NEW YORK (AP) — The Apollo Theater in Harlem will induct comics Richard Pryor, Moms Mabley and Redd Foxx into its walk of fame.

It says the legendary comedians will be inducted during a special ceremony on Oct. 1.

The theater says it’s the first time that it will be inducting non-musical artists into the Apollo Walk of Fame. All three had longstanding relationships with the Apollo.

The historic theater also is launching a new comedy series on the same night. The Apollo Comedy Club will feature emerging comics.

Its fall and winter season also includes the return of the international hip-hop dance festival Breakin’ Convention that will feature French dance duo Les Twins.

The Apollo is known for launching the careers of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sammy Davis Jr. and many others.
