Get ready for some comedy!

This Joka, a new stand-up comedy series hosted and executive produced by Will Smith is heading to Quibi. The project is a co-production of Smith’s Westbrook Media and Topgolf Studios.

The mobile short format platform acquired another title, officially adding another project to its lineup of 50-odd shows.

In the series, Smith invites a diverse lineup of up-and-coming, established, and legendary comedians, to explore the nature of comedy. The series will showcase stand-up sets, as well as one-on-one conversations, intimate interviews, and docu-style moments. 

“Will’s love and respect for stand-up comedy runs deep, and with this series on Quibi, we hope to discover, learn from, and uplift the next generation of diverse comedic talent,” said Terence Carter, co-president of Westbrook Studios.

Quibi launches on April 6.
