Bob Sumner Will Produce LAFF MOB'S LAFF TRACKS on truTV Photo Bob Sumner Will Produce LAFF MOB'S LAFF TRACKS on truTV
by TV News Desk - Dec 23, 2019

If you don't know who the soft spoken/humble spirit Bob Sumner is, you must have been hiding under a rock for the past 25 years. Sumner was the co-creator of HBO's Def Comedy Jam, where he worked behind the scenes recruiting the best unrecognized and/or just starting out comedians in the world. As a producer (and many times talent scout), industry influencers consider Sumner a “Career Maker” in the world of comedy. He is often referred to as the “Black” Lorne Michaels (creator of Saturday Night Live and other comedy television shows), others equate him to music industry's Clarence Avant. Either way, he is definitely a force to be reckoned with, and his comic discoveries are legendary.
