Log-On To www.comedycentral.com/movies/ On Wednesday, May 3 And Surf The Definitive Comedy Movie Portal

NEW YORK, May 1, 2006 -- What year was "Caddyshack" released and did it win any awards? Who are the "Top 5 Dumb Blonde Actors" of all-time and do any of them have a movie coming out this summer? What's the connection between "Old School" and "Animal House?" Beginning Wednesday, May 3, these questions and more can now be answered by a click or two of the mouse thanks to "Movies On comedycentral.com" (www.comedycentral.com/movies/), the most comprehensive online database for comedy movies, it was announced today by Beth Lewand, vice president, digital media, COMEDY CENTRAL.

This will be a fun, snarky romp through the deeper database of comedy movies past.
