Mo’Nique has filmed a new Netflix stand-up special — four months after settling her gender discrimination lawsuit against the streaming service.

The comedian and actress shared details on the taping with her followers in a recent Instagram post,  revealing the special is titled My Name is Mo’Nique.

She posted a picture with husband Sidney Hicks outside the Rialto Center for the Arts in Atlanta, and included a caption thanking fans for attending.

“Thank you, Thank you!!!!!! My sweet babies thanks to everyone that came out and celebrated this moment with us. My Name Is Mo’Nique live comedy taping coming on Netflix! What a moment!! I love Us 4real,” she wrote.

In an earlier post, The Queens of Comedy star shared a flyer about the special for fans hoping to attend.

Netflix has not yet announced when the special will premiere.

In June, Mo’Nique and Netflix settled a years-long legal dispute after the comedian accused the streaming giant of racial and gender discrimination.

The Oscar-winning performer filed the suit in Los Angeles Superior Court in 2019, claiming the company “made a lowball offer that was only a fraction of what Netflix paid other (non-Black female) comedians.”

She called for a boycott of the streaming service, saying it treated her unfairly by offering her significantly less money for an hourlong stand-up special than the company paid comedians Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle, and Chris Rock.
