NEW YORK, August 17, 2015 - The fourth season of Comedy Central's stand-up series "The Half Hour" premieres on Saturday, August 22 at Midnight ET/PT and 12:30 a.m. ET/PT, featuring Liza Treyger and Hampton Yount. Highlight preview episode "Must CC: The Half Hour" is now available on the Comedy Central App and cc.com/thehalfhour, and on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video, Apple Music, Vudu and Google Play.

Treyger's 'The Half Hour' takes us on a sassy, raunchy ride with this self-proclaimed party gal as she explores casual feminism, intoxicated mistakes and her recommended Sex Ed syllabus. Yount shares his high-energy yet pot induced musings on infomercials, human sacrifice and the Olympics, and presents new takes on therapy, conspiracy theorists and the gender politics of diarrhea. Both Treyger and Yount are former Comedy Central 'Comics to Watch.'

Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up and cc.com/thehalfhour will feature preview clips from the series. Fans can follow Treyger and Yount on Twitter at @GlitterCheese and @Hamptonyount, and tweet using the hashtag #TheHalfHour to join the social chatter around the series.

The episodes will also be available for download the day after air on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video, Apple Music, Vudu and Google Play.

Treyger's digital album "Liza Treyger: Glittercheese," will be available on August 21 on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Spotify, Apple Music and all streaming services. The album is available for pre-order on August 14 on iTunes.

Treyger was born in the former Soviet Union, raised in Skokie, Il, and spent close to six years doing stand-up in Chicago before moving to New York City in 2014. She was a standout performer at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal last summer and has appeared on "Adam Devine's House Party" on Comedy Central and "Chelsea Lately." Treyger can currently be seen on MTV 2's "Joking Off" and her web series "How Many Questions."

Yount has been a recurring presence at festivals such as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SXSW and the DC Comedy Festival, and was named one of Esquire's best new stand-up comedians of 2012. He's written for "Upload with Shaquille O'Neal" on TruTV, "Loiter Squad" on Adult Swim and "Ridiculousness" and "Fantasy Factory" on MTV. On the small screen, he has been featured on TBS's "Conan," NBC's "Last Comic Standing," Comedy Central's "The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail," "@midnight with Chris Hardwick" and "Adam Devine's House Party." Yount's new album "Bearable" is available from AST Records, and through all digital retailers and streaming services.
