Comedy Jumps On Gospel Music Channel

A few weeks ago we reported that comedian Jonathan Slocumb was about to drop his new clean comedy show on BET J titled Ha! Stand-up for Clean Comedy. Well, it seems that since the BET network is now launching a gospel comedy version titled BET Gospel Comic View - A Time to Laugh, (and it will be hosted by Gospel singer Vickie Winans) it seems there is no room for the new Jonathan Slocumb show. So, this means that the show had to move, and it did to the Gospel Music Channel. The new comedy show will debut on March 7th. The new family friendly series will feature stand-up comics, sketches, and bits from the clean comedy scene. Ha! will be hosted by Slocumb, who frequently opens for Bill Cosby. So far, we hear the line-up will feature comedians Lisa Alvarado, Michael Joiner, Leighann Lord, Horace “HB” Sanders, Angel Gaines, Taylor Mason, Ron G.,and Ron Baker Jr. Ha! will debut as a special on Sat. March 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT and will then be seen as shorts interspersed throughout the GMC schedule.
