Seeso, NBC Universal’s paid streaming platform, has picked up a stand-up series previously on The Movie Network, Funny as Hell.
Going into its sixth season, the filming of Funny as Hell will begin at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal on July 26-27. The show, which features stand-up from three comedians in each episode, will keep Jon Dore on as host. This season’s lineup of guests includes: Cameron Esposito, Eugene Mirman, Janeane Garofalo, Beth Stelling, Aparna Nancherla, Kurt Metzger, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Liza Treyger, The Lucas Brothers, Byron Bowers, Sean Patton, Sam Morril, James Davis, Ian Abramson, Sean Donnelly, Thomas Dale, Ahmed Bharoocha and Emo Philips. Others will be announced closer to the Just For Laughs festival.
A press release from Seeso states that “like the original version, this brand new season of Funny as Hell will encourage the best stand-up comedians in the industry to push the boundaries and have fun in a relaxed, uncensored setting.” Seeso has all previous five seasons of Funny As Hell available for streaming now (which you can find here), along with a host of other original content and NBC TV shows.
