Comedy Central is going to Meltdown Comics for the best in stand-up comedy.
The cable network has handed out a series order toThe Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail from executive producer Ben Stiller, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The series will be hosted by comedians Jonah Ray (The Soup, The Nerdist) and Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash, Portlandia, Michael & Michael Have Issues) and feature the hottest stand-up comedians performing at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles and based on the weekly event the duo hosts at the popular venue.
Meltdown, coined the epicenter of L.A.’s alt-comedy scene in THR’s inaugural Comedy Issue this year, hosts the weekly session with Ray and Nanjiani. The event has featured some of the hottest names in comedy including Louis C.K., Robin Williams, Aziz Ansari, Donald Glover, Mark Maron and more.
Comedy Central’s adaptation will see the duo host comedians on-stage and go behind the scenes with the comics and other guest stars in the greenroom.
Ray, Nanjiani, Emily Gordon as well as Red Hour’s Stiller, Stuart Cornfeld, Debbie Liebling and Mike Rosenstein. Jonas Larsen and Toni Magon will oversee for Comedy Central.
“Of all the comedy shows on Comedy Central that are taped in the back of a comic book store, this will be the best one,” Ray, Nanjiani and Gordon said in a statement.
Added Comedy Central original programming president Kent Alterman: “I’m shocked to learn this show will be taped in the back of a comic book store, rather than a comedy store, but we’ll do it anyway.”
