Here are your comedians recording half-hour specials for Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents… in 2017

Remember when seemingly every comedian who ever called him or herself a comedian taped half-hour submissions earlier over the winter? They started finding out from Comedy Central last week, and here’s the full list of stand-ups recording what’s now being called Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents…

These first 14 half-hours also will return to the scene of last year’s fifth season of The Half Hour, The Civic Theatre in New Orleans. Tapings scheduled nightly at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. from April 19-22. Go here for free tickets!

Congrats to all!

Several of this year’s crop have only very recently made their network late-night TV debuts, or appeared last summer as a New Face in Montreal.

 

Previously known as The Half Hour, Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents… harkens back to the network’s previous title for half-hour stand-up specials, Comedy Central Presents (which ran from 1998-2011).

Look for episodes to begin airing Fall 2017 on Comedy Central.
