In Canadian Channels, Comedy by CDN Viewer

Commanding the stage this January, The Comedy Network delivers marquee access to the hottest stand-up stars in two, new and exclusive original stand-up shows, hosted by two of the biggest names in the business, Trevor Noah and Katherine Ryan.

Canadian-born provocative comedian Katherine Ryan hosts the all-new Comedy original series, THE STAND-UP SHOW WITH KATHERINE RYAN, premiering Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 10 p.m. ET. Shot during the Just For Laughs Festival in Montréal last summer, the eight-episode, one-hour stand-up series showcases a jam-packed lineup of the buzziest names in Comedy – from seasoned stand-ups to edgy up-and-comers.

But first, Comedy presents the exclusive premiere of the two-part, one-hour gala special, TREVOR NOAH @ JFL, premiering Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 10 p.m. ET. Shot last summer at Montréal’s Place des Arts theatre, the host of the iconic Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning series THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH delivers a winning mix of observational comedy and biting political satire in his role as gala host, before introducing an impressive lineup of comedians, including:

In THE STAND-UP SHOW WITH KATHERINE RYAN (premiering Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 10 p.m. ET), host Ryan proves that while she may be a household name in her adoptive England, she’s never forgotten her Canadian roots. Equal parts classy, raw, elegant, and crude, she brings her unique brand of self-aware humour to Montréal’s L’Astral Theatre while showcasing some of the coolest comedians from last summer’s Just For Laughs Festival.

With an edgy, small-club vibe, THE STAND-UP SHOW WITH KATHERINE RYAN delivers social commentary, laughter, and a stern warning to anyone thinking of visiting Sarnia, Ontario.

Full episodes of TREVOR NOAH @ JFL and THE STAND-UP SHOW WITH KATHERINE RYAN are available on demand on TheComedyNetwork.ca following each premiere and will be available on Crave after their broadcast run. Off-stage catch Noah in his regular gig on THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH Monday – Thursday at 11 p.m. ET/PT on The Comedy Network.
