Russell Simmons’s Def Comedy Jam will celebrate it’s 25th anniversary on Netflix (why the hell didn’t HBO pick this up?) And mostly all of the big names who appeared on the series are here, for one night only September 26.
Def Jam was huge when it premiered on HBO in the Spring of 1992 with Martin Lawrence as the host. Such big names in comedy like the late Bernie Mac, Chris Tucker, Dave Chappelle, Steve Harvey, Eddie Griffin, DL Hughley, JB Smoove, Cedric the Entertainer, Faizon Love, Lavelle Crawford, Tracy Morgan, Bill Bellamy, Joe Torry, Craig Robinson, Mike Epps, Earthquake, Aries Spears, Mark Curry, Jamie Foxx, Chris Rock, ect made their television debuts on Def Comedy Jam.
And even the later reboot of Def Jam in the mid 2000s’ put on the likes of Kevin Hart, Katt Williams, Deon Cole, Damon Wayans Jr, Deray Davis and Tiffany Haddish before they were widely known.
This should be great!!!
