The first annual broadcast of The Comedy Awards, brought to you by MTV Networks and Comedy Central, goes live tomorrow night, Sunday April 10, on Comedy Central, MTV, Spike TV, VH1 and other MTV channels at 9PM EST, but if you tune in to watch The Comedy Awards webcast online you’ll get even more. The webcast will feature an exclusive online Pre-Show, interviews, and other extras.
According to a post on The Comedy Awards website, “Some of the benefits of watching the Webcast are obvious. It’s easier to watch on the toilet, and it allows viewers to easily tab over to their favorite porn sites. But beyond that, with the Webcast, you’ll also get to watch the online-exclusive Pre-Show. It starts at 8:45 and features commentary by the great Andy Daly and Jen Kirkman along with red carpet interviews by Christian Finnegan. Andy and Jen will also host a series of short intermissions throughout the show with more interviews and coverage of the backstage press conference.”
Webcast exclusive interviews include Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, The Gregory Brothers, Chloe Moretz, Questlove & The Roots, Andy Samberg, Kristin Schall, John Steward, Louise C.K., Rob Corrdry and more.
Additionally, The Comedy Awards will be encouraging fans to comment and interact throughout the award show with the #ComedyAwards hashtag on Twitter. According to a press release, “During the on-air broadcast, Comedy Central will feature the Twitter hashtag.” Webcast hosts and other talent associated with the awards show will also be live tweeting during the event.
