I Got Somethin' to Tell You

Whoopi Goldberg’s directorial debut pays homage to comedy pioneer Moms Mabley. Featuring interviews with Bill Cosby, Kathy Griffin and Eddie Murphy, the film chronicles how Mabley paved the way for female comedians transcending racism, sexism and ageism. The documentary also celebrates Mabley’s hilarious brand of political and social humor and deftly illustrates how she served as a role model for Goldberg as an artist.
