One Monkey Don't Stop No Show
by Don Evans
Director Dawn Walton
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air meets The Cosby Show in this hilariously outrageous comedy about how hard we try to hide who we really are.
The Harrisons are the most respected middle-class black family in Philadelphia. However, the arrival of their young niece and her new ideas from the rural South turns their polite, Christian, suburban life on its head.
Starring award winning comedian and actor Jocelyn Jee Esien (Little Miss Jocelyn)
