ATX UNCENSORED(ISH) TO PREMIERE ON THE CW AUSTIN MONDAY, 9/28 AT 9:45PM CT
Austin, TX – September 15, 2015 – Austin’s first (and only) news satire show, ATX Uncensored(ish), will premiere on The CW Austin on Monday, Sept. 28. It will be a first for Austin – a daily news comedy show that’s sure to become a local institution (or cancelled after a few underwhelming weeks).
The host of ATX Uncensored(ish), Brian Gaar, is a nationally-known comedian based in Austin. His hour-long standup special, “Jokes I Wrote at Work,” is available now on Hulu. He can also be heard on the Raw Dog comedy channel on SiriusXM radio and he was named one of the funniest people on Twitter by Playboy and Paste magazines. His jokes have appeared everywhere from The Ellen DeGeneres Show to Funny or Die.
ATX Uncensored(ish) is the only show of its kind in Austin (and maybe even in the nation … we’re too lazy to look it up). It’s entirely produced in Austin and will give an edgy, satirical take on local news, incorporating a variety of platforms and styles. In addition to Brian Gaar, correspondents Kath Barbadoro and Joe Barlow will hit the streets of Austin, poking fun at the city we all love. It’s kind of a mix between The Daily Show and Tosh.0, if they were set in Austin and sandwiched in between shows by Steve Harvey and judges yelling at people.
“We want the show to be funny, engaging, and true to The CW Austin brand,” said Gaar. “So I’ll also be refereeing paternity disputes and starring in a terrible show about vampires.”
About ATX Uncensored(ish): ATX Uncensored(ish) is Austin’s only late night comedy show that is definitely the funniest thing you’ve ever seen. (We mean hopefully the funniest thing you’ve ever seen). We’re laughing about the crazy s#!t that happens in Central Texas and nobody is safe from our razor sharp wit. We’ll make fun of everything and everyone except some people and some things. Host Brian Gaar has never been on TV before, so we are pretty much nailing this.
ATX Uncensored(ish) will air Monday through Friday at 9:45 pm on The CW Austin. You can also watch episodes online at www.atxuncensoredish.com.
