Moms Mabley

Last summer, despite some criticism of her use of the online crowd-funding website, Kickstarter, to raise funds for her Moms Mabley documentary, Whoopi Goldberg did reach her campaign goal, actually surpassing it, raising over $73,000, when her goal was to raise $65,000.

Goldberg had been working on a documentary feature on the life of pioneering comedian Moms Mabley for at least 3 years, and it looks like she's reached the tail-end of its journey, as it's been announced this afternoon that the film will make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC, this spring.

Titled I Got Somethin' To Tell You, here's its official synopsis:

Having broken racial and sexual boundaries as a pioneering comic talent, the late Moms Mabley has long been an icon in the comedy world. Now Whoopi Goldberg takes a deep dive into Mabley’s legacy via recently unearthed photography, rediscovered performance footage and the words of numerous celebrated comedians. A true passion project for Goldberg, I Got Somethin’ to Tell You shows Mabley’s historical significance and profound influence as a performer vastly ahead of her time.

The Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 17-28, right in my back yard, so you know we'll be covering it.

No trailer for Whoopi's doc just yet.
