed the new special and will serve as executive producer alongside her husband Sidney Hicks. Netflix will release My Name is Monique globally on April 4.
