Standup comedy is alive and well these days as Chris Tucker,Mo’Nique and Katt Williams are all mounting comeback shows on the comedy circuit. And the comeback king, Arsenio Hall, is back on TV again after 20 years. Oprah sits down to talk about second chances with him. Norfolk State and Hampton go to war for their annual “Battle of the Bay” this weekend and in case you missed it, the BET Hip-Hop Awards re-airs over the weekend. And the much talked about, critically acclaimed (before it even comes out) “12 Years a Slave” hits the big screen starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt, Alfre Woodward and Michael Fassbender.
