Set List live improvised stand-up shows come to Nerdist, with a special LIVE show for YouTube Comedy Week

Set List is an American creation that first scored a TV deal across the pond, but is finally finding its way back home with a webseries version that you can enjoy wherever you have Internet access.

Episode highlights of the live shows began appearing earlier this week on the Nerdist YouTube channel. Tonight, Set List puts on a live streaming showcase for YouTube’s inaugural Comedy Week.

The show starts at 6 p.m. Pacific, 9 p.m. Eastern, whatever time that translates to in your time zone today/tonight, at this YouTube LIVE Set List link. Paul Provenza and Reggie Watts are lined up as hosts for the YouTube LIVE festivities tonight, with “never-before-seen set lists from Jon DoreMoshe Kasher, Matt Kirshen, Kira Soltanovich, and Dan Van Kirk (as Mark Wahlberg)!”

As for the new and upcoming “Set List” videos for Nerdist, Provenza told The Comic’s Comic that they differ from the TV series airing on Sky Atlantic in that “these will be short form, exclusively from LIVE shows. Same format, a bit more raw on a more intimate scale & w more emerging talents.”

The first wave of videos feature T.J. Miller, Bob Odenkirk, Glenn Wool, Dan Van Kirk (as Mark Wahlberg) and Rory Scovel.

Roll the playlist, starting with T.J.!
