Ben Stiller, Lewis Black Among Big Names in EPIX Comedy Programs

Today, the EPIX network announced its new slate of comedy offerings. The multi-platform network will air a mix of stand-up and more roundtable discussion-based shows, starting June 30 with Jim Norton: Please Be Offended. Comedian and author Jim Norton (pictured here) will be the first comic in the EPIX Comedy Unbound series of specials, which will air the last weekend of every month. Kevin Smith, Lewis Black, Jim Jefferies, Sherri Shepherd, and Eddie Griffin round out the rest of the Comedy Unbound specials.

The network will also air the 4th annual All-Star Comedy Roundtable, filmed recently at the Nantucket Film Festival. The show, presented by Ben Stiller, brings together Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, and host Bill Hader for a friendly chat about all things comedy. Other programs include comedy highlights from the annual Amnesty International’s Secret Policeman’s Ball as well as Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes’ (aka Jay) recent trip to Australia. Sounds great to us.
