Inception releases second title from LEG

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Inception Media Group, LLC, a diversified media company specializing in the production, acquisition and distribution of entertainment content, announced it has acquired North American rights from Levity Entertainment Group (LEG) to distribute "Homecoming Show," a live stand-up performance from Anjelah Johnson, one of the hottest new comedic talents currently touring the country.

Former Raiders cheerleader turned stand-up comedienne Anjelah Johnson has been dazzling audiences in movies, television and during her live performances across America with her hysterical characters and ironic humor. With a huge female following and the ability to cross over to both Mid-western mainstream and Hispanic fan-bases, Johnson's new show leaves audiences smiling after an evening full of belly-laughs.

"Homecoming Show" will be released on DVD Sept. 17. The performance will also air as a comedy special on NuvoTV July 20. This is the second title Inception Media Group will release from LEG; the first was from popular South African comedian Trevor Noah.

"Anjelah is by far one of the most talented comedians on the stand-up circuit," said Garrett M. Lee, executive vice president of Inception Media Group, LLC. "Her comedy plays well with audiences across many demographics and geographies, and we are eager to bring her show to consumers across the country."

Johnson was a regular on the popular comedy variety series "MadTV," and has also appeared in "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" and "Our Family Wedding." Her Comedy Central Special, "That's How We Do It" was widely viewed and brought her unique brand of comedy to audiences across the country.
