Guy Torry Talks Phat Tuesdays Comparisons To BET’s ‘Comic View’, HBO’s ‘Def Comedy Jam’, And More!

Posted Feb 7, 2022

In this exclusive interview we conduct with Guy Torry and Executive Producer Reggie Hudlin, we discuss the early comparisons of Phat Tuesdays to the legendary HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and BET’s Comic View. Torry talks how the show was able to get started and more. Hudlin speaks about how the two came together for this iconic project.

If you are not familiar, Prime Video has released the documentary which includes interviews from Anthony Anderson, Tiffany Haddish, Steve Harvey, Regina King, and many more.

Its Black history month and Phat Tuesdays tells the unbelievable black history moment of how Torry, moved mountains to launch an all-Black comedy night at The Comedy Store. What started as an experiment in 90’s Los Angeles turned into a breeding ground for today’s greatest comedians, elevating Black voices to have their turn on the stage.
