Comedy Central is adding two new podcasts to its Global Podcast Network: “Stand-Up with Chris Distefano” and “Your 2 Dads with Sean and Julian.”
“Stand-Up with Chris Distefano,” launching April 18, dives into a library of stand-up routines for a weekly listening party between Distefano and his in-studio producer, Nicole Boyce. Pulling anything from modern bits to decades-old ones, the pair listen to and analyze classic routines, talk comedy, and take calls from some of Distefano’s comedian friends.
Distefano is an actor, comedian, and host of the Comedy Central’s series “Stupid Questions with Chris Distefano.” His one-hour stand-up special “Chris Distefano: Size 38 Waist” premiered in January on Comedy Central. He recently signed an overall deal with the network, which will include a second hour-long stand-up special, an animated series, and an unscripted series. In the past he has appeared on MTV’s “Guy Code vs. Girl Code.”
“Your 2 Dads with Sean and Julian,” launching May 20, is the network’s first lifestyle podcast. It will feature Sean O’Connor and Julian McCullough sharing funny stories about fatherhood and their opinions about parenting.
McCullough’s one-hour stand-up special “Julian McCullough: Maybe I’m a Man” premiered June 8, 2018 on Comedy Central. He has also appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Conan,” and NPR’s “This American Life.”
O’Connor is a stand-up comedian and writer. He’s written for “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” and was head writer on Comedy Central’s “Hood Adjacent.” His half-hour stand-up special aired on Comedy Central as part of the network’s “The Half Hour” series.
Both shows will post new episodes weekly on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other major platforms. They join the recently announced companion podcast to Comedy Central’s documentary-series “Klepper.”
Comedy Central’s Global Podcast Network started in 2017 and includes “The Daily Show: Ears Edition,” “The Jim Jefferies Show,” “Roast Battle,” and “You Up with Nikki Glaser,” among other podcasts.
