    David O’Doherty and Jesse Popp bring Comedy Central’s ‘Half Hour’ to a close (Preview videos)

    I first saw Irish comic David O’Doherty years ago in Montreal, when he performed on Andy Kindler’s popular Alternative Show and have been keeping an interested eye on him ever since. So, naturally I’m super excited to see him score his own half-hour special for Comedy Central. Known for using his tiny electric keyboard to drive some of his jokes, he’s the type of comic who earns an equal amount

    Comedy Central’s The Half Hour: Joe Mande and Garfunkel and Oates (Preview videos)

    Week five of Comedy Central’s new stand-up comedy series The Half Hour brings two stellar acts to the stage: Joe Mande and Garfunkel and Oates. Mande, you no doubt know from Twitter, as he’s easily one of the funniest cats on there.

    ‘The Half-Hour’ premieres Friday on Comedy Central with Rory Scovel, Michael Palascak (Videos)

    One of the reasons I became obsessed with stand-up comedy was Comedy Central Presents, Comedy Central’s long-running series of 30-minute stand-up specials, which shined a light on great up and coming comedians. I even made my own “mixtape” of sorts, where one VHS tape housed CCPs from Greg Giraldo, Nick Swardson, Mitch Hedberg, Zach Galifianakis and more. Don’t make fun. This was long before these things were available on iTunes.
