20 October 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Shaquille O’Neal’s Jersey Legends Productions and global entertainment company, Hartbeat, announced the stand-up comedy show, All Star Comedy Jam, at Resorts World Theatre inside Resorts World Las Vegas over Big Game Weekend 2024. The comedy showcase will head to Las Vegas on Saturday, 10 February 2024, hosted by Deon Cole and featuring performances by D.L. Hughley, Earthquake, and Desi Banks, with many more comedians to be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale to the public today Friday, 20 October at 10 a.m. PST.

Originally launched in 2009 as a collaboration between Shaquille and Hartbeat President & Chief Distribution Officer Jeff Clanagan, All Star Comedy Jam is known for being the national stage to comedy’s heaviest hitters and up-and-coming comedians. Last year’s event was no different, featuring performances from a star-studded lineup including Bill Bellamy, Michael Blackson, Mo’Nique, Earthquake, and DeRay Davis.

“Collaborating with Shaq to bring this iconic comedy showcase to life with Hartbeat has been a remarkable journey and I’m thrilled to enter this exciting next chapter as All Star Comedy Jam makes its return to Las Vegas,” said Jeff Clanagan, President & Chief Distribution Officer of Hartbeat. “I’m looking forward to expanding our relationship with AEG Presents and Resorts World as we deliver another can’t-miss weekend of comedy and culture.”

This year’s event is set to be bigger and better than ever as it takes center stage at the 5,000-capacity theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas.
