New Crop of Comedy Central Half-Hours Premiering this Friday

Goodbye Comedy Central Presents – hello The Half Hour. Ostensibly, they're the same thing but The Half Hour sounds cooler. The list of specials includes a diverse assortment of dudes and Garfunkel & Oates. Besides G&O, there is: Joe Mande, Neal Brennan (famous for co-creating The Chappelle Show), Na'im Lynn, David O'Doherty, Michael Palascak, Jesse Popp, Theo Von ("famous" for being on Road Rules), Rory Scovel, Maronzio Vance, Nick Vatterott, and Brendon Walsh. The series premieres this Friday, May 11th, at 11:00pm with Rory Scovel, followed by Michael Palascak at 11:30. If you are unfamiliar with some of that list, Comedy Central shot a very brief interview with each, which you can find after the jump.

    I am so excited for so many of these…Joe Mande, Brendon Walsh, Michael Palascak, Rory Scovel, Garfunkle & Oates…so many good acts that deserve more attention. And hopefully the rebranding of Comedy Central's stand up specials gives it a little boost in viewership so they're encouraged to keep giving great, lesser known comedians big opportunities like this.
