 AKINTUNDE Comedy Showcase World Changers Church

ATLANTA, GA (December 5, 2011) - Emerging American comedy star Akintunde (aka "Ak") will present a night of laughs the whole family can enjoy, along with a special presentation of his vibrant comedy, on December 9th at World Changers Church International. Showcasing his popular brand of comedy that's produced wall-to-wall laughter from enthralled audiences around the country, Akintunde is giving his home state of Georgia a night to remember, with this free comedy showcase, which will be recorded live, for his long-anticipated DVD.

A thrilling stage performer whose zany but clean humor has made him an in-demand comedian

with all types of audiences, Akintunde recently co-hosted the 27th Annual Stellar Awards nominations announcements/concert event together with the platinum-selling gospel duo Trin-i-

Tee 5:7, which was broadcast live from Nashville on Saturday, October 29 on Gospel Music Channel (GMC) affiliates across the country.

Akintunde recently inked a deal with Life Radio Network, who added two nationally syndicated radio shows starring the comedian, The Akintunde Show and The Rebirth of Comedy Laugh of the Day, to its regular programing line-up. The Akintunde Show first originated in Washington, DC in 2009 and alongside his writing for Mo'Nique and Chris Tucker, as well as his contributions to Showtime at the Apollo and The BET Awards, makes the Ak-man perfect for Life Radio.

After signing with Atlanta-based Arrow Records in January (becoming the first comedian on the influential new indie label), Akintunde performed his third straight year on the 2011 Change Convention Tour, wrapped a second season as writer/producer on BET's The Mo'Nique Show, hosted "The Search for The One" (a national comedy talent search), hosted The Gospel Choice Awards in September, and, importantly, continued rolling out new dates for his increasingly popular "Rebirth of Comedy" Tour.

Akintunde will also be a host on "Acquire the Fire 2012," one of the largest and most highly-anticipated events on the faith-based music and comedy scene.
