What do Dave Chappelle, Chris Tucker, and Martin Lawrence have in common? They all launched their careers on HBO's Def Comedy Jam. The Russell Simmons–created show shook things up when it debuted in 1992, featuring little-known black comedians who went on to become megastars. Twenty-five years later, Russell is reviving the sidesplitting series with a new title (All Def Comedy), a new host (Tony Rock, younger brother of Chris), and a new roster of talent. On December 1, I expect to laugh all night long.
