Watch several preview clips from The Comedy Awards 2012

The Comedy Awards 2012 — second annual edition of the revived ceremonies for the comedy industry to honor working comedians and comedic actors — returns to Comedy Central on Sunday, May 6. Since the awards ceremony was taped last weekend in New York City, we already know the winners for The Comedy Awards 2012, and can relive some of these moments online before you see them on TV.

But know that you still can vote in a few Viewers Choice categories today until Sunday’s broadcast, including Funniest Person on Twitter, Best Comedy Podcast, Best Comedy App, and Best Remix/Supercut/Mashup video.


Without further ado, let’s roll some teaser clips!
