Coach Von’s Corner
Popular, sports-centric stand-up comedian, Von Decarlo, joined the ranks of exciting, original programming on SiriusXM when she premiered her brand-new weekly show, Coach Von’s Corner, on the NBA Radio channel Sirius 207 XM 86 on October 17, 2018 at 6pm EST/PST.
Coach Von’s Corner is a weekly show where comedy meets sports, covering everything on and off the court in the NBA.
“It is amazing to me that in 2018 you can still find many people saying women aren’t funny, and women can’t talk sports. Being that I am a black woman and stand-up comedian, I feel very proud that the forward-thinking NBA and Sirius XM executives are putting their trust in me to prove both of these things to be wrong. I am the first female to host her own show on the NBA Radio channel, and I am very humbled by this historical, game-changing moment,” says Von Decarlo, “I want people to know that I am not a sports journalist, or a real coach. I am a comedian and a well-informed basketball super-fan, who has built her social media following and fan base trash talking in sports, pop culture, and in relationship commentary.”
The charming yet irreverent New Yorker is very excited to combine her love of the game with her gift of comedic gab and no-holds-barred, real talk welcoming the best and the brightest comedians pulled from Von’s personal, celebrity rolodex.
“Coach Von’s Corner will be an enjoyable, well-rounded show from a fan’s perspective where you get barbershop type talk from myself and my comedian guests,” says Von Decarlo. “It is also very important to me to create a show that is a fun, safe environment for NBA players to come in and talk about all of their off the court endeavors, because as so many have proved, they are much more than “shut up and dribble”. Donnell Rawlings (Chappelle’s Show) will be my first guest and I am excited to set it off on October 17.”
