Tune in alert for a no miss event only on Showtime, March 14 at 10 PM ET/PT:
One of the Original Latin Divas of Comedy - Monique Marvez - stars in her first one hour Stand-up Comedy Special based on the writings from her critically acclaimed book "Not Skinny Not Blonde."
Marvez – a radio and television personality, writer and comedian – first exploded on the Miami comedy scene in the clubs and cabarets of South Beach. Then, after being a new face at the legendary Montreal Comedy Festival, she started touring the country and eventually the world for the military.
Radio work beckoned, first in Indianapolis for Emmis, then in San Diego as the only human voice of Jack FM, ever, continuing her humorous mission to enlighten both men and women about what's truly important between the sexes.
Marvez has appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, ABC, CBS, PBS and many television shows. The past two years she has shot two Showtime Specials: "Snoop Dogg Presents the Bad Girls of Comedy" and the "Original Latin Divas."
Having been married three times herself, Monique has learned from her past and now dates a much younger man, conceding "life is just too damned short." but don't call her a cougar, she says, "call me what I am ...sore!"
She explains, "the key to a successful relationship can be accomplished in just three steps; One, love hard! your heart is muscle, Two, forgive harder, which is not always easy to do and Three, get as happy as you can as fast as you can because its nobodies job but yours."
First airing is this coming Thursday the 14th at 10 PM ET/PT.
