In the tradition of such groundbreaking comedy club shows as Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam, HBO presents the most outrageous stand-up comedy form Snapping. Snapping is a game of African-American comedic insults, also known as rap comedy or yo mama jokes. Snapping has been around for hundreds of years, dating back to times of slavery in the U.S. It's a game that promotes fighting with your wits, not your fists. Hosted by Monteria Ivey, each half-hour episode features some of the toughest, funniest snappers in America. In a tag team format, they battle for comic insult supremacy in front of a wildly enthusiastic audience at La Mama Experimental Theatre Club in New York City.
