The show features stand-up performances in a variety of styles from known and up-and-coming comics discovered at All Def Digital's live weekly showcase and covers a wide range of topics.

Smoove, Bill Bellamy and many more. "Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam" aired on HBO from 1992 to 1997 and returned in 2006, followed last year by the special "All Def Comedy."

ALL DEF COMEDY will be executive produced by Russell Simmons and Stan Lathan, along with Chris Conti and Jeru Tillman; directed by Stan Lathan.
