NEW YORK, February 7, 2013 – The man behind the “Original Kings of Comedy” takes us to Miami for some hot and heavy stand-up from a group of racy comics when the world premiere of “Walter Latham’s Comedy After Dark” debuts on COMEDY CENTRAL on Sunday, February 24 at 12:30 a.m. ET/PT.
Filmed in an intimate VIP setting at a popular Miami night club, celebrities Jenna Jameson, Rosa Acosta, Carolina Catalino, and hip hop diva Trina host an evening of comedy from comedians Kelly Walker, Steve Brown, Damon Williams, Howie Bell, Darius Bradford and headliner Michael Blackson. World class DJ Irie provides the soundtrack for this sexy comedy experience.
Leading up to the on-air premiere, the COMEDY CENTRAL Stand-Up Web site will feature preview clips from the special.
Business mogul Walter Latham created and produced the “Kings of Comedy” tour and the award-winning and extremely successful “The Original Kings of Comedy” film. Latham also created and produced “The Queens of Comedy” and “The Original Latin Kings of Comedy.” In addition to the “Kings” tours, he has promoted the personal concert tours of several popular comedians, including Chris Rock, Chris Tucker and Martin Lawrence.
Latham partnered with YouTube on a new comedy channel that launched in July 2012 and hosts a half-dozen comedy shows with various artists and comedians. The channel brings urban comedy to digital programming 24/7, and features content from Latham’s past productions as well as new content and original programs.
“Walter Latham’s Comedy After Dark” is executive produced by Latham and Robert Stein.
