After rescheduling his eighth annual April Fools Comedy Jam twice due to COVID-19 restrictions, comedian and event producer Rip Micheals is excited to announce the newly branded Fall Back Comedy Jam coming Friday September 24, 2021. Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY hosts the monumental line-up featuring comedy heavyweights including Mo’Nique, D.C. Young Fly, Lil Duval, Arnez J, Brandon T. Jackson, and Zoie Fenty aka GotDamnZo.
Known for his jaw-dropping antics on MTV’s hit show Wild, ‘N Out, master of ceremonies Rip Micheals has also enlisted musical guests 2 Chainz and Busta Rhymes to close out the show. Never before has a comedy and music line-up of this magnitude appeared on one stage at Barclays Center. Tickets start at $30 and are available now on Ticketmaster.com. A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to a local charity.
Creating opportunities for his peers is something that has always been important to the multi-hyphenate, but even more so now due to the pandemic. “With everything that’s happened in the world over the past year, we need laughter now more than ever”, said Rip Micheals. “We also need to bring businesses back and make them stronger than they were before. I’ve been blessed to be able to create financial opportunities for people and for my peers not only with this show, but also with opening Starz, a minority owned comedy club in Long Island, and with my new TV show Urban Eats & Treats. We as performers also want to get back on the stage and do what we love.”

Hosted by Rip Micheals with performances by Mo’Nique, DC Young Fly, Lil Duval, Arnez J, Brandon T. Jackson, Jess Hilarious, Zoie Fenty, Spanky Hayes, Busta Rhymes and 2 Chainz:
