Comedy Central Orders Talk Show Pilot “Gettin’ Some Strange with Kurt Braunohler”
Comedy Central makes another great move by ordering a talk show pilot from the amazing Kurt Braunohler. Braunohler’s Roustabout hasn’t even premiered yet and the network is already wanting more from Kurt, which should be a really good sign for what’s to come.
If you were at the last Riot LA Comedy Festival, you probably got to see the last incarnation of a Kurt Braunohler talk show, which featured interviewing guests with a lie detector test, several “mistimed” surprises, and a second line leading the whole audience through the streets of downtown LA to an after party.
Let’s hope that some semblance of that will make it to the Gettin’ Some Strange pilot.
Comedy Central Orders Weekly Variety Show Pilot Hosted by Justin Willman, Produced by Chris Hardwick
Comedy Central is going further into the Nerdist/Chris Hardwick business after the sucess of “@midnight” by ordering a pilot produced by Hardwick for a variety show intended to be weekly.
Justin Willman who you might know as a charming magician or the host of Cupcake Wars would be set to host what would be a mix of sketch, stand-up, “social experiments”, and more.
This might prove to be another nice way to expand Comedy Central’s branding as a variety show doesn’t currently exist on Comedy Central.
