Watch The Official Trailer for Def Comedy Jam's 25th Anniversary Special
“That’s why we hate you lil motherfuckers”
A few weeks back, Netflix revealed that it had summoned the legends of Def Comedy Jam for a 25th-anniversary special that promised to bring damn-near every one of the institution’s talents back to the stage for a rare and unforgettable salute.
The scroll of names seemed ambitious, but today, with the release of the special’s first official trailer, it appears they’ve made good. Heavyweights like Dave Chappelle, Cdric The Entertainer, Katt Williams, Bill Bellamy, Martin Lawrence, Craig Robinson and Tracy Morgan make appearances alongside vintage clips from the vault with long scrolls through a crowd comprising familiar faces like Jesse Williams and Larry Wilmore. Def Comedy Jam 25 hits Netflix next Tuesday, September 26th. Chappelle (essentially the trailer’s co-lead with Cedric, shaking his fist at the new generation of comedy) is currently on the third night of a 17-show residency at The Warner Theatre in his hometown of Washington, DC.
