Def Comedy heads to Blighty

After years of watching fuzzy copies of ‘Def Comedy Jam' borrowed from friends who picked up bootleg copies from places like 125th Street in Harlem, the popular comedy show heads to the UK for the first time. Def Comedy Jam is responsible for launching the careers of many comedians we know and love today including Dave Chapelle, Martin Lawrence, Bernie Mac and Chris Tucker.

 Rap mogul Russell Simmons, who created the show, is scheduled to come along for the trip to introduce his new breed of comedy stars, which includes Patrice O’Neal, Capone and Tony Roberts. In traditional fashion, tracks will be spun by popular New York, DJ, Kid Capri. The hip-hop pioneer says, “Def Comedy Jam has introduced some of the greatest urban comics to the American audience. I’m proud to discover talented, new comedians who are ready to take the next step in their careers. The comedians we’re bringing to London are my favorites. I promise you, they will blow the house down!”
Judging by the popularity of comedy events in the UK I’m inclined to agree. The tour will commence in Manchester on Tuesday 16th September, followed by a date in Birmingham on the 17th, winding down at the Brixton Academy on September 20th. Tickets are priced at £33.50 for regional dates and £34.50 for the London date. Visit for further details.
