BET: 'The Comedy Get Down' with George Lopez and Cedric The Entertainer premieres tonight

BET's new series, "The Comedy Get Down" premieres tonight, October 12 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT and 10:30 p.m. C. The show is the first scripted comedy series about what really happens behind the scenes of a massive stand-up comedy tour featuring five legendary comics – George Lopez, DL Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin and Charlie Murphy.

The storylines are based on actual events that have taken place not only on their wildly successful Comedy Get Down arena tour, when the men step off the stage but throughout the 25 plus years each has been a nationally headlining comedian.

A workplace comedy at its core, the 30 minute, single-camera series explores the personal and professional relationships of these five comic titans as they navigate the challenges of life on the road: seedy venues, racist road managers, pushy wives, angry baby mamas, obsessive fans, demanding celebrities, shady politicians and more.
