We weren’t sure of its status but today we learned that Comedy Central has not only renewed its weekly topical stand-up comedy series, This Week at the Comedy Cellar for season two but we also learned that the new season will premiere Friday, July 19th at 11pm.
The show is unique and great because it’s taped and released during the same week as comedians that perform at the Cellar are tackling topics of the day in a funny, raw, and hilarious way. The other great feature TWATCC does is showcase some of the lesser-known but equally as funny comedians that work the room every night. Season 1 featured 85 comedians over the course of its 7 episodes.
“This Week at the Comedy Cellar captures the essence of what it’s really like in this iconic comedy club on a night-to-night basis, giving fans of stand-up across the country a window into that experience,” said Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Executive Vice Presidents and Co-Heads of Talent and Development for Comedy Central. “We were thrilled the response we received from stand-up fans and comics alike was so overwhelmingly positive — there truly is nothing like this series being produced right now — and knew we had to bring it back for more.”
