EPIX TAKES A NEW SLATE OF COMEDY PROGRAMMING TO THE STAGE STARRING SOME OF TODAY’S WITTIEST AND MOST CUTTING-EDGE STAND-UP COMICS 

Jim Norton, Jim Breuer and Lisa Lampanelli Star in The Comedy Lineup Beginning April 24

New York, NY, February 10, 2015 – Premium TV network EPIX announced today that stand-up’s biggest and most off-the-wall comics Jim Norton, Jim Breuer and Lisa Lampanelli will star in three new hour-long Original Comedy Events.  The laughter begins on April 24 with Jim Norton: Contextually Inadequate, followed by Jim Breuer: Comic Frenzy on May 29 and Lisa Lampanelli: Back to the Drawing Board on June 26.  These specials will be available exclusively on EPIX and across all EPIX platforms including online, on demand and via the EPIX app.

Jim Norton: Contextually Inadequate – World Television Premiere: Friday, April 24, at 10pm ET/PT, 9C

Returning to the Somerville Theatre in Boston, MA, for his third consecutive EPIX special, Norton takes on the twisted state of the 21st century. With his customarily caustic point-of-view, Norton tackles everything from Bill Cosby to nude photos to the firing of his radio co-host Anthony Cumia.

Jim Breuer: Comic Frenzy – World Television Premiere: Friday, May 29, at 10pm ET/PT, 9C

Filmed at The Paramount in Huntington, NY, Breuer’s new special focuses on what his life (and all of our lives) truly consist of: dealing with the elderly, becoming our parents’ caretakers, parenting teenagers, and what it takes to be a “marriage warrior.”   As an added bonus, Breuer also sheds some light on what it’s like to perform on “heavy metal-themed” cruises. It’s not nearly as glamorous as one might think.  Join the conversation about Jim Breuer: Comic Frenzy on Twitter with #ComicFrenzy.

Lisa Lampanelli: Back to the Drawing Board – World Television Premiere: Friday, June 26, at 10pm ET/PT, 9C

In Lisa Lampanelli’s fifth stand-up special, “Back to the Drawing Board,” the world’s edgiest insult comic is new, improved, and funnier than ever. Comedy’s Lovable Queen of Mean not only has a radically different look after her 100-pound weight loss and funky haircut, she’s newly divorced and has re-started her life as an over-50 single “girl.” Lisa combines deeply personal bits about her recent life challenges with her trademark audience insults, and the result is a hilarious, insightful blend that is her most revealing, clever, and hysterical stand-up special yet! Join the conversation about Lisa Lampanelli: Back to the Drawing Board on Twitter with #DrawingBoard.

“We are excited to spotlight the work of Norton, Breuer and Lampanelli and their creative, take-no-prisoners, make-no-apologies approach to stand-up comedy,” said Mark Greenberg, President and CEO, EPIX.  “What distinguishes EPIX in this arena is that we celebrate stand-up by letting comics do what they do best, in their favorite environments, and present their work to our viewers uncut and uncensored.”

K., Jim Norton, Tom Papa, Jim Jefferies, Sherri Shepherd, Jim Breuer and Eddie Izzard.  EPIX’s commitment to the craft of comedy also includes the EPIX Original Documentary “The Improv: 50 Years Behind the Brick Wall,” a revealing special that brings together the biggest names in comedy to tell the inside story of America’s first comedy club.

EPIX “COMEDY UNBOUND” SUMMER SEASON CONTINUES WITH
TOM PAPA: FREAKED OUT ON JULY 26 @ 10PM ET
AND
JIM NORTON: AMERICAN DEGENERATE ON AUGUST 23 @ 10PM ET

New York, June 27, 2013 — Premium TV network EPIX announced the continuation of the hilarious season of Comedy Unbound that began earlier this month.

These new programs, along with the rest of the Comedy Unbound showcase, are available exclusively on EPIX, EPIX On Demand, EpixHD.com and EPIX apps across hundreds of devices including Xbox, PS3, Roku, iPads, iPhones and more.

Tom Papa: Freaked Out –Friday, July 26, 2013 at 10PM ET:
For his first EPIX comedy special, and his second hour-long special directed by Rocker/Director Rob Zombie, Tom Papa tackles the hazards of churches, loose change, old age, make-up, raising women, Chinese grocery stores, and magical gnomes. Known for his irreverent appearances on Leno, Letterman and Conan, and for hosting NBC’s “The Marriage Ref”, Papa stands out among his fellow comedians for his optimistic take on the mostly insane world he lives in.

