Affion Crocket has found a home for his first solo stand-up special, and it’s with Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud network.
Affion Crockett: Mirror II Society will premiere Nov. 13, 2020, on LOL Network’s streaming and audio channels.
Crockett (The Wedding Ringer, Pixels, A Haunted House), has many millions of views on YouTube, and even his own sketch show on FOX, In the Flow with Affion Crockett, but until now hasn’t done a full solo special. “I’m thrilled and honored to be the first comedian to launch a solo stand-up special on Laugh Out Loud,” he said. “We put a ton of work into this for the culture and being able to partner with LOL to bring ‘Mirror II Society’ to the masses is a vibe. Plus, Kevin Hart promised me a Lambo if this does numbers.”
The Nov. 13 premiere will be available first on LOL Network’s channels on Pluto TV, XUMO and SiriusXM. LOL also will host two drive-in screenings of Crockett’s special, in partnership with BlackFilm.com. LOL X presents Comedy In Color At The Drive-In with BlackFilm.com will take place in Atlanta (11/13) and Los Angeles (11/14). Each stop will feature a special sneak-peak of the stand-up special followed by the screening of classic Black films Boomerang (Atlanta) and Harlem Nights (Los Angeles).

“Affion’s unique mix of dynamic humor and infectious energy is a breath of fresh air, and we couldn’t be more excited to launch our first long-form stand-up special with Affion,” said Kevin Hart, CEO of Laugh Out Loud. “We’re rolling out the red carpet for Affion across all of our divisions: LOL Network, LOL X, LOL Audio and LOL Studios, further illustrating how we are finding new ways to deliver comedy in color, whenever and wherever.”
