Chris Gethard announced today that his self-titled TV show, which was recently made into a pilot for Comedy Central, will return to public access with regular weekly episodes on April 2nd.

Wednesday night, The Chris Gethard Show held its third annual "Sandwich Night" episode, a pre-Thanksgiving tradition in which the entire show is devoted to people bringing their own sandwiches to the studio and talking about them. The holiday grows bigger and bigger every year and will hopefully become a federal holiday by this time 2014.
Tonight, The Chris Gethard Show airs our 100th episode on public access television. Before that, I spent two years doing the show as a stage show at the UCB Theater. On the public access show alone, between the episodes, pre-taped specials, and our 12-hour long election coverage special, we’ve created almost 120 hours of free content.

Comedian Chris Gethard's public access show has a big-time movie star dropping by this week: Zach Galifianakis.

The show airs tomorrow at 11pm eastern online or on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. It's really impressive and a testament to the strength and inventiveness of The Chris Gethard Show that they were able to book one of the biggest movie [...]
Comedian Chris Gethard's nutty public access show will be broadcasting live election coverage all day, from noon to midnight EST, both streaming online (embedded here) and on the Manhattan TV station MNN4. Get ready for some seriously uninformed but fun political coverage, which should be a nice break from the mainstream media's the election reporting, which is not any fun outside of all the flashy graphics. The Chris Gethard Show's candidate Connor Ratliff will be in-house, and if the underdog pulls of an upset and beats favorites Obama and Romney, it'll make this episode of The Gethard Show pretty historic.
