The Original Kings of Comedy - stars four African American comedians is directed by Spike Lee and is produced by MTV films. It was shot during the last two days of their concert on February 26th and 27th of 2000; in Charlotte Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina. These four gentlemen really go after your funny bone covering a variety of subjects from race to religion. This movie was so successful that there were many other movies made by other comedians with the same premise.
The comics that star in this movie are well known and brilliant with their deliveries. There are lots of behind the scene skits that are just as funny as their stage show. The comics that preformed are as follows:
Steve Harvey - is the master of ceremonies and strays from his usual clean cut comedy. The TV shows that we are accustomed to seeing him on is the G version. We get to see the rated R Steve Harvey and he is funny as heck.
D.L. Hughley - follows Steve Harvey and really gives him a run for his money. D.L. Hughley is witty, sharp and comes in strong. His comedy is very racy and raises an eyebrow or two. This is also a giant step away from his weekly PG-13 sitcom.
Cedric the Entertainer - enters as the third comedian to take the stage and boy or boy does he bring it. Cedric the Entertainer has a certain old school style of story telling, that make you laugh until you cry.
Bernie Mac - the final comedian in this non-stop tummy tickling show, hits us with his usual style of short upper-cutters. By keeping his jokes short and straight to the point. Sprinkling a little profanity here and there; but not raunchy. Bernie Mac keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next funny to come.
