You may have already read on the net about how Shaquille O’Neal has decided to take a crack at the DVD producing business and has partnered with Cedric the Entertainer to bring you Codeblack’s DVD release of The All-Star Comedy Jam series (2009). The DVD release is expected for September 8th, and we are hearing it’s all kinds of funny. Codeblack was kind enough to send The Hoop Doctors a cut of the trailer for the soon to be released DVD to share with you folks.
Here is what AllHipHop.com had to say about the release a few days ago:
The comedy series, which was originally taped live in Phoenix, Arizona before the NBA All-Star Game, features standup routines by host Cedric The Entertainer, Tommy Davidson, Aries Spears, Kevin Hart and DeRay Davis.
O’Neal produced the 88-minute DVD in conjunction with Jeff Clanagan’s Codeblack Entertainment, one of the first modern African-American owned, new media/entertainment companies.
In addition to backstage commentary from each comedian, the All Star Comedy Jam series DVD features guest appearances from fellow comedian Katt Williams and Hip-Hop couple Nelly and Ashanti.
O’Neal, Clanagan and Codeblack Entertainment have already started production on the second installment of the series, which was taped live during the 13th annual American Black Film Festival in Miami.
Check out the trailer, and have your eye out for the DVD on September 8th:
