Moms Mabley - Moms Mabley Breaks It Up 1962

On: Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Moms Mabley
Loretta Mary Aiken
aka Jackie Mabley
Brevard, North Carolina, USA
Mar 19 1894 – May 23 1975 age 81

Mabley's forays into comedy....proved most enduring - appearing on-stage in house dresses and over-sized hats (a wardrobe inspired by her own grandmother), her matronly image belied her saucy routines, which were laden with sexual innuendo as well as cutting observations on the state of race relations in the U.S. As several observers pointed out, her no-frills, little-old-lady appearance not only endeared Mabley to fans, but made it that much easier for audiences of all races to swallow her more biting material - even few male comedians of the time were as pointedly topical or as salacious, and most of them were white on top of it. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
