NEW YORK, June 8, 2016 - Summer's here and it's time for some mind-bending animation to kick it off as Comedy Central's psychedelic animated series "TripTank" returns with ten all-new episodes beginning Monday, June 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Fans can catch up on the first half of season two via the Comedy Central App and at cc.com/triptank (no authentication required).
Executive produced by ShadowMachine's Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, "TripTank" takes things just a little bit further through a variety of animation styles, featuring a broad range of formats including 2D, stop-motion and CGI. The weekly, half-hour series showcases a wide range of fast-paced, hard-hitting animated comedy shorts, weaving together stand-alone and recurring narrative pieces.
In the premiere episode, "Bethiffer" tracks down terrorists at the mall, the aliens use a "sound machine" with unintended consequences on "Jeff & Some Aliens," and the "Suck it Gary" guys try to prank Gary at a water park.
Voice talent this run includes Margaret Cho, Andrew Dice Clay, Jemaine Clement, Kevin Dillon, Jon Hamm, David Hasselhoff, Cheryl Hines, Kristen Johnston, Tom Kenny, Tom Lennon, Niecy Nash, Ne-Yo, Paul Reiser, Nick Swardson and Wendie Malick.
