1. Stand-Up Marathon (Monday)
Our Monday stand-up marathon will get you caught up on comedy classics. Included in the lineup are George Carlin's 1992 special Jammin' in New York, Ellen DeGeneres' Here and Now (2002), and Robin Williams' Weapons of Self-Destruction (2000). You can also check out repeat broadcasts of Bill Cosby's recent live special, Far From Finished, at 11am ET and midnight ET. Plus, performances from Roseanne Barr, Wanda Sykes, Jeff Dunham, Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan, and more. View our holiday schedule for more detail.
2. Roast Marathon (Tuesday and Wednesday)
Christmas is over, which means it's time to chuck all the love-your-neighbour, hug-your-family crap and let the snark back in. That's where our Roast Marathon can help: with over two days of nonstop insults, there will be enough abuse and indignity to wash you clean of the Christmas spirit. Among the celebrities getting skewered on Tuesday and Wednesday are Joan Rivers, Bob Saget, James Franco, Charlie Sheen, and Donald Trump. Again, see our holiday schedule for more information.
3. Match Game Marathon (Thursday)
Our Match Game marathon features only the best parts of the last season: the best guest panelists, the best contestants, the best of Emma Hunter's hair, the best of Darrin Rose's beard, the best of Sean Cullen acting absurd, and the best of Debra DiGiovanni getting belligerent. That, or just a straightforward selection of the top episodes from season two.
4. Police Academy Marathon (Thursday-Friday)
It might say 2014 on your iCal, but your TV is stuck in 1984. On Thursday at midnight, 2am and 4am ET, we're airing the eighties classic Police Academy, starring Steve Guttenberg, Bubba Smith, and Kim Cattrall before she was such-a-Samantha. Then on Friday night in the same time slots, catch Police Academy 2 and find out if the recruits have actually learned to fire a gun.
5. Just For Laughs: All Access Marathon (Friday)
While our stand-up marathon focuses on the oldies, the Just For Laughs: All Access marathon features performances from some of the most popular comedians today. Get your stand-up fix this Friday.
