A Comedian’s No Laughing Matter?
HSK Exclusive – If Bill Bellamy had his way, he’d have no part in Mr. Box Office — a show he says can’t hold a torch to competing network programs. That’s because while creator Byron Allen continues to cash in, Bellamy says his choice to sign on with Allen has led to the demise of his career in comedy.
Mr. Box Office – starring Bill Bellamy, Jon Lovitz, Vivica Fox, Gary Busey and Rick Fox – debuted back in September 2012. That’s after Bellamy says no rehearsals and only filming took place three times a week. That’s a sharp comparison to other shows which rehearse daily and film once.
We’re told it’s all a part of Byron Allen’s plan to follow in Tyler Perry’s footsteps – by filming as many shows as possible at a cheap price, in order to continue syndicating product to other networks.
Here’s the drop:
“Byron Allen’s ‘Mr Box Office’ is a buss. Bill Bellamy is pissed cause he allowed himself to be talked into a bullshit show, wasting his talent away.
Byron Allen is one of them black dudes who thinks he’s all the way white. Actors are ruining their careers by accepting Byron’s paycheck. He doesn’t care about the art of making a decent sitcom. Byron only cares about the money, he’s like Tyler Perry.”
