Codeblack Entertainment & Shaq's Comedy Jam The New Kings Of Comedy!

We just received confirmation that this past weekend’s Shaq’s NBA All -Star Comedy Jam in Dallas produced by Codeblack Entertainment generated the highest 2 day gross ticket sales for an urban comedy show since The Original Kings of Comedy which began its huge run in the 1995.

So far, the Original Kings Of Comedy Tour is the highest grossing comedy tour of all time, but that window looks like it’s shrinking quickly. As we all know, the Kings featured Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, Cedric The Entertainer, and the late Bernie Mac.

Why do we say that? Well, the two day gross for All Star Jam was $880,676.00, and this was for just TWO days. We should also note here that the show would have crossed 1 million dollars if it had not been for the snow as Dallas was hit with a snow storm on Thursday and the storm dampened ticket sales.

But with the projected numbers that has been produced form this past weekend, ASJC is on its way to become the next Kings of Comedy franchise.

We also discovered that Codeblack Entertainment is planning a fall comedy tour of about 15-20 dates across the country, and also plans for another huge comedy show for Super Bowl weekend next year, and NBA All Star Weekend which is in Los Angeles.

In case you missed it the two day comedy shows featured comedians Mo’Nique, Mike Epps, DeRay Davis, Kevin Hart, Bruce Bruce, George Wilborn, Paul Mooney, Corey Holcomb, Michael Blackson, and Red Grant, not to mention all of the surprise guests.

Stay tuned for more as we will have some backstage access for you from the show and more!

Kevin Hart Filming ANOTHER Stand Up Special!

We discovered from a very reliable source that comedian Kevin Hart is about to film ANOTHER stand up special next month for Codeblack Entertainment!

Last year Kevin Hart filmed a I'm A Grown Little Man for cable television and the special was one of the highest rated specials for cable. This year we hear that Hart is in plans to pull it off again, and this time it looks like the show will be filmed in Cleveland.

No official word from Hart's camp on what the new show will be titled or what network the show will be on but it would be safe to assume that since Codeblack Entertainment has The Shaq Comedy All Stars Comedy Jam on the Showtime network it might just land there.

Either way, its a good look for Hart as he is in the midst of selling out shows all across the country.
