Comedy Central is premiering its newest standup series, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, on July 23rd at 12:30am, Splitsider has learned, and the show has one hell of an impressive lineup, including performances from Adam Scott, Nick Offerman, TJ Miller, Reggie Watts, Maria Bamford, and tons more.
Hosted by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, The Meltdown is a half-hour eight-episode standup showcase based on the duo’s Los Angeles live show of the same name, one of the most popular standup shows in town. Ray and Nanjiani have been hosting the live show from the NerdMelt Theater since 2011. The Comedy Central version will feature about four comedians per episode and will be a mix of standup and backstage footage. The Meltdown was directed by Lance Bangs, and the series is being produced by Ben Stiller via his company Red Hour and Emily Gordon, who produces and books the live show. The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail will air Wednesdays nights at 12:30am (or “Thursday mornings” for you nerds out there), starting July 23rd.
