TBS unveils lineups for new stand-up showcase, “The Very Funny Show”

Ready for another stand-up comedy showcase on TV? TBS taped several shows at Zanies in Chicago back in June during the TBS Just For Laughs Chicago festival, and they're ready to start rolling them out, two comics at a time, in half-hour episodes starting Nov. 19. The Very Funny Show, with host Tim Meadows, will air Thursdays following George Lopez's talk-show, Lopez Tonight. It's not to be confused with the similarly-named Very Funny Show videos curated by Matt Besser for the network two years ago.

Each episode of the stand-up showcase version of The Very Funny Show also will include brief interviews with the comedians about the inspirations for their material. Here is the lineup (subject to last-minute changes):

Thursday, Nov. 19, at 12 a.m. (ET/PT) Henry Cho and Nick Thune
