This Week At The Comedy Cellar welcomes Judy Gold as a regular to its weekly series.
In a world where comedy is more necessary, more urgent than ever before, Comedy Central provides audiences with a groundbreaking new series during which comedians sort through the noise to deliver the freshest jokes through a topical filter. This Week at the Comedy Cellar, a new, weekly, half-hour stand-up series filmed at the legendary New York City comedy club, premieres Friday, October 26 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT and delivers stand-up comedy as has never been seen before.
Recorded over the course of the same week they premiere, each episode of This Week at the Comedy Cellar provides a front row seat to fans of topical comedy as comedians react to recent headlines, weaving sharp takes on current events into a tight and topical 30-minute weekly show. Interspersed among the stand-up sets is a one-of-a-kind look at the famed Comedy Cellar “comics’ table,” where featured comedians will debate the week’s topics and discuss their process of taking what everyone’s been talking about and spinning it into comedy. Each episode will also feature a biographical spotlight on one of that week’s featured stand-ups.
Comedy Central will post the extended comedian roundtable discussions and various stand-up highlights weekly on cc.com/StandUp and on YouTube. The CC App, cc.com/StandUp and YouTube will feature clips from each episode. In addition, full episodes of This Week at the Comedy Cellar will be available the day after premiere on the Comedy Central App and cc.com. Fans can follow the social conversation about the series on Twitter @StandUp (71.5k) and Instagram @ccstandup (71.8k) using the hashtag #ComedyCellar.
