FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

I GOT SOMETHIN' TO TELL YOU

TFF 2013 Directed by Whoopi Goldberg
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE I GOT SOMETHIN' TO TELL YOU [TFF 2013]
Comedy pioneer Moms Mabley, often referred to as “the funniest woman in the world,” comes to life again, complete with rolling laughter and measured eloquence, in Whoopi Goldberg’s directorial debut. This astute first documentary feature showcases Mabley’s talent and pays homage to a woman whose relevance still resonates today.

A role model for Whoopi Goldberg herself, Mabley’s legacy is defined through rich found footage and interviews with some of the world’s best comedians, including Bill Cosby, Kathy Griffin and Eddie Murphy. They show how Mabley paved the way for female comedians and performers everywhere with her boundary-pushing stand-up routines and innate ability to transcend racism, sexism and ageism. The documentary dives whole-heartedly into Mabley’s comedy, political and social and still hilarious. A passion project for Goldberg, it celebrates Mabley’s historical significance and profound influence as a performer vastly ahead of her time.

—Genna Terranova

*NOTE: April 22, 2013 screening is exclusively for American Express® Cardmembers
