The comedian and on-screen talent, Mo'nique will make history by becoming the first female African-American to hold a residency performing in Las Vegas. She spoke to us about her new gig,

"They said, 'Mo'nique, as long as you keep showing up, we'll keep showing up.'"

Mo'nique's past achievements speak to her talent and dedication to entertaining. In 2009, the comedian won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Precious.

Although this win was a huge success, Mo'nique feels more connected to her NAACP Image Award.

"When the Image Awards came on, I saw people that looked like me and they celebrated each other. That was such a special night for my community, because it was us appreciating us. When I watched the Oscars, I didn't see people who looked like me."

Mo'nique's passion for unity and entertaining will definitely shine through her historical performances.

The show is held at The Sayers Club in the SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Thursdays at 8 PM, and Fridays and Saturdays, with two shows, at 8 PM and 11 PM.
