SERIES

 

Tosh.0“ (Season Five Premiere)

Tuesday, February 5 at 10:00 p.m.

Look out, internet – Daniel Tosh premieres the fifth season of “Tosh.0” this February on COMEDY CENTRAL. Tosh is back to break down that vast field of twarties, vlogs, hashtags and deluded YouTube sensations for your viewing pleasure. Tune in for a brand new season of Tosh's take on the online Universe.

“The Jeselnik Offensive” (Series Premiere)

Tuesday, February 19 at 10:30 p.m.

Anthony Jeselnik will bring his signature dark and twisted point-of-view to the network in his new weekly topical series, “The Jeselnik Offensive.” Jeselnik is known to COMEDY CENTRAL viewers from his blistering appearances on recent Roasts of Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump. Jeselnik will unleash his razor-sharp take on each week's must-see “train wreck” news ripped from the headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we all troll for the darker, more shocking and lurid stories. Panelists will join Jeselnik to further bash pop culture and gleefully rip the veil of sanctity from off-limit topics.

“The Ben Show” (Series Premiere)

Thursday, February 28 at 10:00 p.m.

“The Ben Show” is a sketch show/man-on-the-street hybrid starring comedian Ben Hoffman. Between sketches, Hoffman works towards a personal goal, like forming a band, going on a blind date, buying a gun or returning to his home town in Kentucky. Hoffman seeks advice and guidance from strangers to people he knows including his dad, ex-girlfriends and therapist, who also help him introduce the sketches. Hoffman was a writer/correspondent for COMEDY CENTRAL’s “Sports Show with Norm Macdonald” and wrote for the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Roseanne.” In addition, he has appeared on “Arrested Development,” “The New Girl” and “Drunk History.” Hoffman also memorably pranked the Twittersphere during President Obama’s Hollywood fund-raising event with George Clooney, tweeting as if he was present at the event.

“Nathan For You” (Series Premiere)

Thursday, February 28 at 10:30 p.m.

In this docu-reality comedy, Nathan Fielder (“Jon Benjamin Has A Van”) uses his business degree and life experiences to help actual small businesses turn a profit. From getting buzz for a yogurt shop by introducing a controversial flavor, helping a taxi company reinvent the cab ride, and finding a legal way for a gas station to charge $1.75 per gallon and still make money, Nathan goes as far as it takes to make his ideas come to life. But because of his unorthodox approach, Nathan’s sincere efforts to do good often draw real people into an experience far beyond what they signed up for.
