Prime Video released the official trailer for Phat Tuesdays: The Era of Hip Hop Comedy, the new docuseries that celebrates the untold story of Black comedians at The Comedy Store in ’90s Los Angeles, from Phat Tuesdays creator Guy Torry and director Reginald Hudlin. All three episodes of the Amazon Original series will premiere exclusively on Prime Video on Friday, February 4 in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Phat Tuesdays: The Era of Hip Hop Comedy features some of today’s most famous comedians and personalities, including Anthony Anderson, Tichina Arnold, Nick Cannon, Dave Chappelle, Snoop Dogg, Cedric the Entertainer, Tiffany Haddish, Steve Harvey, Lil Rel Howery, Regina King, Jo Koy, Luenell, Flame Monroe, Jay Pharoah, Craig Robinson, JB Smoove, Chris Tucker, Kym Whitley, and more, and tells the unbelievable story of how Guy Torry moved mountains to launch an all-Black comedy night at The Comedy Store.
What started as an experiment in ’90s Los Angeles turned into a must-see, hilarious experience, elevating Black voices to have their turn on the stage. In addition to Torry and Hudlin, Byron Phillips also executive produces, along with Jeff Hasler, Brian Lovett, and Jeff Bumgarner for Original Productions, and Kelsey Grammer and Tom Russo for Grammnet Productions. Joshua Firosz, Darren Toon for Original Productions, and Jordan McMahon for Grammnet Productions serve as co-executive producers.
Loaded with exclusive interviews with comedians and celebrities who were there – either performing on stage or in the audience – and never-before-seen footage of legendary comedy sets from back in the day, Phat Tuesdays: The Era of Hip Hop Comedy is the inspiring story of how a little experiment to help Black comedians following the tragedy of the 1992 LA riots turned into a triumphant must-see experience. The showcase regularly brought together people from all walks of life – icons and ex-cons, stars and starlets, pros and regular joes – for one purpose, laughter, and became the most popular comedy show in Hollywood during the ’90s.
Phat Tuesdays: The Era of Hip Hop Comedy is produced by Amazon Studios, Original Productions, Phat Tuesday Productions, and Grammnet Productions.
