Brandon T. Jackson to perform in Southfield

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Comedy stars are coming to shine at AMC's Star Southfield Theatre Complex. The Comedy Zone, a national, live-comedy theater chain, will soon be opening next door to Southfield's AMC Movie Theatre. It is the first of the chain's 65 U.S. venues to be located in Michigan.

The Comedy Zone will feature celebrity comics from all over the country. With weekly shows that include nationally touring acts, it hopes to establish the city of Southfield as Metro Detroit's premier venue on the live comedy circuit, according to a press release.

The club's debut show, "Charlie Murphy's Acid Trip," is expected to set the stage for a line-up of hilarious star acts to follow in coming months.

The Comedy Zone's grand opening shows, Thursday through Saturday, June 6-8, will kick off with a three-night engagement with world-renowned comedian, writer and actor Charlie Murphy, and his show "Charlie Murphy's Acid Trip." Comedian Freez Luv, best known for his role as Hector in the television sitcom Malcolm & Eddie (1996-1998), will open the show.

Murphy has headlined sold-out shows around the globe. He spent several years performing various critically-acclaimed tours with fellow comics Joe Rogan, John Heffron, Mike Epps and former fellow Chappelle Show cast members Bill Burr and Donnell Rawlings. His headlining tour, "I Will Not Apologize," was released on DVD and premiered on Comedy Central in the number one slot.
