NEW YORK – June 13, 2019 – Lavell Crawford is back to debut his new comedy special LAVELL CRAWFORD: NEW LOOK, SAME FUNNY!, premiering Saturday, July 6 at 10:35 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. Filmed at the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre in San Antonio, Crawford is funnier – and skinnier – than ever.

His numerous television appearances include Better Call Saul, New Girl, Workaholics and Breaking Bad along with his previous standup special on SHOWTIME, LAVELL CRAWFORD: HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS.
