The Queens of Comedy might as well be called ”How Stella Got Her #@*! Back.” The performers try both to foster a vibe of sisterly respect and to talk about the sex act in the least self respectful way possible. Mo’Nique, the portly costar of UPN’s ”The Parkers,” riffs at length on the sexual superiority of ”fat bitches.” Is this in the tradition of the great Moms Mabley? Sure. Does it rise to the sophistication of ”Married… With Children”? Rarely. So who’s the joke on?
