The Comedy Awards 2012 is the second annual blockbuster event dedicated to celebrating the art of comedy.
This historic, one-night-only celebration will honor the most talented writers, directors, actors and stand-ups, who provided the laugh track to our lives this past year: the pioneers who pushed boundaries; the TV shows that we rushed home for; the movies that are etched into our collective pop-culture memory; the stand-up comedians and the viral videos that make us laugh every day.
The Comedy Awards will take place on April 28, 2012 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. The show will premiere on Comedy Central on Sunday, May 6, 2012.
The Comedy Awards are produced by Don Mischer Productions, the production team behind such legendary events as The Oscars, The Emmys, Super Bowl halftime shows, and Olympic opening and closing ceremonies. Don Mischer, Casey Patterson, EVP, Event Production, Viacom Entertainment Group and Charlie Haykel are the Executive Producers. Juliane Hare is Producer. Beth McCarthy Miller, the Peabody and DGA Award-Winning and Emmy® nominated Director, will once again direct The Comedy Awards.
