Comedy Central is continuing with its new series of half-hour stand-up comedy showcases, called The Half Hour (previously known as Comedy Central Presents). They’ll tape in Boston, as they did last year, at Royale, from Feb. 26 through March 1, 2013.

Air dates to be determined later in 2013. Stay tuned for details on obtaining tickets to the tapings (I’ll update this post accordingly).

* For those of you who insist upon crunching the diversity numbers, that’s 12 white guys out of the 17 comics picked for half-hours this year. Two ladies. Assorted other breakdowns, if you must know. Do with that demographic information what you will.
