Trivia and Quotes

    Underrated puts it mildly. I don't understand how Mo Collins is not a household name by now. I actually saw her in a dramatic film before catching her on MadTV. I became a fan upon seeing her work on MadTV, which I started watching in reruns on Comedy Central. The characters she originated there (at least I think they were created for the show) were as funny and well-crafted as any I've seen on tv. Doreen Larkin (Stuart's Mom), Lorraine (staggering to know its her), Trina (I love, love, love!), and even Tammy Dupree. The physical transformations to these characters astounds me. Why she doesn't have a variety show or something that focuses on her abilities is a complete tragedy. MATT LEBLANC had his own sitcom for crying out loud! :-( At least Comedy Central could take her comic talents and run with them... Why no stand-up or recording of her one-woman show? Mo Collins is my generations Carol Burnette and should get the break she deserves - hopefully sooner than later.moreless
  • Strong comedian

    Would someone please give Mo a role in a major feature film? She ranks up there with Catharine O'Hara as a versatile funnylady and serious actress.

    I think "Madtv" was just the tip of the iceberg for her and hope to see her move on to bigger and better things. Forget TV...go for the movies...and I hope you get to team up with Carol Burnett sometime!
