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.
