It's a rare chance to get your comedy-biz Qs A'd. And now, a word from our lawyers: Kent won't be able to read your pitches or ideas, so please don't send them to him. As you might imagine, lots of people have the same ideas for TV shows, and something you think of might be similar or identical to something that COMEDY CENTRAL has received from someone else or has developed itself, or that it may receive or develop in the future. By sending Kent a question, you agree that what you're sending him isn't a pitch, and that you expect no compensation, at any time and under any circumstances, from COMEDY CENTRAL. We can't stop you from blurting things out on Twitter, but if you think your idea is great and you want to make money off it, keep it to yourself. Talent: Kent Alterman, tweeting from @ComedyCentral
