He just shot a role in The Jay and Silent Bob Reboot film, and was also a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast. He can be seen starring in Kevin Smith’s Hollyweed, The New Negroes on Comedy Central, Historical Roasts with Jeff Ross on Netflix, and TBS’s The Last OG with Tracy Morgan.

Previously, Donnell hosted his own show as Judge Rawlings on MTV2’s Guy Court, and was a cast member on MTV2’s Guy Code. He has also appeared in a number of TV shows, including TLC’s Project Dad starring Donnell and his son, The Shaq Comedy All-Stars on Showtime, host of Staann' Dup on Starz in Black, and the hit animation Black Dynamite where he lends his voice in a recurring role as “Another Cat Named Rally”.

Donnell continues to tour heavily, performing his intelligently bold stand-up throughout the US, Europe, and the Caribbean.

In the tradition of the highly successful Roast franchise, fans will be treated to The Return Of The Roastmaster’s Invitational, a comedy competition featuring a no-holds-barred verbal boxing match in which comedians will compete head-to-head in a battle of wit and insults. Led by the Roastmaster General, Jeff Ross, and the referee/comedian Brian Moses, this Fight Club of comedy is presented in a bracket style competition where two comics in each round will face off, roast each other, and a winner is declared by a celebrity panel of judges.

Jeff Ross is a respected comedian, writer, director, and producer also known as “The Roastmaster General.”

Currently, his wildly popular live show Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross and Dave Attell is streaming on Netflix as a three-part comedy special event. The show, which was shot over three nights at the iconic Village Underground in New York, showcases the kinship that exists between these two veteran comics and highlights special guests including Amy Schumer, Bob Saget, Paul Rudd, and Michael Che.

As a regular on the Comedy Central Roasts, Jeff has roasted many stars including Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, and The President of The United States, Donald Trump. Jeff's most recent Comedy Central Roast victim was none other than Bruce Willis.

These celebrity roasts have become a mainstay in popular culture and propelled roasting into the public eye. Building on their success, Jeff launched Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battlein 2016, a competition show in which comics go mic to mic in a battle of wits. Judged by some of the best comedy minds of our generation including Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Hart, and Seth Rogen, Roast Battle, has introduced new stars and started a movement. Comedy Central has since taken the format international, producing versions of the show in Britain, Mexico and South Africa, with more international markets to come.

This past fall, Jeff took roasting back in time with the forthcoming Netflix show Historical Roasts where Abe Lincoln, Cleopatra, Freddie Mercury and many others took their turns being roasted. The series premiered in the spring of 2019.

Anjelah Johnson is bringing her More of Me tour to Just For Laughs. Time Out Chicago described her show as “filled with almost non-stop laughter” and Maxim Magazine hailed her as “uproariously funny and, in a time of great racial and political strife, oddly healing.”

Anjelah Johnson-Reyes was born and raised in San Jose, California and is of Mexican and Native American descent. In the beginning of her career, Johnson- Reyes was a professional cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders. As an Oakland Raiderette, she was named Rookie of the Year and even performed in Super Bowl XXXVII. After that year she decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting.

She became an internet sensation with her viral video, “Nail Salon” which led to many stand-up, television, and film opportunities. That same year she joined the cast of, MADtv as a series regular, which spawned another internet sensation, “Bon Qui Qui.” This original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, has been enjoyed, viewed, and replicated by over 65 million people worldwide. After recording and releasing 3 songs and 2 music videos as Bon Qui Qui, Anjelah signed a record deal with Warner Bros. Records to release a full album titled, Gold Plated Dreams, which she’s toured twice selling out both times.

In the tradition of the highly successful Roast franchise, fans will be treated to The Return Of The Roastmaster’s Invitational, a comedy competition featuring a no-holds-barred verbal boxing match in which comedians will compete head-to-head in a battle of wit and insults. Led by the Roastmaster General, Jeff Ross, and the referee/comedian Brian Moses, this Fight Club of comedy is presented in a bracket style competition where two comics in each round will face off, roast each other, and a winner is declared by a celebrity panel of judges.

Jeff Ross is a respected comedian, writer, director, and producer also known as “The Roastmaster General.”

Currently, his wildly popular live show Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross and Dave Attell is streaming on Netflix as a three-part comedy special event. The show, which was shot over three nights at the iconic Village Underground in New York, showcases the kinship that exists between these two veteran comics and highlights special guests including Amy Schumer, Bob Saget, Paul Rudd, and Michael Che.

As a regular on the Comedy Central Roasts, Jeff has roasted many stars including Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, and The President of The United States, Donald Trump. Jeff's most recent Comedy Central Roast victim was none other than Bruce Willis.

These celebrity roasts have become a mainstay in popular culture and propelled roasting into the public eye. Building on their success, Jeff launched Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battlein 2016, a competition show in which comics go mic to mic in a battle of wits. Judged by some of the best comedy minds of our generation including Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Hart, and Seth Rogen, Roast Battle, has introduced new stars and started a movement. Comedy Central has since taken the format international, producing versions of the show in Britain, Mexico and South Africa, with more international markets to come.

This past fall, Jeff took roasting back in time with the forthcoming Netflix show Historical Roasts where Abe Lincoln, Cleopatra, Freddie Mercury and many others took their turns being roasted. The series premiered in the spring of 2019.

Black Thought Presents: Delirious is the exciting new comedy series created and curated by the MC of the legendary Roots crew. Featuring the hottest new comedians, the series will look at popular culture and society through a humorous, yet poignant lens.

Tariq Trotter, better known as Black Thought, is an American rap artist and the lead singer/MC for the Philadelphia-originating hip-hop group, The Roots. A co-founder of The Roots alongside drummer Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson, Trotter is widely lauded for his rhythmically complex and reference-driven lyrical content, his sharply honed live performances, and the fluidity of his creative abilities.

The Roots’ 1999 album Things Fall Apart catapulted the group and Trotter’s poignant lyrics into the mainstream. Winning a Grammy Award for its lead single, “You Got Me” featuring Erykah Badu, Things Fall Apart garnered Trotter critical acclaim as an MC, heralded by press like Rolling Stone as the “lyricist’s lyricist”. The project also produced one of the most iconic covers in Hip Hop, solidifying The Roots as a revolutionary, deeply artistic band.

As The Roots continued to expand professionally, Trotter’s range of creative abilities became even more apparent. Under the leadership of Trotter and Thompson, The Roots began their over 10 year relationship with Jimmy Fallon as his NBC house band in 2009, starting at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and transitioning in 2014 to the house band for the new Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Their careers would see a creative explosion throughout the decade, with a slew of releases and a foray into acting by Trotter in Get On Up, a blockbuster biopic about the life of soul legend James Brown. In 2015, Trotter and Thompson took their talents to Broadway. Together they executive produced the cast album for the critically acclaimed Broadway musical Hamilton, adding to their Grammy shelf when Hamilton won “Best Musical Theater Album” in February 2016.

Trotter’s artistic evolution continues to expand and shift. In early 2017, it was announced that The Roots were partnering with Amazon for the development of an animated children’s series, while also executive producing The Rap Year Book docuseries with AMC. In the fall of 2017, Trotter also starred in HBO’s hit series The Deuce as the braggadocious pimp, Reggie Love. He would simultaneously unveil a sneaker collaboration with independent brand, Clear Weather, sold exclusively at Barneys New York.
