“Comic View on BET coming at you six nights a week, get your laugh on…” I cannot tell you how much joy that show brought to my life as a kid. That was practically family programming in my house. And the jokes told on “Comic View” were often the topic of conversation at school the next day. And even though I realized, as the years progressed, that the show didn’t have the same draw it once did, I was surprised to see tat BET got rid of it.
But today, I’m happily though trepidatiously reporting that BET has decided to bring the stand up comedy show back to the airwaves.
Veteran Queen of Comedy, Sommore will serve as the host, introducing an entirely new class of comedians to the world.
I say with trepidation because a part of me wonders how successful the show will be in today’s market. Everybody’s a YouTube star these days. But who knows Arsenio came back after 20 years and he’s doing quite well. You never know it could happen.
What do you think, will the relaunch of Comic View be successful? Will you watch?
Take a look at the new host Sommore explaining what you can expect from this new season in the video below.
