LOS ANGELES, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- U.S. actress and talk-show host Mo'Nique has signed on as host of the third installment in Shaquille O'Neal's All Star Comedy Jam concert series, Showtime said.

Slated to air Saturday, the program will feature Paul Mooney, Corey Holcomb, George Willborn and Michael Blackson.

"Mo'Nique and her cast of characters rip into everything from Tiger Woods and President Barack Obama to hilariously tearing into the big man himself, Shaq," the cable network said in a news release Friday. "Filmed in front of a live audience during the 2010 NBA All-Star Weekend in Dallas, Texas, Mo'Nique leads her court with some of the industry's most talented and sought-after comedians. Delivering side-busting, non-stop laughs, no topic is off limits in this memorable night of comedy at AEG's Nokia Theatre stage."

Mo'Nique won the Oscar for best supporting actress this year for her performance in "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire."