Jim Norton: American Degenerate – Friday, August 23, 2013 at 10PM ET:
Triumphantly returning after his first EPIX comedy special, “Please Be Offended”, Jim Norton continues his self-deprecating humor in his third hour-long stand-up special. Shot in Boston in front of his most hard core fans, Norton leaves nothing embarrassing off the table, skewering a wide range of topics including politics, the media, and, of course, sex. Norton, a New York Times bestselling author, Tonight Show” regular, and the third mic on Sirius/XM’s popular “The Opie and Anthony Show,” performs with the knowledge that some of his remarks will no doubt inspire a wave of self-righteous online complaints by those who are easily offended.

EPIX TAKES THE WRAPS OFF OF NEW ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING TO PREMIERE SUMMER AND FALL OF 2012

New Original Programs Join Prominent Slate of Theatrical Releases Coming to EPIX Including: Hugo, Super 8, Margin Call, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Hunger Games and more

New York, NY, April 25, 2012 – EPIX, the multiplatform premium entertainment service, announced today a slate of original programming that will premiere throughout the summer and fall of 2012. From comedy events to documentaries, big stories on beloved icons from William Shatner to Graham Chapman of Monty Python, EPIX unveiled new original films that are compelling and exciting to a wide range of audiences. EPIX also announced its return to the boxing ring with two of the biggest championship fights premiering exclusively in the U.S. on EPIX this summer.

“These original programs are a great complement to the impressive motion pictures coming to EPIX – the stories are moving, the laughs are real, and the end result is entertaining programs that allow us to give viewers even more reasons to come to EPIX on TV, online and on devices,” said EPIX CEO and President Mark Greenberg.

EPIX SUMMER AND FALL ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING SLATE: 

EPIX Original Comedy Event

Jim Norton: Please Be Offended – Premiering on June 30th

In his first EPIX comedy special, comedian and bestselling author Jim Norton, a regular on Sirius/XM’s “The Opie and Anthony Show” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” performs unfiltered and uncensored in front an audience of rabid fans in Cleveland, Ohio.  Addressing such things as the increasing amount of privacy invasion, the hypocrisy of people who are appalled by this, and the oversensitivity of everyone about almost everything, Norton, in his self-deprecating style, proves that being offended can often be hilarious.

EPIX Original Documentary

William Shatner’s Get a Life! – Premiering in July

Based on Shatner’s hugely popular book, this film examines the mystery, longevity and the cultural phenomena of Star Trek and its long-obsessed fans known as “Trekkers.”  On the surface, the film is an exploration of strangers who have for years attended conventions which looked foolish and almost laughable to some – but what Shatner discovers is the many secrets and hidden motives behind these individuals’ compulsion to attend these events.  The end result is a film that reveals a fun and touching side of the fanfare surrounding Star Trek, and examines the thrill of what’s happening at these fantasy conventions and the enduring popularity of the film and TV series as Shatner further embraces his role as Captain James T. Kirk and his own impact.

EPIX Original Movie

Roger Corman’s Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader in 3D – Premiering in August

In an update to the great genre pictures of the ‘50s, Roger Corman’s first ever 3D film Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader follows a college coed who uses an experimental drug to transform herself into a popular beauty – but at a huge price.  Produced by Corman along with his producing partner/wife Julie Corman, the movie stars Jena Sims (The Vampire Diaries), Sean Young (Blade Runner), Treat Williams (Hair, Prince of the City, Everwood), Ryan Merriman (Pretty Little Liars), A.J. Lamas (Leave it to Lamas), Mary Woronov (Eating Raoul), Ted Raimi (Spider-Man), with cameo appearances by Corman himself and director John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Animal House, The Blues Brothers).  Acclaimed visual effects artist Kevin O’Neill (Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula, Blade and Piranha 3D) directs.

EPIX Original Documentary

Flight 800: A 14-Year Investigation Cracks the Case – Premiering in September

It was called “the largest aviation investigation in US and world history” by the man who led it in 1996.  But it was also the most controversial.  Now, a team of insiders from that investigation come forward in this feature documentary to blow the lid off a multi-agency cover-up of what really happened to TWA Flight 800.  The team was brought together by an extraordinarily persistent scientist 20 years their junior who himself spent 14 years investigating the crash.  A riveting story of intense personal journeys and a grand-scale exposé with breathtaking implications.

EPIX Original Movie

A Liar’s Autobiography – The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman – Premiering in November

Based on the memoir of the late Monty Python member, Graham Chapman, who died in 1989, the 3D animated biopic tells the story of Chapman’s life in the famously atypical Python style. Featuring recordings of Chapman that he made of his book in 1982 and matched with recorded sound from present, the film reunites members of the Monty Python troupe and brings Chapman back to life in a tour de force of animation through 17 different animation styles from 15 different animators.
