SCHEDULE

Ron Funches: Giggle Fit premieres Friday, January 4 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT

Ron Funches (@RonFunches) makes a dramatic wrestling-inspired entrance before hitting the stage for a precisely crafted hour that demonstrates his unique style of comedy. Forgoing the comic tendency to skewer and complain, Ron accentuates the positive in a refreshing set about a wide range of things he loves and enjoys: vision boarding, losing weight, parenting his autistic son, TV, and yes, wrestling. Filmed at The Neptune Theatre in Seattle, Ron Funches: Giggle Fit includes a pre-recorded custom open featuring professional wrestling icon Ric Flair.

James Davis: Live From The Town premieres Friday, January 11 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT

James Davis: Live From The Town is a raucous hour of comedy that puts Davis's second-to-none stage presence and crowd engagement on full display. With a captivating delivery that keeps his audience hanging on his every word, Davis shows incredible range, including an impression of Barack Obama as a party DJ; the invention of Barbecue Davis, his professional golf alter-ego; dissections of social topics from #MeToo to police violence; and hilarious commentary on everything from "pimp uncles" to getting his car keyed. James Davis: Live From The Town was filmed at New Parish Theatre in Oakland, CA.

Chris Distefano: Size 38 Waist premieres Friday, January 18 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT

With a scripted opening featuring Chazz Palminteri, Chris Distefano: Size 38 Waist is a hilarious and personal hour in which the Brooklyn native expounds on his fast-gentrifying home borough, fatherhood, and his own open-minded outlook despite a conservative upbringing. At once a charmer and the product of a grittier New York, Distefano examines Brooklyns new and old with a mindset similarly caught in between. Chris Distefano: Size 38 Waist was filmed - where else? - in Brooklyn, at Roulette Intermedium.

Roy Wood Jr.: No One Loves You premieres January 25 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT

Roy Wood Jr.: No One Loves You is his second one-hour stand-up special for Comedy Central, performed live from Chicago's Vic Theatre. Following the success of his first special, Roy Wood Jr.: Father Figure, the Daily Show correspondent and host of Comedy Central's storytelling show This is Not Happening hilariously explores some of today's most complicated issues, from the plight of the black superhero and national anthem protests to the many failed strategies men have used to avoid #MeToo allegations, Roy covers them all.
