Show Notes

We are gathered here today to celebrate the life of sister Mabel Madea Simmons. The iconic character, created and played by Tyler Perry, is being retired after 20 years of captivating and aggravating audiences on stage and screen. Join us as we gather with some special guests (including Jason Parham of Wired Magazine) to reflect on Madea’s life and legacy with a funeral service at the Nod-to-God Holy Tabernacle.
