Comedy Central Announces Next Round of Half Hour Stand-Up Specials

We now know the comedians who’ll be getting half hour stand-up specials on Comedy Central this year, and it’s a great line-up. The 14 comedians who’ll be featured in the newly renamed series Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents… includes one of the stars of TruTV’s Those Who Can’t, the ubiquitous (and always welcome) Jo Firestone, onetime Paste writer Shane Torres, stand-up ace / SNL writer Julio Torres, and many more. The entire season will be filming in New Orleans in April, with free tickets, and airing on TV later in 2017.

Here’s that full roster:

Adam Cayton-Holland
Anthony Devito
Jo Firestone
Solomon Georgio
Casey James Salengo
Sam Jay
Josh Johnson
Joel Kim Booster
Lashonda Lester
Chris Redd
Yamaneika Saunders
Julio Torres
Shane Torres
Jenny Zigrino

This is a really strong and diverse line-up of some of the best young comedians running, including more than a few of our current favorites here at Paste. In fact a couple of them have performed at our studio in New York, which you can see embedded below.

Comedy Central will be shooting these specials in New Orleans from Wednesday, April 19 through Saturday, April 22, and the tickets are free. To score those, visit this website right here.
