Comedian Sultan A. Saladuddin II, a South Side native, co-creator, producer, writer and star of the HBO Max Comedy, South Side, will be hosting.
South Side follows two friends who just graduated from community college and are ready to take over the world, but until they do, they’re stuck working at Rent-T-Own. Shot on location in Chicago’s Englewood and various other south side neighborhoods, the show offers an authentic look into what life on the South Side is all about. The show’s third season will air on HBO Max this December 2022.
Richard Roeper of the Sun-Times wrote of the series, “South Side is sharply observed, slyly satirical, uproariously funny — and instantly addictive. It is edgy and bold, outrageous and provocative…” Roeper continues, “the show (sic) is a fearless, unapologetic, equal opportunity offender — sometimes going to near absurdist lengths in shining a spotlight on racial and cultural and societal issues, but never in mean-spirited fashion, and always in the interest of keeping us laughing. And thinking.”
Sultan is passionate about exposing the beauty of Chicago. He is a member of the Los Angeles Writers Guild Association and Screen Actors Guild. He has performed as a stand up comedian throughout the midwest and a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade located in Los Angeles, CA.
With Debbie Holstein, Sultan also founded the nonprofit organization, Lane 44, that provides exposure and opportunities for the Youth of Chicago’s South Side (YCSS). Lane 44 specializes in the production of Chicago-based, major motion pictures. The YCSS will be afforded the opportunity to gain enriching life-experiences while assisting in the overall production of Lane 44 films.
He can be found on Instagram @SimonJSouthSide where he has created a photo journal of season one for family, friends, and fans.
