If you liked them on TV, you’ll love them on the road. “LAFF MOB Presents” was a hit on Showtime, so they’re taking the funny on the road this spring hitting several stops hopefully in a city near you. All the Laff Mob comics Red Grant, Rudy Rush, Roz G, Mark Viera and Alex Scott are on board and will be serving up the laughs at various venues around the country. Bob Sumner, the man who brought you HBO’s Def Comedy Jam is also behind Laff Mob, with producer and manager Arthur Spivak. “I’m really excited to introduce the best of the next generation of Comedy All-Stars,” Sumner says.
Here’s a little more about the Laff Mob comics:
Grant hosted “The Pimp Chronicles II Tour” with Katt Williams, and appears in the the Showtime special “Caught Red Handed,” part of the Laff Mob series on Showtime.
You already know Rush from “Showtime At The Apollo” and his Laff Mobb Presents Showtime special “From Harlem to Hollywood.” You’ve also seen him on his own Comedy Central special and is the co-host on the nationally syndicated radio program, “Afternoons with Doug and Dede.”
Roz G got her start as a finalist on NBC’s hit reality competition “Last Comic Standing.” With “I Ain’t Got Jokes…I Got Problems” as her true-to-life tag line, Roz is now headlining in her own Laff Mobb special for Showtime.
Viera is the star of his own Laff Mobb Presents special called “Tales of a Nuyorican.” He also appears on “Martin Lawrence Presents “1st Amendment Stand Up.”
As a newcomer, Scott won second place in the “DC Comedian of the Year” contest. Since then, Scott has appeared on BET’s Comic View and done standup engagements around the country.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
