THEY’RE NO HEROES, BUT THEY’RE BETTER THAN NOBODY “REEL COMEDY: THE OTHER GUYS” PREMIERES MONDAY, JULY 26 AT MIDNIGHT ON COMEDY CENTRAL®
Will Ferrell And Mark Wahlberg Star In “The Other Guys” Which Opens In Theaters Nationwide August 6
NEW YORK, July 6, 2010 — COMEDY CENTRAL is searching for a hero (but willing to settle) in “Reel Comedy: The Other Guys.” This half-hour special premieres on Monday, July 26 at midnight.
COMEDY CENTRAL’s “Reel Comedy: The Other Guys” is hosted by comedian Paul F. Tompkins, who visits the set of the film to get the lowdown on the “other,” funnier side of the New York City Police Department. Tompkins hangs out with the film’s stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, who talk about their characters, the movie’s stunts and what it takes to be a cop in the NYPD. Tompkins also gets a first-hand lesson from the film’s co-stars Rob Riggle, Damon Wayans Jr. and Bobby Cannavale, who teach him the art of keeping a straight face while shooting a comedy – especially one directed by Adam McKay. Sony’s “The Other Guys” opens in theaters on August 6.
Encore presentations air Tuesday, July 27 at 5:00 p.m., Thursday, July 29 at 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 a.m. and Tuesday, August 3 at 5:00 p.m.
