Laugh Out Loud, Kevin Hart's comedy brand and multi-platform entertainment company, announced today its first original solo stand-up special, "Affion Crockett: Mirror II Society" is coming to LOL Network streaming and audio channels on November 13.
From the hilarious mind of comedian, multi-hyphenate entertainer Affion Crockett ("The Wedding Ringer", "Pixels", "A Haunted House"), "Mirror II Society" marks the first long-form special from the accomplished actor, writer, dancer, rapper, comedian, and Internet sensation (50 million views on YouTube) offering a relentless barrage of jokes and physical humor as he dives into his hilarious experiences growing up as a dancer, coming to grips with getting older, relationships, politics and much more.
"I'm thrilled and honored to be the first comedian to launch a solo stand-up special on Laugh Out Loud," said Affion Crockett. "We put a ton of work into this for the culture and being able to partner with LOL to bring 'Mirror II Society' to the masses is a vibe. Plus, Kevin Hart promised me a Lambo if this does numbers."
Consumers can watch, listen and laugh with Crockett across the robust LOL Network including: Pluto TV, XUMO and SiriusXM starting November 13th – with additional rollouts to continue through the year.
"Affion's unique mix of dynamic humor and infectious energy is a breath of fresh air, and we couldn't be more excited to launch our first long-form stand-up special with Affion," said Kevin Hart, CEO of Laugh Out Loud.
