Comedy Central might be getting a comedy/variety/magic show. According to Deadline, the network has given a pilot order to Sleight of Mouth, a weekly show produced by Chris Hardwick and hosted by comedian/magician Justin Willman that will fuse magic, sketch comedy, and @midnight-style social media interaction. Each week, Willman – who has appeared on The Tonight Show, Ellen, Chelsea Lately, and more – will “tackle a thought-provoking topic with sketches, social experiments, guest comedians, and interactive content.” Click through to watch Willman appear on The Tonight Show back in December.
