18 June 2012 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Comedian and actor Joe Torry will host Uptown Comic, a new comedy series that also premieres tonight on Bounce TV, following Omar Gooding’s Family Time, which I previously profiled Here. Torry's show features live stage and skit performances by emerging comedians from around the country, and is produced by Rainforest Films, who brought us Think Like A Man. It is filmed in front of a live studio audience at the Center Stage in Atlanta. Drawing from his past work hosting HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Torry offers his insight into the differences in today’s broadcast comedic landscape, why he prefers old school comedians, and his reaction to Think Like A Man. Uptown Comic premieres tonight at 9:30 Et. S&A: Can you give us a brief overview of the show and what viewers can expect from it? Jt: Viewers can expect to laugh their tails off for one. »
