Chocolate Sundaes opened its production in 1999 when an up and coming entrepreneur, Pookey Wigington whose first love has always been comedy partnered with the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, California, to be a premiere Sunday night spot for cutting edge urban comedy. At a time when there was no comedy shows highlighting people of color, when Saturday Night Live followed only a mainstream approach, Mr. Wigington saw a need and filled it with a cutting edge nonconformist culture that spoke to the younger generations and also a representation of all colors. The success of this comedic venture has led to Chocolate Sundaes events throughout Los Angeles and the US, DVD releases and a TV special on Showtime with more to come.
