“Livestreaming on CEEK is a game-changing way to share comedy with the world,” Hughley said. “At a time when people are stuck inside and trying to cope with the unknown, laughter is needed now more than ever. I’m excited to work with CEEK VR and share ‘The Laugh Experience’ with everyone. Virtual comedy clubs are the future of entertainment.”
Hughley, an original ‘King of Comedy,’ political commentator and syndicated radio show host, will headline the evening of punchy and piquant humor from an all-star comedy line-up featuring “Real Husbands of Hollywood” and BET Awards head writer Chris Spencer and comedians Bo Dacious and Ryan Davis.
