Howie Mandel

For the second year, in a strategic partnership with Just For Laughs, The CW Network announced the brand new primetime comedy special, The Howie Mandel All-Star Comedy Gala. Featuring stand-up performances from today's comedic heavyweights such as Jay Pharoah, Iliza Shlesinger, Russell Peters and JB Smoove, this special will premiere Monday, January 16, 8:00-10:00 pm ET/PT on The CW. Recorded at the biggest comedy event in the world, the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and hosted by Howie Mandel, this primetime special also showcases performances from Alonzo Bodden, Jo Koy, Matt Donaher, Ryan Hamilton, Gina Brillon and Tom Papa. Additionally, as Just For Laughs prepares to celebrate its 35th anniversary this year, the special includes comedians paying tribute to some of their favorite comedians from the festival over the past 34 years, such as Amy Schumer, Jim Gaffigan and Wanda Sykes.

Also back with new episodes on CW Seed, The CW's digital network, The Elevator Talk Show with new host Nick Thune is all the late-night talk show you can cram into an eight-foot box. Hosted by comedian Nick Thune, guests on this season of The Elevator Talk Show include John Mulaney, Hannibal Buress, Lauren Lapkus, Scott Aukerman, Tone Bell, Noel Wells, and Blake Griffin, all recorded at the Just for Laughs Festival and all inside one very crowded elevator. The new episodes will debut on CW Seed later this month.
