Comedy Central is premiering its standup special series The Half Hour on Friday with sets from Chris Distefano and Michael Che. Other significant comedy stuff this week includes the season finale of Jim Rash's panel show The Writers' Room, the start of Jimmy Kimmel's post-NBA finals series of primetime specials, and the final episode of Louie's six-part "Elevator" story.
