Def Comedy Jam

In dark times, the world needed a lift. So, Cedric The Entertainer stepped up and answered the call, hosting the iconic Def Comedy Jam programme for a special digital episode, featuring over 30 of the world’s favourite comedians.

HOME DELIVERY OF DEF COMEDY JAM’S HEALING THROUGH LAUGHTER MEGA SHOW

Airing live on both Twitch and Facebook, Def Comedy Jam Healing Through Laughter, was enjoyed by over 1 million people, raising over $80,000 that went towards buying supplies for the most vulnerable communities currently impacted by COVID-19.

Industry-leading remote content production

To ensure the comedic connections landed, with multiple performers injecting their talents in and out of the programme live from living rooms across the country, Def Comedy Jam called on PUSH to deliver a remotely operated digital streaming solution.
