Hide ya kids, hide ya wives, comedian DeRay Davis is coming for your Instagram photos on his new show, Joking Off. No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. On Wednesday April 1, the veteran host will be sounding off on the new MTV2 show, along with a panel of other jokesters and social media stars to say the things you’re always thinking when you’re scrolling through your timeline and see some utterly ridiculous posts.
“Joking Off” is “Whose Line Is It” meets “Wild’n Out” meets Rob Dyrdek’s show, it’s just crazy,” the Chicago native told HipHollywood. “I would say it’s live commentary or televised commentary under someones Instagram page.”
Added Davis who was last seen hosting “Mind of a Man” on GSN, “This was already a trained that was moving … and they said we got this show going come and meet us, and I basically said if you do this show with anybody else the show is going to be horrible, and they were like you’re right.”
And DeRay is definitely on the verge of breaking big this year with his guest turn on the hot Fox series “Empire” and with is upcoming roles in Barbershop 3 and Meet the Blacks starring Mike Epps, Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer.
In the meantime you can catch him on “Joking Off” Wednesday’s at 11pm ET/PT on MTV2.
