Who’s ready for Sommore?

According to AJC  BET’s premiere stand–up comedy series, Comic  View  is returning to the network this fall and will be hosted by “Queen of Comedy” Sommore.  Reportedly, the show will begin taping in Atlanta as early as next month. However, a venue for the program has not been announced.

Sommore, who hosted the show in 1994, will be back as the host this upcoming season.  The last time the show aired in 2008, Kevin Hart was host. (And his career has since skyrocketed.)

BET has shot “Comic View” a couple of times before, the last time around 2000 with Rickey Smiley as host.

A BET spokesman said he didn’t know where they’d shoot the show.

BET now shoots a bulk of its original programming out of Atlanta, including the the BET Hip Hop Awards, “The Game,” “Sunday Best,” “Let’s Stay Together,” “Reed Between the Lines,” “Being Mary Jane” and “Second Generation Wayans.”

I will be watching, how about you??
