Quotes & Highlights

“As a lesson in history, comedy, and a remarkable woman who lived through (and told jokes about) America’s transition from Jim Crow to the Harlem Renaissance to the Stonewall riots and the Black Panther Party, it can’t be beat.” -The Stranger
“Beyond simply a collection of some of her best routines, Owens has created an inside look at this fascinating individual that unfortunately too few people remember … Howell takes on this character not with fervor but with love and a genuine respect. She not only commands the stage but owns it as she gives a one woman performance that never once felt stale.” -Broadway World
“Josephine Howell’s performance was a tour-de-force.   She is a singer par excellence, and has the same amazingly expressive face as Moms, which serves any comic well.” —Drama in the Hood
