Trevor Moore and Comedy Central believe Facebook isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Moore will host a live 24-hour talk show onComedy Central Stand-Up’s Facebook on April 19 to promote his newest one-hour comedy special for Comedy Central, Trevor Moore: The Story of Our Times, which will debut at midnight April 20.
“Comedy Central is literally letting us take over their facilities for 24 hours so we’re going to use that time to crowd source a solution to every single problem the world has. We’ll take phone calls, host debates, interview people off the street and at the end of the day, hopefully we’ll have fixed racism, figured out a compromise on gun control, eliminated the wage gap and found Kony,” Moore said.
It ties into the theme of his new comedy special, which finds Moore suffering through brunch with his girlfriend (Esther Povitsky) and her friends (Alana Johnston, Amanda Seales, and Theo Von) as they discuss all the relevant issues of the day. His only escape: Delivering his viewpoints via songs and music videos.
The full unedited special will become available April 21 on the CC app and CC.com, and for digital download on April 24. The album, released by Comedy Central Records, will feature three new songs not in the special and will be available for digital download on Friday, April 20.
