(AllHipHop News) A two-hour edition of Showtime At The Apollo, hosted by Steve Harvey, will air on December 5 at 8 pm ET.

“I’m excited to be going back home to the Apollo to celebrate the history of this great theater,” said Harvey. “I have great memories from my time there, and this is going to be a homecoming party that you won’t want to miss.”

The event will feature appearances by Hip Hop legends Doug E. Fresh and Rakim as well as award-winning R&B groups Bell Biv DeVoe and En Vogue.

In addition, comedians Tracy Morgan, Mike Epps and Gabriel Iglesias will hit the iconic Harlem stage.

Of course, the world-famous Apollo Amateur Night will also be part of the broadcast.

The long-running Showtime at the Apollo is responsible for assisting in putting Lauryn Hill, D’Angelo, and many others on a national stage.
