I sign, too!  Absolutely!

A few months ago I saw the HBO special on Moms Mabley and her life story is so incredibly interesting so I’m completely here for these biopic suggestions and fancasts.

You may know of them and know a little of their work/life story but most likely we have no idea how much of a pioneer and trailblazer they were..especially considering the time that they were making strides.
