Comedy Central announced today that its second annual Comedy Awards is slated for April 28, 2012, once again taping in New York.
The event, honoring the funny men and women in film, television and standup, will take place at Hammerstein Ballroom. Don Mischer Productions returns to produce the show with the network and Viacom Entertainment Group EVP of event production Casey Patterson.
“As much as I’d like to brag that we rig this in favor of our friends, the truth is probably more gratifying to the winners,” said Comedy Central head of original programming and production Kent Alterman. “They are chosen by a massive voting body of their comedy peers.”
Some of the attendees last year included David Letterman, Eddie Murphy, Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jon Stewart and Kristen Wiig.
“With the combination of the comedic talent, the city of New York and how successfully the show came together earlier this year, we couldn’t be more excited about producing The Comedy Awards again in 2012,” Don Mischer added.
