Listeners, prepare yourselves for hilarity with Tyler Perry’s continuing stream of “wisdom” from Madea, aka Mabel Simmons, grandmother and matriarch extraordinaire. Madea is in her natural medium—that’s the talking medium—even though she’s immortalized on TV and in the recent movie MEET THE BROWNS. She dishes out two-to-six-minute skits on men, money, manners, and a range of bizarre but heartfelt other topics that will keep listeners delighted. You’d be hard-pressed to choose the funniest sketch as Madea speaks her mind on so many themes of life: “Speak your mind or lose it.” Tyler Perry makes the most of this audio form, and his own heartfelt epilogue gives a glimpse into the creative spirit who brings us Madea—heart, soul, smart-mouth, and all.
