Turner's truTV today announced the premiere date for its upcoming series Laff Mobb's Laff Tracks, set to debut on Wednesday, January 3 at 11:00PM ET/PT. Hosted by DJ and comedian Cipha Sounds, the series flips stand-up comedy on its head, and introduces the next generation of comedians to audiences. The series was originally launched as part of truTV's short form comedy series Rachel Dratch's Late Night Snack, and received a 12-episode first season order earlier this year.

In each half-hour episode, Cipha welcomes a rotating cast of comedians who perform hilarious stand-up routines. In a playful reinvention of the standard stand-up format, each joke is heightened with actors bringing them to life in over-the-top visual recreations. At the end of each episode, Sounds will introduce the "Joke of the Night," with one final comedian bringing down the house with the biggest laughs of the episode.

"Twenty-five years ago, I played a major part in a comedy movement that helped change the comedy game forever," said Sumner. "Laff Mobb's Laff Tracks is sure to be another game changer."

The series will feature appearances from Mark Viera, Rachel Feinstein, Yamaneika Saunders, Nate Jackson, Ayanna Dookie, Barry Brewer, DC Ervin, Davell Taylor, Tony Baker, Chaunte Wayans, Trey Elliot, Daniel Weingarten, Mike Troy, Alycia Cooper, Tyree Elaine, Reyna Amaya, and many more.

"I feel honored and privileged to be the host of this incredible show," said Cipha. "To work with the legend Bob Sumner is a dream come true. We are really going to REMIX the way you watch comedy!!!"

The series is produced by American Chainsaws Entertainment with Royal Malloy, Colt Straub, Duke Straub, and Mark Therrien serving as executive producers. Cipha also serves as co-executive producer alongside executive producers Edgar Cutino and Jamal Dedeaux, and Laff Mobb Entertainment's Bob Sumner, Arthur Spivak, and Carlos Koustas.
