Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam Comes to The Wilbur

WHAT: On Saturday, January 9, 2016, Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.

3 years ago, 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.

The ALL STAR COMEDY JAM tour line-up will include: tour Host LaVar Walker, fresh off his run on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” as well as Bill Bellamy,comedy legend and star of BET’s “Mr. Box Office”, Tony Roberts, known as “The Comedians Comedian,”and guest star on ABC’s new comedy “Uncle Buck” and Deon Cole, “The Conan O’Brian Show” and “Blackish.”

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, the ALL STAR COMEDY JAM brand has showcased many of the top urban comedians in the country and has spawned 7 highly popular 1-hour television specials. These specials have aired annually since 2009 and has become one the highest-rated comedy specials on cable. The television specials have been seen by over 5 million viewers.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 Codeblack 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.
