Mo'Nique's new Netflix stand-up comedy special is in the works after settling a lawsuit with the streaming giant.

Netflix announced the new comedy special in a tweet on Tuesday.

"Thrilled to announce that Netflix is the home for the next original stand-up special from the groundbreaking, trailblazing, and iconic Mo'Nique!"

"Can y'all believe this s---?," Mo' asks in a new video. "I done came on home to Netflix."

According to Variety, the comedy special will be filmed later this year in Atlanta.

In June Netflix announced a settlement agreement with the stand-up comedienne more than two years after she sued the streaming network for offering her less money for a stand-up special than her fellow male or white female counterparts.

Will Smith's assault on comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars has already spawned a copycat incident in Atlanta.

Smith single-handedly destroyed his career when he walked onstage and slapped comedian Chris Rock for joking about his wife.

Cell phone video uploaded to Twitter.com on Tuesday by @Glock_Topickz shows rapper Tip "T.I." Harris snatching a female comedienne's mic for joking about his sexual assault allegations.

The incident happened at Our Bar ATL on Edgewood Avenue in southwest Atlanta.

The comedienne, Lauren K, held her own when an outraged T.I. told her to "stop playing wit me!"

She reminded him that "this is my sh*t!" just before he snatched her mic out of her hand. Security guards surrounded them while they talked it out onstage.

Afterwards, Lauren K said the incident unfolded after the "No Mercy" rapper heckled her from the audience and told her to take her wig off. She responded, "I'll take my wig off, when you address those allegations."

T.I., who had his own mic, began yelling at Lauren to stop talking about the allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women. No charges were ever brought against him.

The enraged rapper verbally abused the aspiring comedienne. At one point he called her a b*tch and ni**a," as boos rained down on him from the crowd.

The 41-year-old Grammy-winning rapper has embarked on a new career as an aspiring comedian. He routinely hones his new craft at comedy shows around Atlanta.

Comedienne Kathy Griffin has been diagnosed with lung cancer, despite "never smoking", and will undergo surgery to have part of her left lung removed.

The 60-year-old comedienne took to Instagram on Monday to reveal she has new onset stage one cancer in her left lung and will have half of her left lung removed today, Aug. 2.

Kathy wrote:

"I've got to tell you guys something. I have cancer. I'm about to go into surgery to have half of my left lung removed. Yes, I have lung cancer even though I've never smoked! The doctors are very optimistic as it is stage one and contained to my left lung. Hopefully no chemo or radiation after this and I should have normal function with my breathing."

The Glee star is hopeful that she will make a full recovery after surgery and predicted she will be "up and running around as usual" within a month.

She added:

"I should be up and running around as usual in a month or less. It's been a helluva 4 years, trying to get back to work, making you guys laugh and entertaining you, but I'm gonna be just fine."

Griffin was fully vaccinated months before her cancer diagnosis.

She went on to praise the mRNA Covid-19 vaccine, saying:

"Of course I am fully vaccinated for Covid. The consequences for being unvaccinated would have been even more serious. Please stay up to date on your medical check ups. It'll save your life. XX00, KG."

Comedienne Luenell is appealing to her fans to stop hugging and kissing her at comedy shows, because she is allergic to nearly everything under the sun - particularly cheap "low grade" perfume.
