Since the release of his 2012 COMEDY CENTRAL broadcast and DVD/digital release of his new stand-up special "New in Town," John Mulaney is poised to become somewhat more recognizable after being vaguely familiar to the millions who watch "Saturday Night Live," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and more. A wizened comedy veteran at 30 years of age, Mulaney began his career in New York's East Village as part of the two-man "Oh Hello Show" with comedian Nick Kroll. He has since performed everywhere from Ireland, to Australia to Grand Isle, Nebraska. He'll kind of perform anywhere. He was named one of Variety's 10 "Comics to Watch" in 2008--the same year he began working at "Saturday Night Live" where he's since appeared as a Weekend Update correspondent and co-created such characters as "Stefon" with Bill Hader.
Jeff Ross is the host of COMEDY CENTRAL's weekly half-hour topical series "The Burn with Jeff Ross" and picks up where the Roasts leave off. Ross and a panel of guest comedians skewer the week's pop culture topics in-studio, and hit the streets on the "Roaster Coaster" to take aim at "Public Enemies" like drunks, hipsters and zombie lovers. In addition, Ross has headlined the last nine COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts and roasted the likes of Roseanne, Charlie Sheen, Joan Rivers, Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, and Donald Trump. As a stand-up comic, Ross has appeared on dozens of TV shows, including "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Conan," "Last Call with Carson Daly," "The View," and "Real Time with Bill Maher." He also continues to perform regularly for American men and women in uniform stationed all over the world.
Amy Schumer stars in COMEDY CENTRAL's newest series, "Inside Amy Schumer." Through a series of scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews, Schumer explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and the general clusterf*ck that is life. Ten episodes begin on Tuesday, April 30 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Schumer's other television credits include the one-hour stand-up special, "Amy Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff" (COMEDY CENTRAL's second-highest rated special of 2012); one of the featured comedians on the "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Roseanne," following her breakout performance on the "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Charlie Sheen;" and appearances in FX's "Louie" and Season 2 of HBO's "Girls." In 2011, she filmed the feature "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley and "Price Check," an independent feature opposite Parker Posey which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
