Happy 20th Birthday, Comedy Central

Posted By on Fri, Apr 1, 2011 at 3:35 PM

I guess it seems like Comedy Central has been on the cable lineup forever, but there was a time twenty years and one day ago when the idea of an all comedy network featuring American Pie sequels and Futurama episodes was just a dream. However, these days my life would be a hollow empty place without Comedy Central, whether that's the memories of Reno 911! and the Chappelle Show or the stellar doubleheader of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. If nothing else, I will always thank Comedy Central for giving me Kids in the Hall episodes to watch after school as a teenager. How could I possibly thank a television network that has given me so much? Actually, it's a corporate entity, so I'm sure they'll be ok without my thanks, right?

I wanted to include clips of my favorite Comedy Central show ever, VS., where groups of people who dislike each other competed in an impossible game show, but YouTube was no use, so you get highlights from Let's Bowl instead.
