What You'll Get

Fabulously Funny Comedy Festival

Mike Epps
  • His Start: from standup gigs in Indiana when he was just a teen to building his reputation in Atlanta before venturing to bigger ponds in New York at the age of 21 and conquering the comedy-club circuit
  • Where You’ve Seen Him: hosting HBO’s Def Comedy Jam series in 2006; roles in such blockbusters like The Hangover, All About the Benjamins, and Lee Daniels upcoming biopic about Richard Pryor.
  • His Style: lanky physicality and shape-shifting vocal talents complement his wide-ranging standup sets, which frequently discuss race relations, celebrity peers, and American politics
Sommore
  • How You Know Her: Before being officially crowned a “Queen of Comedy” on the tour of the same name, Sommore was the first female host of BET’s ComicView in 1994 and recipient of the Richard Pryor Award for Comic of the Year in 1995. By 2000, she wound up being registered in the Guinness Book of World Records for helping to draw an audience of up to 50,000 fans. You’ve also seen her in Soul Plane, hosting the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta season 3 reunion, and winning Celebrity Fit Club
  • Her Style: Seamlessly blending class and sass, Sommore conducts laughter like a maestro as she frankly and fearlessly tackles today’s issues from a woman’s perspective. Often it’s unapologetically raunchy and absolutely not for kids.
  • Famous Fan: Oprah Winfrey, who declared Sommore to be “a force to be reckoned with in the new millennium.”
Gary Owen
  • Where You’ve Seen Him: starring in The Gary Owen Show, co-hosting TruTV’s Upload, and appearing in Ride Along and Think Like a Man and on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne
  • Common Topics: racial and cultural issues, family life, and relationships, all of which helped him earn Ebony magazine’s title of “Black America’s Favorite White Comedian”
  • Stage Presence: Disarming and energetic, as can be seen in his multiple televised standup specials, including “I Agree with Myself” and “True Story”
Lavell Crawford
  • Where you first saw him: performing sets on BET’s ComicView before competing on season 5 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing
  • His style: Lavell pushes his animation to the max, using his expressive face and meticulous word choice until his audiences are rolling in the aisles.
  • The breakout role: He is best known as Saul’s bodyguard Huell on the hit series Breaking Bad.
Tommy Davidson
  • What you know him for: Thanks in part to his versatile physicality and spot-on impressions of everyone from Michael Jackson to Sammy Davis, Jr., Tommy Davidson became one of the breakout stars of In Living Color.
  • What that led to: roles in blockbusters as Woo, Booty Call, and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and three standup special on Showtime.
  • Where he lends his voice: to the character Cream Corn on Adult Swim’s cult hit, Black Dynamite.
