A Moment In Comedy History With... Reginald Hudlin!

Here is the first clip of a new series titled "A Moment In Comedy History With..." where we will examine major points in comedy history that the media didn't cover or something that may have been overlooked. This new series will look at what was overlooked or passed over.

Here is an interview with Director, writer, and producer Reginald Hudlin who was the original creator, writer and director (his brother Warrington was the film's Producer) of the House Party film.

In case you are unaware, Hudlin’s film House Party was originally a thesis for school he made while attending Harvard and the short thesis ended up as a feature film that was released in 1990.

The feature film ended up as an instant classis while also launching the careers of Kid & Play, Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Robin Harris, A J Johnson, Darryl “Chill” Mitchell, Full Force, and many others.

We got a chance to sit down with Hudlin to discuss the film (since it is the 20 year anniversary of the release of House Party) and we discovered lots of interesting things that occurred in the development of the film- especially how Will Smith almost landed in the film! Imagine that!

Check out the interview!
