Sean "P. Diddy"
Combs is taking his Bad Boy brand name into the world of stand-up comedy, as
he prepares to start filming The Bad Boys of Comedy.
The Bad Boys of
Comedy is being produced in conjunction with the producers of 2000’s The
Original Kings of Comedy, an immensely successful tour and movie that helped
make Steve Harvey, DL Hugely Cedric The Entertainer and Bernie Mack household
For five days, Diddy and
crew will film seven up-coming comedians in Brooklyn, New York.
Each show will present 7
different comedians handpicked by Diddy, who will also serve as a host.
The shows will feature new
stars and future sensations -- from Tony Roberts and Gerald Kelly to Smokey,
Ronnie Jordan and Rob Stapleton.
The filming of the event
is invite only and is being taped at an undisclosed historical theater near
the Fulton Mall on July 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd.
