Adele Givens

Renowned children’s author Adele Givens’s Caldecott Medal-winning book If You Give a Whale a Tic Tac … wait a minute, that’s not right. We meant to say stand-up comic Adele Givens’s bit about the whale and the Tic Tac is what Vulture called “arguably the most famous joke in the history of Def Comedy Jam, and maybe the biggest laugh ever caught on television,” and, like most awesome things, definitely should be kept out of the reach of children, mostly ’cause they wouldn’t appreciate it. A veteran performer and contemporary of the Original Kings of Comedy, Givens is just as big and brash and blush-inducing as Martin Lawrence, Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx or anybody anywhere at any time, and a queen in the line from Moms Mabley to Tiffany Haddish. Though she’s appeared in movies like The Players Club and Beauty Shop and on TV shows like The Steve Harvey Show, Martin and Tracey Takes On, she’s still probably best known for leaving an audience falling all over themselves, clapping and stomping in the aisles.
