It’s 2019 and Comedy Central is ringing in the new year guns a-blazing, to lighten up weeknights with unadulterated comedy gold from sketch to talkshow satires, right down to the funniest stand-up comedy this January. Your weeknights are about to get interesting, and we promise you there’s going to be #NOFILTER when these comedians take centrestage.
Give it up for the provocative and risqué duo – Amy Schumer and Jim Jefferies – heating up screens in Asia for the first time. Nothing is off limits for these two comedians as they take on sensitive topics like relationships and politics with their trademark provocative style!
Straight from Amy Schumer’s hilariously wicked mind, Inside Amy Schumer explores sensitive topics that others don’t dare to talk about like relationships and also life in general, through sketches, stand-up comedy and woman-on-the-street interviews. Get ready for Schumer’s trademark concoction of self-depreciating jabs and all-so-inappropriate insights that is sure to have you high from uncontrollable laughter!
The Jim Jefferies Show is here to shake up the humdrum formula of the political late-night show by bringing piercing insight and a uniquely Aussie viewpoint to the scene with a fresh no-bullshit candor. Jefferies tackles what’s happening culturally and politically around the world, through interviews, field pieces, and man-on-the-street investigations, all whilst blending in his distinctive brand of humor!
