LOS ANGELES, CA – Comedy Dynamics has announced that they’re releasing Arsenio Hall’s one-hour comedy special, Smart & Classy through their audio distribution system consisting of Sirius XM, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Pandora and more on October 30, 2020.
In his first stand-up special, Arsenio Hall discusses getting older, the changing times and culture, social issues and even bothersome baby toes. The special was directed by Brian Volk-Weiss, who also executive produced alongside Cisco Henson and Arsenio Hall.
Arsenio Hall is a comedian best know for The Arsenio Hall Show, which ran from 1989-1994, and was rebooted in 2013 for one season. Alongside his television career, Arsenio has appeared in Coming To America, Martial Law, and Harlem Nights. He was also the side kick for the late Alan Thicke on his talk show, Thicke of the Night.
“Traveling and doing stand-up again was an incredible experience. From DC to San Jose, I had a ball ... and I already miss it. I can’t wait for society to return to normal (Covid-19) so I can start working on my next special,” said Arsenio Hall.
“It was an absolute blast to produce this special with Arsenio for Netflix, and we’re proud to be releasing the album to a new audience that prefers audio streaming,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
