See, pitching in on those awkward Comedy Central celebrity roasts does help your career. Comedians Amy Schumer, Anthony Jeselnik and Ben Hoffman have all landed series on the cable network that will debut next year.
Details about the shows are pretty scarce. Jeselnik will star in an untitled weekly topical series. Schumer will star in an untitled sketch series that will feature “single-camera vignettes centered around a theme with Schumer playing heightened versions of herself.” Hoffman’s project has the most detail. His The Ben Show is a sketch/man-on-the-street hybrid where each week he’ll take “the viewers on a different life journey, which could include him forming a band, finding religion, auditioning for a reality show or trying out volunteer work.”
What do you think? Winners? Or more fodder for Daniel Tosh’s ongoing list of cancelled Comedy Central shows?
