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.

The site features commentary, reviews, polls and quizzes, exclusive video content and footage from the sets of today's hottest movies and much, much more. In addition, "Movies On comedycentral.com" will connect the current comedy scene to the classics of yesterday and engage users by examining recurring themes and bios and highlighting the historical connections between the new and the old. This encourages users to dig deeper into the site and discover comic facts and parallels that they never knew existed. This will be a fun, snarky romp through the deeper database of comedy movies past.

Not just a clearinghouse for information on celluloid comedy, the site will be updated daily with inimitable COMEDY CENTRAL commentary including the latest news from the entertainment world and current COMEDY CENTRAL content such as celebrity interviews from "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" or David Spade's ("The Showbiz Show") take on the week�s entertainment gossip.
