The holidays are a time to spend with family. That is, if your family consists of people like Stephen Colbert, Red Green, Russell Peters, Amy Poehler/Schumer, Jerry Seinfeld, and the entire cast of Big Bang. This December, Comedy's got enough to stand-up, sitcom, and movie marathons to keep you laughing into 2014.
Firstly, we've got a whole bunch of Christmas-themed stand-up specials coming your way. There's Jeff Dunham’s Very Special Christmas Special, airing Friday, December 13 at 11:00pm ET and Saturday, December 21 at 11:00pm ET. And you can check out A Russell Peters Christmas this coming Saturday, December 14 at 11:00pm ET and Friday, December 20 at 11:00pm ET. Or if political satire is more your thing, visit our holiday show page to watch Stephen Colbert's A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All right on your computer.
December 23 will be all about the colours green and red—but not because they're Christmas-y. Comedy is dedicating the whole day to Red Green, our nation's most Santa-esque comedian. (He kind of looks like a Santa who only gives out duct tape.) 'Tis The Red Green Season will feature Christmas specials, stand-up programs, and Red Green's top 20 episodes, starting Monday, December 23 at 6:00am ET and running until midnight.
The holidays are a time to surround yourself with comforts, so we're also serving up a large helping of comfort food for your eyeballs in the form of TV reruns. All day Christmas Eve, you can veg out to holiday episodes of Seinfeld, Community, Parks and Recreation, The Big Bang Theory, and Corner Gas. And if that's not enough nerd for you, sit yourself down in front of the tube on Christmas Day for A Very Big Bang Christmas, our Big Bang season six marathon starting Wednesday, December 25 at 11:00am ET and ending Thursday, December 26 at 12:00am ET.
After the presents have been unwrapped and the turkey's been eaten, allow us to administer to your post-Chrismas hangover with over a week of marathon comedy programming. There's the Best of SNL marathon on Friday, December 27; the Corner Gas and Inside Amy Schumer marathons on Saturday, December 28; Just for Laughs and Key & Peele marathons on Sunday, December 29; a full day of stand-up specials on Monday, December 30; a roast marathon on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day; a Match Game marathon January 2; a Police Academy marathon on January 2 and January 3; and more.
