THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW Debuts on truTV 8/3
THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW is coming to truTV with 16 all-new one-hour episodes - and the network will broadcast it live for the first time on national cableOn Thursday, August 3 at 11pm ET, fan-favorite comedian Chris Gethard will bring his rowdy, no-holds-barred weekly hour-long call-in talk show - aptly named THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW - to truTV and LIVE national TV audiences for the first time. Chris and the gang will welcome his long-time friends and - truTV's own - IMPRACTICAL JOKERS (Joe Gatto, James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano) to celebrate the series' first show on truTV! It will be piñata pandemonium as viewers call in to pick one of many piñatas that will be decorating the set. Then, one of the IMPRACTICAL JOKERS will destroy it for them LIVE on air with the viewer winning what's inside - and it could even be one of the Jokers' prized possessions. The hit series features Gethard as he attempts to ring-lead a panel of comedian friends and oddballs, along with a live studio audience, who participate in games, tackle bizarre stunts and react to the controlled chaos around them. Throughout its rise from live stage show to NYC public access program to hit cult TV series, THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW has cultivated a passionate community of fans (weirdos), generated significant critical-acclaim (objective weirdos), and attracted a host of A-list celebrity guests including Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, P. Diddy, Lena Dunham, Paul Giamatti and more (famous weirdos). THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW is produced by Funny Or Die. Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Owen Burke, Chris Gethard, JD Amato, Anna Wenger and AGI Entertainment Media & Management's Brian Stern serve as executive producers.
