COMEDY CENTRAL(R) Launches 'Portable Lounge' Roaming Online Talk Show Featuring Rotating Cast of Comedic Talent Riffing on Pop Culture and Technology

Premiere Episode Features COMEDY CENTRAL's "Big Lake" Star Chris Gethard Interviewing "SNL's" Bobby Moynihan At A Bowling Alley In The Bronx

To Watch "Portable Lounge" Go To comedycentral.com/lounge

NEW YORK, June 18 -- COMEDY CENTRAL is taking it to the streets, laundromats and locations near you with today's launch of "Portable Lounge," a new roaming online talk show featuring two rising, as well as established, comedians riffing on technology and pop culture. The premiere episode, which debuts on comedycentral.com (www.comedycentral.com/lounge) will feature Chris Gethard, the star of COMEDY CENTRAL's upcoming new series "Big Lake" interviewing "Saturday Night Live's" Bobby Moynihan at a bowling alley in the Bronx -- where the only things flying faster than the gutter balls are the "Star Wars" and Frank Sinatra references.

"Portable Lounge," which is sponsored by Sobe, features a rotating cast of comedic talent shot at unusual locations throughout the country � future shows to be taped in a butcher shop, a barber shop, a comic book store and a chocolate factory. Each episode will pair one host with a guest from the comedy world engaging in a variety of topics, with an emphasis on spontaneous, free-flowing conversation. Featured segments include; "Tweet Of The Moment," where some of the more unusual celebrity tweets of the week will be dissected, "Whodya Rather" a 90-second game show in which the host asks the guest to choose between two celebrities or public figures with whom they will perform a mystery task, "Delete a Friend," where the host will ask the comedic guest to randomly delete a Facebook friend and "Non-Sexual Fantasy." The portable nature of the show allows COMEDY CENTRAL to ship and shoot "Portable Lounge" anywhere at anytime.

COMEDY CENTRAL, the only all-comedy network, currently is seen in more than 98 million homes nationwide. COMEDY CENTRAL is owned by, and is a registered trademark of, Comedy Partners, a wholly-owned division of VIACOM Inc.'s (NYSE: VIA and VIA.B) MTV Networks.
