ORIGINAL SERIES

"The Burn with Jeff Ross" - Season Two Premiere

Tuesday, January 8 at 10:30 p.m.

The infamous "Roastmaster General," Jeff Ross, is back to take aim at the week's hottest topics in season two of "The Burn with Jeff Ross." Ross and his panel of fellow comedians return to take on the week's topics, Roast style - taking aim at public figures and current events. Popular segments include "Friendly Fire," in which Ross visits his friends for some friendly put-downs; last season's targets included John Stamos, Jimmy Kimmel, and Sarah Silverman. In "Public Enemies," Jeff heads out on the tricked out Segway, dubbed the "Roaster Coaster," to roast public menaces; and in the cringe-inducing "Too Soon," he pays tribute to an extremely recently departed celebrity, the only way he knows how - by roasting them.

"Workaholics" - New Episodes Begin

Wednesday, January 16, at 10:00 p.m.

From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics" returns with all-new episodes. The single-camera comedy features three friends who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day... even if they don't know what day it is. Whether it's Blake (Blake Anderson) dressed in a bear coat, Adam (Adam Devine) singing about Catherine Zeta Jones while high on mushrooms or The Ders (Anders Holm) celebrating his birthday with a drinking triathlon, the boys always seem to run into trouble wherever they go. This past season, they spent their days dropping acid on a business trip, helping out and harassing their coworkers, trying to prove their worth to the boss, Alice, and still managed to get the job done.

"Kroll Show" - Series Premiere

Wednesday, January 16, at 10:30 p.m.

Known for his role as "Ruxin" in the FX comedy "The League," along with his stand-up specials and roles on "Community," "Childrens Hospital," "Parks and Recreation" and "Portlandia," Nick Kroll comes to COMEDY CENTRAL as the creator/writer/star of "Kroll Show," a fresh take on sketch comedy, showcasing Kroll's incredible ability to create memorable and hilarious characters who pop off the screen. While "Kroll Show" is made up of sketches, it's not just a sketch show. It's ultimately Kroll's smart and absurd take on of-the-moment pop culture topics like internet life, professional sports, nightclub culture and the television landscape. Kroll (@nickkroll) fans will recognize many of their favorite characters including "The Ed Hardy Boyz," Bobby Bottleservice, the incomparable Fabrice Fabrice, and the "Rich Dicks." They'll also be introduced to an entirely new part of the Kroll Universe as Kroll transforms himself into an eccentric cast of characters throughout the season including "Liz," a young, female publicist in LA; "Legs" the new kid at a school for handicapped kids; "Dr. Armand," the premier canine plastic surgeon; and "Ref Jeff," a big-butted basketball ref trying to "lock down" plans with players during the game. Joining Nick for the first season of "Kroll Show" are a roster of well-known actors and comedians such as Fred Armisen, Tess Broussard, Andy Daly, Kathryn Hahn, Ed Helms, Rob Huebel, Andy Milonakis, Chelsea Peretti and Adam Pally, who showcase their comedic abilities when they make guest appearances and add an element of surprise to the show, with fans never knowing who will pop up next.
