5.0 out of 5 stars LAUGH OUT-LOUD HILARIOUS!, July 22, 2007
This review is from: The Queens of Comedy (Audio CD)
While it's true that all 4 women use alot of 'foul language', it's clearly not just thrown-in for effect. Rather, I believe each of the ladies probably would tell the same stories in the same way (and using the same 4-letter words) regardless of the circumstance or audience. That said, this is easily one of my TOP 5 comedy albums EVER! The ladies are merciless in their evaluation of men, society, racism, drugs and the everyday twists & turns in life. As other Amazon reviewers mentioned, I agree that Mo'Nique turned-in the least enchanting of the four performances included (and I, too, bought the disc initially on her name). However, even her relatively weak turn at the mic produces out-loud laughter in me, and that's after owning it for over 2 years and playing the thing so often I'm surprised it has any life left in it.

As for the other 3 ladies: Initially, my favorite was Adele Givens, (her bit on Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown left me laughing on the floor & helpless), then it was Miss Laura Hayes- whose Crack-Roommate story has to be considered a comedy classic. Ultimately, though, my vote for #1 is SOMMORE. Though I'd never heard of her before buying this CD, I'm now a lifelong fan. Sine this show, she's turned in performances in the Ice Cube "Fridays" movies, among others. But after seeing TQofC, it's clear that Hollywood has yet to realize the full-potential of SOMMORE. She''s just so damn honest, and sees humor in any situation. Hell, I even bought that lousy "Soul Plane" movie (albeit a 'Used' copy) to catch her performance. BTW, Mo'Nique is also in Soul Plane, and while she's incredibly funny as a horny airport security guard, I cannot, would not recommend that stinker of a movie.

But back to TQofC: My #1 lady SOMMMORE (who makes a reference at the start of her act to having just gotten out of jail) makes observations about men, dating, black people & the police, and the male sex organ which are masterfully funny, andmany of her stories are clearlyl true-to-life. And while it's a sad commentary on racism i nthis counttry that ()as Sommore says), "Black people don't call the Police... we call our Cousins" it's also an incredibly funny bit. I should also add that some men may feel a bit uncomfortable by her take on them, particularly those men who are most happy to hear a woman say that size doesn't matter (Sommore has little use for the underendowed)!

I've read many critics' reviews of TQofC, mostly unfavorable, which made it seem as though this was a cheap knock-off of The Kings of Comedy. I say, NOT TRUE. I've seen both many times, and believe me, the men don't have a thing on these ladies. Even the more 'dated' sketches (like Mo'Nique's take on the Clinton-Lewinsky affair) are still funny to this day. So if you're: a) not easily offended by so-called "bad" language; b) not a seriously underendowed male; and c) have no sense of humor, then I say BUY THIS DISC NOW! It's one helluva deal, at this price especially, and you won't regret it. It's a ton of laughs for a low, low price.
