Can I Kick It

What’s better than watching ol’ school hip hop videos from the 80′s and 90′s on a projection screen? Watching it with comics that loved that era and love to laugh while looking back on hip-hop’s “awkward” phase.

Comedians: Al Jackson, Tone Bell, Joe Derosa and a rotating cast of comics will help you understand the meaning of “takin’ it back to the ol’ school” Can you kick it or not? Then get your Hammer pants and your rope chains and let’s go!

With special guest Neal Brennan.
