Funny man John Oliver has a new season of his show, John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, premiering soon. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
The new season, which is hosted by the brilliant Oliver, premieres on Thursday, March 24 at midnight, after The Colbert Report. John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show features new stand-up from more of Oliver’s favorite comedians. Oliver opens each of the six episodes with original material and introduces four comedians across the hour. Maria Bamford, Greg Behrendt, David Koechner, Kirk Fox, Al Madrigal, and Pete Holmes close each of their episodes with super-sized stand-up sets. The complete line-up boasts new stand-up from Anthony Jeselnik, Brendon Walsh, Deon Cole, Glenn Wool, Jen Kirkman, Kumail Nanjiani, Kyle Kinane, Marina Franklin, Mike Lawrence, Moshe Kasher, Rory Albanese, Rory Scovel, and Tommy Johnagin.
With his trademark British charm and New York edge, Oliver kicks off the season with a harrowing story of a flight diversion to Hanover, Germany and a thorough defense of the importance of swearing. Joining him on the premiere are Kyle Kinane, Glenn Wool, and Rory Scovel. Pete Holmes returns this season with a triumphant closing set. Leading up to the on-air premiere and throughout the new season, Jokes.com will feature preview clips and highlights from the series, as well as a special live version of the show staged at SXSW.
