Channel profile

Comedy Central – a part of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) outside of the United States – continues to be the world’s biggest comedy network seen in more than 120 countries and territories globally via 29 locally programmed channels.

With a 30+ year legacy for making people laugh, Comedy Central is renowned for its stable of international and local hits appealing to different types of humour, from traditional to satire to sketches to popular sitcoms.

Established programming favourites adored around the globe include The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, South Park and Workaholics with brand new international commissions, Brotherhood and I Live with Models, launching in 2015. Additionally, the brand has seen success with localized versions of U.S. originated comedy formats such as Stand Up, Drunk History and the Comedy Central Roast in the U.K., Spain, New Zealand and South Africa.

With more than 73 million fans across the globe on social media, Comedy Central has cemented its position as the ultimate digital destination for comedy, successfully doubling its footprint in the last two years. Its ability to resonate around the world – defying geographical boundaries and cultural differences – is a result of its ongoing effort to deliver laughs on every platform. From the launch of a brand new digital content portal in the U.K. with bespoke, made-for-online commissions (including KSI-Demolished which attracted 7 million video views to date), to the launch of a South Park app in Northern Europe (downloaded more than 850,000 times, making it the second most successful Viacom VOD app globally) as well as a partnership with Samsung in Spain to create the first ever Comedy Central app for smart TVs; Comedy Central enjoys stellar growth in ‘engagement’ powered by high quality, hysterical long and short form content on every platform.
