Comedy Dynamics will also present programming highlighting a series of different themes each month that include content specific to Back to School, Labor Day, Grandparent’s Day, Halloween and more. In addition to holiday-specific content, Comedy Dynamics will also focus on celebrating culture with blocks of comedy dedicated to showcasing stars from across the globe.
“Stand-up comedy has, arguably, never been more popular, with filmed specials enjoying record ratings and comedy clubs filled to capacity every night,” Erick Opeka, president of Cinedigm Digital Networks, said in a statement. “Comedy Dynamics is leading the way — revolutionizing the television landscape with hundreds of hours of award-winning hit specials from an eclectic mix of groundbreaking legends and rising superstars.”
