Just 2 weeks following the national release of his latest DVD,Â âAkintunde: The Whole TruthâÂ into major retail and online outlets, Christian Comedian Akintunde has already filmed his follow up project,Â âThe Rebirth of Comedy Presents: The Heavy Hittersâ.
Akintunde joined forces with fellow Comedians, Marcus D. Wiley (co-host of The Yolonda Adams Show), Chinitta Morris a.k.a. Chocolate (BETâs Comic View / HBOâs Def Comedy Jam), and Dove Award âComedian Of The Yearâ, Bone Hampton (ABCâs The View) for a comedy special that will double as a national tour – set to kick off later this year.
The production took place in front of a packed house at Jacksonvilleâs Impact Church (formerly Faith Christian Center). The multi-camera television production saw the comedians tackling heavy subjects – while sharing personal testimonies on everything from faith, parenting, living single, relationships, and diabetes. The show featured a rousing musical performance by Christian Recording Artist, Big Redd with featured band, Bass Man Sam & Spiritual Chocolate. The special was created to show the exciting world of stand up comedy that is rapidly growing in forward thinking churches all over the world..
The Rebirth of Comedy Presents: The Heavy Hitters is Executive Produced by Akintunde Warnock, Eunissa Warnock and George Davis. The 5 plus camera shoot was directed by Chris Fanning and featured original music by DJ Ak.
