A fan of comedy? A fan of history? Then, you have to watch this HBO special!

Whoopi Goldberg did a documentary on the irrepressible Moms Mabley. It is a fantastic account of her life and contributions to comedy and society, as a whole. There are a number of live clips of her performances and interviews with a number of people in the comedy world. There was only one showing tonight on HBO; I have no idea why. There will be other showings coming in the new year, but it is supposedly on "HBO: On Demand" and on "HBO Go." If you can catch it, do it! Here is a clip from "The Merv Griffith Show" in 1969 of Moms singing "Abraham, Martin, and John." It isn't the clip from the show, but it is still very good.
