Check out the full rundown below:
THE UCB SHOW Season Two (Premieres January 12)
“The UCB Show” is a weekly variety showcase for the best sketch, characters and stand-up homegrown at the UCB Theatres in LA and NYC, and is hosted by UCB co-founders Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh. The series is Executive Produced by Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, Bart Coleman, and Lou Wallach.
FANCY BOY (Premieres January 12)
A new six part sketch comedy show that swings between moody and manic. An itch that starts out small, but becomes a weeping sore.
WHAM BAM, THANK YOU MA’AM (Premieres January 12)
From Skit Box the all-female comedy group behind the viral sensation “Activewear,” comes “Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am” – a twisted sketch comedy from a uniquely female perspective. Join a world of yoga moms and superheroes, travel back to a 70’s swingers party and Ancient Rome, and meet our all-female police force and the world’s biggest pop band – The Sheetles. Written, directed, created by and starring Sarah Bishop, Greta Lee Jackson and Adele Vuko.
ADAM NEWMAN’S FUZZIES – ALL-NEW STAND-UP SPECIAL (Premiering January 26)
In his first one-hour special, Adam Newman delves into obscure B-horror movies, newly discovered Jetsons debauchery, and goes out on a well-deserved, world record setting mic drop.
THE CYANIDE & HAPPINESS SHOW Season Three (Premieres February 2)
From the upsettingly ingenious minds of Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker, and Dave McElfatrick comes the animated sketch series based on their wildly popular web-comic. Grab your brand new PainbotTM and step into a world where Ultrasoldier kicks some ultra-ass; a boy named Cory gets trapped inside a fantasy adventure with Lunk, goblins, and the fearsome Orca King; and the superhero team of These Guys make a triumphant return, battling evil once again. Now that’s what I call Season 3! Animation so outrageous it will inappropriately touch your funny bone. Created and Executive Produced by Rob DenBleyker, Kris Wilson and Dave McElfatrick of Explosm Entertainment, and Executive Produced by Studio71.
ALL NEW STAND-UP SPECIAL FROM NICK DIPAOLO (Premieres February 16)
MY BROTHER, MY BROTHER AND ME (Premieres February 23)
“My Brother, My Brother and Me” is a comedy advice show that barely offers any advice (and usually spirals out of control). In each episode, real-life brothers Justin, Travis, and Griffin McElroy pick a question from a viewer and spin it into a ridiculous adventure set in their hometown of Huntington, West Virginia. With cameras in tow, the brothers end up dragging their families, local luminaries, celebrity guests, and supernatural entities into their whirlpool of comedy chaos. The TV show is an adaptation of the McElroy’s popular podcast that has over 45 million downloads and an already expansive community of fans. Produced by Embassy Row with Michael Davies, J.D. Amato, Debbie DeMontreux and Stacey Altman serving as Executive Producers. Justin, Travis, and Griffin McElroy also serve as Executive Producers.
ALL NEW STAND-UP SPECIAL FROM FAHIM ANWAR (Premieres March 9)
SHRINK (Premieres March 16)
A recent medical school graduate (Tim Baltz) loses his residency and finds himself unemployed with a half million dollars of student loan debt. With his dream of becoming a “real doctor” dashed, he discovers a loophole to becoming a therapist by recording 1,920 supervised clinical hours, which he begins by soliciting patients from Craigslist and conducts the free sessions in his parent’s garage. Created and Executive Produced by Tim Baltz and Ted Tremper, Executive Produced by Chuck Martin, Jean Doumanian, Patrick Daly and Jonathan Stern.
ALL NEW STAND-UP SPECIAL FROM SASHEER ZAMATA (Premieres March 30)
In the meantime, Seeso will wrap up 2016 with two new specials: Alan Partridge’s Scissored Isle (November 17th) and Andy Richter’s Home for the Holidays (December 20th).
