CNN Greenlights “The History of Comedy” Series for 2017

Unlike many comedy retrospectives these days, they’re going to go all the way back to the Ancient Greeks.

CNN is adding to their comedy offerings from United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell by making a brand new historical comedy series, The History of Comedy, that will trace the evolution of comedy as an art form over time and in branching out of genres within it. 

Look for the series to debut sometime next year.

No word on who will host it or some of the guests that will be interviewed, but we’d be really surprised if Kliph Nesteroff didn’t fit somewhere int his.
