The event will be hosted by Corey Manning and feature comedy legends Michael Colyar, Jammin Jay Lamont, Chris Thomas, and Talent Harris. “I encourage everyone to join me and my mentors, friends, and legends in comedy as we fill the theater with side-splitting laughter," said Manning. “With the addition of an amazing performance by the legendary Chubb Rock, this will definitely be a night to remember."
