"The Comedy Get Down" featured George Lopez, D.L. Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin and Charlie Murphy together on a stand-up comedy tour. On BET, the funnymen play themselves in what the network calls a "mostly scripted" workplace comedy based on actual events from their massive arena tour. The storylines explore the personal and professional relationships of the fivesome as they deal with life on the road. That includes, among other distractions, seedy venues, pushy wives, angry baby mamas, obsessive fans, shady politicians, and demanding celebrities.
