"Drunk History" - Series Premiere
Tuesday, July 9 from 10:00 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.
"Drunk History" presents historical reenactments from A-list talent as told by inebriated storytellers. Based on the award-winning and wildly popular web series, "Drunk History" follows the drunken and often incoherent narration of historical moments. Host Derek Waters, along with an ever-changing cast of great actors, will lead viewers from town to town across the country, including stops in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and the Wild West.
"The Jeselnik Offensive" - Season Two Premiere
Tuesday, July 9 from 10:30 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.
"The Jeselnik Offensive" unleashes Anthony Jeselnik's wicked take on must-see news ripped from the headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we all troll for the darker, more shocking and lurid stories. Recurring segments include "Sacred Cow," during which Jeselnik takes on topics too sensitive to make a joke about, and then makes a bunch of jokes about, such as "cancer," "missing children" and "bullying," as well as audience-participation games including "Search and Destroy," "Black Name Spelling Bee" and "Which Kind of Asian is This?" Each episode also features two guest panelists to further bash pop culture and gleefully rip the veil of sanctity from off-limit topics in segments like "Best Worst Thing" and "Latino Voices," as well as making Twitter a better place with "Defending Your Tweet." Panelists from the first season have included Aziz Ansari, Billy Eichner, Abby Elliott, Pete Holmes, Nick Kroll, Jason Matzoukas, T.J. Miller, John Mulaney, Kristen Schaal and Amy Schumer.
"John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show" - Season Four Premiere
Friday, July 26 from 11:00 p.m. - 11:30 p.m.
COMEDY CENTRAL gives viewers a front row seat as "The Daily Show's" John Oliver invites his favorite comedian friends to his adopted hometown for season four of "John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show." This weekly, half-hour series, hosted by the brilliant Oliver, features new stand-up from more of Oliver's favorite comedians. With his trademark British charm and New York edge, Oliver opens each of the eight episodes with original material and introduces comedians across the half-hour. New episodes air Fridays from 11:00 p.m. - 11:30 p.m. with limited commercial interruption.
