    The first episode of Phat Tuesdays tells the story of how Black comedians were shut out of “white” comedy clubs in the 90s, and how they found venues in South LA where Martin Lawrence, D.L. Hughley and Robin Harris showcased their talents. After the LA riots, comedian Guy Torry launched Phat Tuesdays, an all-black comedy night at the world-famous Comedy Store.

Inspirational, funny and historic stories of an era that shaped the world of comedy
I have heard the names of these King's and Queen's showcased in this series. However, I have never heard about their stories before. To hear that such a vision was created and executed so excellently in the USA, allowing persons of all genders and races at the same level is inspiring. This set the trend around the world is breathtaking.

I salute Guy for his platform and salute all those that graced the stage. The end surprise was amazing, when I travel to the USA I need to visit the comedy store.

A fun series including the history of comedy. You would wish that this series would never end.
