Iranian-born UK comedian to star in US sitcom, Whoopi!
Whoopi Goldberg stars as Mavis Rae, a proud, opinionated lady who
owns and runs her own small, downtown New York hotel. Keeping things
lively around the place are Mavis' older brother Courtney, Iranian
handy man Nasim (Omid Djalili, left) and Courtney's girlfriend Rita.
But the real star of this hotel is Whoopi as Mavis, who keeps the
zingers flying with her unique brand of topical humor. Just what
you'd hope for from the producers who have so expertly tailored
TV comedy roles for the likes of Roseanne, Brett Butler and Bill
Cosby. Now is the time and this is the role for America to celebrate
anew the brash, bold and unabashedly funny Whoopi Goldberg in all
her glory >>>
