Despite being over 7 feet tall and over 300 lbs, Shaquille O’Neal is a bit of a jokester, well a lot of a jokester to be honest. Every year during the NBA All Star Weekend he produces a comedy show and now his love of comedy will be brought to the small screen. Shaq and friends, including Gary Owen and Godfrey will air on TruTV, the cast will comment on web videos and create their own original parodies.
“Shaquille O’Neal has such a great personality, and he really has a lot of fun with the format and the material in this new truTV series,” said TruTV EVP and COO Marc Juris. “This show is going to be a great fit with TruTV’s comedic shows like Impractical Jokers and the upcoming Killer Karaoke.”
“I’ve always tried to entertain people,” added O’Neal, “and I know this show will deliver big laughs.”
The show has been greenlit for 10 episodes.
