Just a quick update to folks interested in the filming of the 2011 batch of half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials, which happen from Oct. 14-17, 2010, in New York City.
First, the "bad" news. Kumail Nanjiani won't be taping a half-hour next weekend, but only because he's too busy being funny on the TV already, as production is well underway on his upcoming TNT series, Franklin and Bash. He's neither Franklin nor Bash, but he is very funny in the pilot episode. So Comedy Central moved Nate Bargatze's time from Sunday to Saturday.
And in Bargatze's original slot on Sunday, I'm happy to tell you that the very funny Jessi Klein will be recording a half-hour of her stand-up! For those of you who only know Klein as a writer for SNL or Michael and Michael Have Issues, or brief on-air appearances on other shows, then, well, you'll be pleased, too. Great news!
Tickets appear to be sold out for all of the tapings. Sorry about that if you missed it.
