“Madea” Counts to One

“Comedy is important to me”, understates Tyler Perry (whose) TBS sitcom, House of Payne,  appears regularly.  Most recently he won the NAACP Image award for, Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?

On Feb 20, 2009, Tyler Perry appeared on Larry King Live to say, “no, not ever”, when queried, Have you ever dressed in drag, other than your character?

The beautiful Mr. Perry accompanied by a gorgeous woman beside him at the BET Honors prompted many to ask, Who is that girl with Tyler Perry?

 “Everything in my life, I take it to the screen”, said Perry.  And take it to the Screen, he did.

This weekend Tyler Perry’s Movie:  Madea Goes To Jail hit #1! http://www.blackamericaweb.com/?q=articles/entertainment/movies/7063

“Madea Goes to Jail”,  establishes for me a new category of movies to watch for from him in the future.  The “Safety Pin” category (i made that up) ’cause honey you will need an extra safety pin after you pop your pants! seeing “Madea”,I’m not angry, not taking it and unapologetic about it all kept the audience, (including me) holding our stomachs from laughing one minute and “givin’ us something real” in the next.  Keisha Knight Pullium (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0700443/) brought a “believable” crackhead/prostitute/down-n-out sister (reformed), also lending credibility to Perry’s depth as a Producer.   

See what had happened was”  Madea n’nem….. well, go see the movie


We continue to wish Mr. Perry all the best.  It can be said of the comic genius of “Madea Goes To Jail“.  This is One Brother that truly has his “act” together.
