Affion Crockett Presents: Microphone Masters Now Live on Black Experience On Xfinity and Xumo Play

New York, NY

Comcast NBCUniversal teams up with Affion Crockett and Delmar Washington to premiere new, innovative comedy series Affion Crockett Presents: Microphone Masters, featuring three up-and-coming comedians with behind-the-scenes interviews, now available exclusively on Comcast’s Black Experience on Xfinity channel, X1 and Xumo.

Launched in 2021, Black Experience on Xfinity features the ultimate in Black storytelling from Black programming partners and film studios and has released a variety of original documentaries and specials, like Microphone Masters, showcasing Black talent and content creators. The Black Experience on Xfinity Channel is the first-of-its-kind, curated destination of Black content, endorsed by the African American Film Critics Association.

The premiere special features three emerging comedians - Ron G., Kanisha Buss and Brandon Lewis. All three featured comedians have already left a mark in their growing careers - including Kanisha guest appearing on Laugh Out Loud by Kevin Hart, alongside networks such as Comedy Central and MTV2, and Brandon hosting Roast Me, and All Def Digital with over 4 million subscribers. Affion Crockett Presents: Microphone Masters is the first ever standalone comedy special for each comedian. Beyond the planned individual sets, each comedian’s one-hour broadcast also includes behind the scenes footage of the pre-taped show filmed in Los Angeles, as well as one-on-one interviews for a more intimate and personal look at all three performers.

Delmar Washington and Affion Crockett lead the production of the innovative series, with Affion presenting each special. A graduate of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, Delmar is an accomplished writer, director and producer. He has worked with Dave Chappelle documenting his various global tours and behind-the-scenes material for his Netflix specials. He also directed the groundbreaking sci-fi thriller OUTSIDERS, which debuted at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival. Most recently, Delmar directed award-winning film Black Girl Missing starring Garcelle Beauvais for Lifetime. Affion has an extensive career that expands over 20 years as an actor, writer, comedian, dancer, rapper, and director. Affion’s first appearance on HBO's Def Comedy Jam demonstrated his crystal-clear impressions and physical comedy, which continued into his sketch work on MTV's Wild'n Out. He has gone on to appear on various hit shows from HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm to ABC's Black-ish. Affion and Delmar collaborated on Affion’s first ever comedy special, Mirror II Society, that had its debut on Peacock in December 2021. His last film, A Hip Hop Story premiered to rave reviews and is showing now in AMC theaters across the country.
