“COMEDY ON THE EDGE"
Before "Def Jam", "Comic View" or the Black Comedy Boom, Darryl Littleton produced and hosted a 30 minute stand up show featuring sketches and musical guests. The year was 1990 and this lost gem introduced his character of "D'Militant" to the airwaves. "Comedy On the Edge" was also the launching pad for Jamie Foxx, D L Hughley, Yvette Wilson, Buddy Lewis, Bill Torres, Lester Barrie, Lance Caruthers, Robin Montague, Hope Flood, Wan Dexter, Greg Pittman, Craig Frazier, Kiki Washington and Jedda Jones. Restored and re-edited, the full first season is now available on Tubi.
Darryl Littleton is a gifted comic who knows how to write and that's very very rare; there are brilliant black comics out there but most are not writers and you have brilliant black writers who are not comedians. Thank you Darryl for working so hard to capture our history. You make us all proud.
