Comedy Central (formerly Paramount Comedy) is a cable and satellite channel that shows mainly American sitcoms imports. Amongst re-runs of classic British series and stand-up shows like Live At The Apollo, it is now expanding its own slate of original UK content. A series of short-lived 1990s commissions saw early television work for some now star names, including Matt Lucas and Simon Pegg.
