When the first annual Comedy Awards premieres this Sunday, at 9/8c, it will air simultaneously on Comedy Central, Spike TV, CMT, Logo, TV Land and VH1. And, as if those aren't enough viewing options, the show will also stream online at thecomedyawards.com/webcast. I heard they wanted it to be available on refrigerators too, but the technology hasn't quite been perfected. Maybe next year.
Now, some of the benefits of watching the Webcast are obvious. It's easier to watch on the toilet, and it allows viewers to easily tab over to their favorite porn sites. But beyond that, with the Webcast, you'll also get to watch the online-exclusive Pre-Show. It starts at 8:45 and features commentary by the great Andy Daly and Jen Kirkman along with red carpet interviews by Christian Finnegan. Andy and Jen will also host a series of short intermissions throughout the show with more interviews and coverage of the backstage press conference.
Among the interviewees are Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Louis CK, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Kristin Schaal, Olivia Munn, Craig Robinson, Questlove & The Roots, Ty Burrell, Chloe Moretz, The Gregory Brothers, Rob Corddry and more. Only a crazy person would want to miss that!
