抱持著製作《Def Comedy Jam》節目的初心，《Russell Simmons Presents: Stand-Up Live at the El Rey》誕生了！由具傳奇性的喜劇製作人羅素賽門斯與史坦拉森聯合監製，便成了個前所未見，甚至充滿嘻哈脈動的脫口喜劇節目！由演出《人生如戲》的J.B.史慕福擔綱主持，不僅透過脫口秀反映時下年輕人的流行文化，各集將結合三段嘻哈動漫內容，再加上DJ Cassidy的音樂創作。誰記得請維修工人跑一趟？因為我們即將鬧翻El Rey Theatre歷史悠久的屋頂！
From the minds that created Def Comedy Jam, Russell Simmons Presents: Stand-Up Live at the El Rey, executive produced by legendary comedy producers, Russell Simmons and Stan Lathan, is a unique stand-up show that channels a hip hop vibe! Hosted by JB Smoove (of Curb Your Enthusiasm fame), the show looks to reflect the urban culture of today’s youth through stand-up comedy. Each episode will consist of three up-and-coming hip-hop comics and will feature music created by DJ Cassidy. Someone call in the repair works, because we’re about blow the roof off LA’s historic El Rey Theatre!
