The 25th anniversary of Def Comedy Jam is not going unnoticed by Netflix.
Sure, Russell Simmons has revived the brand for HBO, where it debuted originally in 1992, with a new season of All Def Comedy hosted by Tony Rock, coming this December.
But before that happens, Netflix will celebrate Def Comedy Jam 25, with a special that includes “surprise guests, tributes and performances” — including officially announced appearances by Bill Bellamy, Cedric the Entertainer, Dave Chappelle, Mike Epps, Adele Givens, Eddie Griffin, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, Kid Capri, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Craig Robinson, JB Smoove, Sommore, Joe Torry, Sheryl Underwood and Katt Williams.
Stan Lathan, Russell Simmons, Sandy Wernick and Jesse Collins serve as executive producers. Def Comedy Jam 25 will launch exclusively on Netflix this fall.
Roll the tease…
