Half Hour Comedy Hour
7 October 2007 | by (Costa Mesa, CA) – See all my reviews

the Half (1/2) Hour Comedy Hour was a great show that originally ran on Comedy Central in its infancy. It was composed of (mostly) short clips of comedians doing their stand-up acts live on stage. One of the best things about this program was it showed so many different comedians, many of whom were relative unknowns or upstarts in the very early stages of their careers.

I can't recall the name of the guy who was originally hosting the show (is it Mario Joyner??), but I think this gentlemen is currently can be found on TV wearing a red Pippi Longstocking style red wig in a Wendy's commercial. He did good intros and I believe was a budding comedian himself

I wish this show was still on in its same form, it would be a great way to see many different examples of live comedy in a short format program. Instead, Comedy Central has basically gone a different direction with almost no stand-up on the network, showing mainly sitcom type programs, fake news, and occasional movies.
