Stand Up Comedy Special To Release On VOD May 4th And ALLBLK This Summer
AMC Networks’ newly relaunched streaming service, ALLBLK, partnered with its sister brand, RLJE Films, released today “Lil Duval’s Living My Best Life,” comedy special set to premiere on video on demand (VOD) Tuesday, May 4th. The special will also stream on ALLBLK this summer.
Building off of his wildly successful 2018 single, “Smile (Living My Best Life),” the Jacksonville, Florida native employs his special brand of humor as he takes an intimate and hilarious look at life, sex, relationships, and the world in his first stand-up special. Filmed before a star-studded, live audience in Atlanta, Georgia – the hourlong special features appearances from actress Bresha Webb (NBC’s Marlon), comedians Gary “G Thang” Johnson and Navaris “Navv” Greene, and social media star Pretty Vee.
Born Roland Powell in the Florida county that inspired his stage name, Lil Duval has starred and appeared in several films and TV shows including Meet the Blacks, Grow House, The Trap, BET’s Tales, MTV’s Guy Code, and VH1’s Hip Hop Squares. The multihyphenate has also seen great success in the music industry. Aside from “Smile” – the cultural phenomenon for which the music video has received over 47 million views to date – Duval’s music catalog also includes hit singles “Pull Up,” “Black Men Don’t Cheat,” “Nasty,” and “Don’t Worry Be Happy.”
Lil Duval’s Living My Best Life is written by Lil Duval and directed by Chet Brewster. Eric Tomosunas, Russell L. Johnson, Kevin Harewood, Alan Grunblatt and Clay Evans serve as executive producers. The special is produced by Comedy Collaborate Productions in association with Swirl Films, Purpose Music Group and eOne Music.
