This morning we woke up to the news in our email box that comedian Tony Roberts (probably most famous for Shaq All-Star Comedy Jam, Def Comedy Jam, and Byron Allen’s Mr. Box Office) has just joined the new ABC comedy Uncle Buck that stars Mike Epps and Regina Hall. According to our sources, Roberts is filming for several days here in Los Angeles and should be done on Monday, since he started this past week. Word is he will be featured in several episodes with the possibilty of more.
That’s not all for Roberts; his film Not So Fast My Tooth Is Loose is just about ready to be distributed and will be out in the market in several theaters in a couple of months and Roberts is also pitching a TV pilot that we hear is about to be picked up by a network; more on that later. Finally, Roberts and comedian Eric Blake are about to film Need Your Ass Beat live on stage in the fall.
Uncle Buck will be broadcast January on ABC.
Stay tuned as the story is developing!
