Comedy Central’s Half Hour Lineup For Season Five is Stacked

downloadDuring the first four seasons of Comedy Central’s The Half Hour, the network has featured numerous comedians who were breaking out or have since. Whether you’re watching a new episode to see someone you recognize or to find your new favorite, the series has become a go to for fans of stand-up comedy.

The fifth season of The Half Hour looks to offer more top notch comedians. The ones that are familiar to us are ones we really, really like. The names we don’t recognize are most likely just as strong.

Here’s the lineup:

  • Cy Amundson
  • Erik Bergstrom
  • Ahmed Bharoocha
  • Matthew Broussard
  • Naomi Ekperigin
  • Nate Fernald
  • Noah Gardenswartz
  • Emily Heller
  • Martha Kelly
  • Joe Machi
  • Drew Michael
  • Aparna Nancherla
  • Jacqueline Novak
  • Mike Recine
  • Ramon Rivas II
  • Ali Siddiq
  • Nick Turner

The biggest highlight on this list for us has to be Joe Machi. He took Last Comic Standing by storm and has repeatedly made us belly laugh whenever we see him. Some other performers that we have seen and really liked include Aparna Nancherla, Martha Kelly, and Emily Heller. We’re excited most for those, but we’ll be watching every episode and are pretty sure that there will be several more comedians that will become new favorites of ours.

The 2016 version of The Half Hour will be filmed in New Orleans. As we find out more details about the series, we’ll be sure to let you know!
