Jackie "Moms" Mabley -- "The Original Queen Of Comedy"

"The Original Queen Of Comedy Part 3". "Moms" Mabley was billed as "The Funniest Woman in the World", and she tackled topics too edgy for many other comics of the time including racism. One of her regular themes was her romantic interest in handsome young men rather than old "washed-up geezers", and regularly got away with it courtesy of her on stage persona where she appeared as a toothless, bedraggled woman in a house dress and floppy hat. She added the occasional satirical song to her jokes; her version of "Abraham, Martin and John" hit #35 on the Billboard charts in the summer of 1969. At 75 years of age, Moms Mabley became the oldest person ever to have a US Top 40 hit.

We present "Moms" Mabley in the early 1960's performing more of her famous comedy routines. What great clean humor!
