Shaquille O’Neal has developed a new comedy show with Cedric the Entertainer and Jeff Clanagan, who is the producer and CEO of Codeblack Entertainment. It’s called All-Star Comedy Jam and will air June 17 on Showtime.
But, for fans of O’Neal’sTwitter page and post-game interviews, I have some bad news. Shaq won’t be featured on All-Star Comedy Jam. He’ll be producing the show, which basically focuses on a night with a group of all-star comedians. The first episode features Cedric the Entertainer, Tommy Davidson, Kevin Hart, Aries Spears, and DeRay Davis. Cedric comes out during the intermission between each comedian, tells a few jokes and then gets to the next comedian.
D.L. Hughley will play the same role as Ced in the second Showtime comedy special, which will tape at the 13th annual American Black Film Festival on June 26. The special also features Earthquake, Arnez J, Lavell Crawford and Mealaine Comarcho. Be sure to check it out when it debuts on Showtime January 2010.
