This Spring, truTV Premieres New Seasons of Original Hits Comedy Knockout, The Carbonaro Effect and Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack
truTV is ushering in Spring and bringing the laughs with all-new seasons of three of its original comedies: Comedy Knockout, The Carbonaro Effect, and Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack.
Comedy Knockout Season 3 Premieres Wednesday, May 2 at 11pm ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes
Comedy Knockout pits comedians against each other in a series of fast-paced challenges. In each episode, host Damien Lemon (Broad City, Crashing) sends three comics into a battle of high stakes comedic gameplay. The comedians throw roast-like, rapid-fire jabs at their opponents, and each show ends with one comedian crowned champion, one eliminated, and one forced to face the crowd to apologize for going down in shameful defeat. The third season of the series kicks off Wednesday, May 2 at 11pm ET/PT with two back-to-back special episodes, starting with a Losers Special featuring the comics who have always come up short on past episodes, Dave Hill, Tone Bell and Julian McCullough. The episode will be followed by (you guessed it) a Champions Special featuring the series’ past big winners Noah Gardenswartz, Megan Neuringer, and Clayton English.
The Carbonaro Effect Season 4 Premieres Thursday, May 17 at 10pm ET/PT
truTV’s Critics’ Choice Award-nominated comedic series The Carbonaro Effect stars Michael Carbonaro, magician by trade and prankster at heart. In each new episode, Michael performs ingenious tricks on unsuspecting members of the public, all caught on hidden camera. Watch jaws drop when he causes a man to time travel into the past, or turns a tuft of hair into a puppy. Whether posing as a librarian, museum curator or seemingly unremarkable store clerk, Michael Carbonaro’s effect on people will leave you laughing out loud with his bewildering and thrilling illusions.
Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack Season 2 Premieres Friday, June 1 at 11:30p ET/PT
Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack is a weekly half-hour series comprised of original short-form programming from some of the biggest names in comedy. Presented by sketch comedy legend Rachel Dratch and produced in-house by truTV, the inventive late-night show curates a carousel of premium, bite-sized programming and features a variety of cinematic styles, such as animation, music videos, scripted shorts and mockumentaries.
