Highly praised for his performance in the Netflix comedy “Dolemite Is My Name” starring opposite Eddie Murphy, Epps is generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers for being not only one of the funniest comedic actors in town, but also for his burgeoning dramatic talent. This summer, Epps released his latest standup special “Mike Epps: Only One Mike” (Netflix), and dropped his single “We Goin’ Out” featuring Big Boi and Sleepy Brown. Up next, Epps will be starring in the Netflix comedy series “The Upshaws” with Wanda Sykes, “The House Next Door,” sequel to the 2016 film “Meet The Blacks” and “Last Friday.”

In her more than 20-year career, award-winning comedienne of “Chandelier Status”, Sommore, has become a trailblazer for women in the comedy business as one of the most successful comedians in the U.S. and abroad. Sommore has been featured in a number of hit films including "Soul Plane”, "Something New", and "Friday After Next". Her all-new self-produced comedy special, "A Queen With No Spades" recently premiered on Showtime.

Having performed to sold-out audiences in all the major comedy clubs and theatres across the country, Gary Owen is one of America’s most beloved comedians, having been proclaimed by Ebony magazine as Black America’s “Favorite White Comedian”. Audiences can see Owen in his most recent comedy special, “I Got My Associates” currently on Showtime.  Last year, Owen starred in his own docuseries “The Gary Owen Show” on BET, which chronicled his dynamic and interracial family life with his wife and children in small-town Ohio. Film credits include “Meet The Blacks”, “Think Like A Man”, “Think Like A Man Too”, “Ride Along”, “Little Man”, “Daddy Day Care”, and “College”.

Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the comedic ranks and becoming one of the hottest stars in the biz today. Lavell first gained national exposure on NBC’s hit reality series “Last Comic Standing”. His television appearances include “Workaholics” (Comedy Central), “Breaking Bad” (AMC), “Chelsea Lately” (E! Entertainment), "Shaquille O'Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam" (Showtime) and “Comic View” (BET), to name a few.
