The six-episode season stand-up series will begin in December.
All Def Comedy started as a one-off last November but now HBO has decided to go ahead with a 6 episode series which will be taped October 10-11 at the Avalon Theatre in Los Angeles.
The show will feature stand-up performances from up-and-coming comedians.
“I have witnessed firsthand how the most cutting-edge, seemingly alternative comics become the driving forces in mainstream comedy,” Simmons said. “I’m thankful to HBO for allowing me to give these new voices access to mainstream audiences everywhere.”All Def Comedy also will be available on HBO Now, HBO Go, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals. Simmons and Stan Lathan are producing with Chris Conti and Jeru Tillman. Lathan is directing.
