SHAQUILLE O’NEAL’S ALL-STAR COMEDY
JAM
STARRING MIKE EPPS

SATURDAY, AUGUST 31 AT 8:00PM

Tickets on-sale now

Shaquille O’Neal and Jeff Clanagan, through their company, Shaq Entertainment, in partnership with AEG Live, announce Mike Epps (Welcome Home Rosco Jenkins, Hancock, Open Season 2) will host the upcoming Las Vegas performance of Shaquille O’Neal’s All-Star Comedy Jam.  The live show, taking place on Saturday, August 31 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, will be taped for a cable television special.  Tickets are on sale now at  www.Ticketmaster.com.

 

Shaquille O’Neal took ALL-STAR COMEDY JAM on the road after his NBA All-star Weekend show in Los Angeles became such a hit.   Playing to sold out crowds across the country, covering over 30 markets, proved that the ALL-STAR COMEDY JAM tour was just what audiences wanted.  Industry buzz and audience feedback is a solid indication that Shaquille O’Neal’s ALL-STAR COMEDY JAM is becoming today’s top comedy brand, much like “The Original Kings of Comedy” and “Def Comedy Jam” were in the ‘90s.

 

ALL-STAR COMEDY JAM was Shaq’s first new venture following his retirement from the NBA.  With Codeblack Enterprises as the producing and distribution partner for the filmed projects, and AEG Live producing the live shows, the ALL-STAR COMEDY JAM brand has showcased many of the top urban comedians in the country and has spawned highly popular 1-hour television specials.  These specials have aired annually since 2009 and have become one of the highest-rated comedy specials on cable.  The first three television specials have been seen by over 3 million viewers and one very special event, taped during the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles, Kevin Hart’s “Laugh At My Pain,” was filmed for theatrical release that same year and opened #1 at the box office.

Together, Shaq Entertainment and Codeblack Enterprises, have worked strategically to build the ALL-STAR COMEDY JAM brand through their filmed specials, highly successful DVD series and live shows with AEG Live.  Codeblack Enterprises, a leading company in Urban entertainment and distribution, is responsible for producing and distributing the brands filmed specials through television, online and DVD.

The ALL-STAR COMEDY JAM tour is produced by Shaq Entertainment and AEG Live.
