Comedy Central Presents

Although Comedy Central, which launched in 1991, really cemented its reputation with shows like the animated hit South Park, and fake news programs The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report, the network's roots are really in stand-up comedy. Comedy Central has always aired various specials showcasing stand-up comedians, but since 1998 they have been steadily producing the New York-based series Comedy Central Presents, a half-hour showcase of the best up-and-coming comedians doing a 30-minute set of their funniest material.

Comedy Central Presents Comedians:

Stand-up comedians who were featured on Comedy Central Presents back before they became "overnight" comic sensations include the likes of Dane Cook, Zack Galifanakis, Jim Gaffigan, Daniel Tosh, Lewis Black, Carlos Mencia, and Patton Oswalt. If you want to be able to tell your friends that you were a fan of such-and-such big-shot comedian back when they were just starting out, then this is the show to watch, so get your free Comedy Central tickets to see it in person now.

Comedy Central Presents generally showcases two dozen comedians per season, with each getting their own half-hour special.

Dane Cook on Comedy Central PresentsStudio Audience Profile:
Because it tapes at New York City's John Jay College, Comedy Central Presents attracts a lot of college students who love comedy and are eager to catch up-and-coming comedians performing their sets (and of course cash-strapped students are always happy to get free Comedy Central tickets). Naturally this TV show's audience also includes people of all ages who just enjoy having a good laugh. However, because modern comics are not known to shy away from filthy language and crude subject matter, Comedy Central Presents is probably not the ideal show to bring Grandma to.
