Comedy Central has revealed its list of upcoming works and pilots under the modest heading: "The Future of Comedy."
Next year, prepare for a fantasy-comedy set in medieval times, "Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire," written by Peter Knight.
The pilots include projects by or featuring Snoop Dogg, Andy Richter, Daniel Tosh, David Alan Grier, Nick Swardson, Paul F. Tompkins, Opie & Anthony, Zach Galifianakis and A.D. Miles. Scripted development deals go out to Bobby Lee, Jordan Rubin, Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter.
And there will be specials. John Oliver’s "Terrifying Times" debuts April 20. Carlos Mencia’s hourlong "Performance Enhanced" debuts May 18. Brian Regan’s yet-untitled special will air in the third quarter of 2008.
