Fall into funny with The Comedy Network's fall lineup

There’s nothing funny about back-to-school, colder temperatures and the countdown to winter, but The Comedy Networks laughs it off with saucy specials, long-awaited returns and all-new hilarity.

Nothing says back to school like a blitz of hilarious specials including the killer ROAST OF CHARLIE SHEEN on Monday, Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. ET.

When the roasting is done, rock out with JUST FOR LAUGHS: AMP’D (Saturday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. ET), a hilarious mix of music and comedy from the 2011 Just for Laughs Festival, hosted by ”Weird Al” 

Yankovic and including the return of Tom Green’s Organized Rhyme. Then, leave it to comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham to take it to the next level in a crazy, one-hour special, JEFF DUNHAM: CONTROLLED CHAOS (Sunday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. ET).

Nothing and no one is off limits when fan-favourite TOSH.0 returns Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. ET with more sarcastic dissections of pop culture and the funniest of online videos. The following night, catch the TV debut of online sensation and Ha-Ha-Halifax-based sketch comedy troupe Picnicface in PICNICFACE premiering Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10:30 p.m. ET. Then, The Comedy Network gives viewers a reason to stay in on Friday nights with the new outrageous original series COCKTALES, a weekly panel of guys’ guys that give “let it all hang out” a whole new meaning, beginning Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. ET.
