Bill Burr and Al Madrigal’s production company All Things Comedy is going into business with Comedy Central. The network announced today that it’s signed a production deal with All Things Comedy, which will include a half-hour stand-up series hosted by Burr, featuring some of his favorite comedians as well as three one-hour specials under Burr’s name. The first special, Bill Burr Presents Paul Virzi: I’ll Say This, is slated to debut on November 2.
“We are all very excited here at ATC to be in business with Comedy Central. They gave me my first national exposure with a half-hour special back when I was just starting out,” said Burr on the deal. “I couldn’t be happier that our first release will be with Paul Virzi. He’s a great friend and comedian and his special is incredible!” Comedy Central has not yet revealed the rest of the comedian lineup or when we can expect the half-hour series to debut.
