Festival of Laughs featuring Lavelle Crawford, Earthquake, Tony Rock, and Mark Curry
Comedian Lavell Crawford gained huge national exposure on NBC’s hit reality series Last Comic Standing. Not only did NBC take notice, promptly signing Lavell to a holding deal with the network, but also Comedy Central, offering him his own half-hour standup special, Comedy Central Presents: Lavell Crawford. Lavell’s stand-out work includes appearances on Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam, Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam on HBO and Showtime at the Apollo, to name a few.
Earthquake, known by his fans as “Quake,” is beloved in the stand-up comedy arena. His numerous television appearances on HBO, Comedy Central, BET, Showtime, and the late-night talk show circuit have won him a loyal fan base. Chosen by Whoopi Goldberg for a stand-up comedy segment on The View, Earthquake has secured a place in the heart of comedy lovers across race, culture, or social status. The “Comedian’s Favorite Comedian” currently hosts his own daily show Quake’s House on Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Radio channel on SiriusXM.
Comedian, Actor, Producer Tony Rock is the hardest working man in show business. Rock has proven to be one of television’s best hosts having played the role of ringleader on HBO’s weekly stand-up comedy series All Def Comedy, NBA TV’s The Warm Up, along with BET’s Black Card Revoked and Apollo Live, all while co-starring in his first prime-time network series, Living Biblically, on CBS.
Comedian Mark Curry is the star of Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper and Nick at Nite’s See Dad Run, while comedy-club regulars may have seen him touring with Bill Bellamy and Tommy Davidson on the Sommore’s Standing Ovation Comedy Tour.
