Legendary comedians Cedric the Entertainer, George Lopez, DL Hughley, Eddie Griffin and the late Charlie Murphy have teamed up to bring The Comedy Getdown on BET.
The Comedy Getdown began as a stand-up comedy tour headlined by the five comedians of colour that have dominated the scene for decades. A tour of this caliber couldn’t have been anything short of incredible, and as a result, it has become a series involving the comedians in a scripted version of their reality off-stage and with their families.
You'll remember Cedric the Entertainer and DL Hughes from their hit stand-up comedy film The Original Kings of Comedy, George Lopez from his 6 season strong sitcom The George Lopez Show, Eddie Griffin from his killingly funny comedy film Undercover Brother and Charlie Murphy’s writing and acting on the classic Chappelle’s Show
The events that take place on the show encapsulate the comedians’ lives in their usual comical fashion, while reliving memorable moments that came from their time during the tour. Rest assured; you’ll struggle to catch your breath during this show.
If you’ve ever wanted to see all your favourite comedians all at once, it’s a great time to settle in front of your television to enjoy a laugh – or five – the BET way. Yup, these guys go IN!
Catch ‘The Comedy Getdown’ on BET Africa every Friday at 21:50 CAT from 26 January.
