Sometimes Comedy Central really just lives up to its name, and tomorrow is one of those times. Starting Thursday, October 17 (at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT), the comedy-centric network will be streaming 24 straight hours of its half-hour stand-up specials on its Stand-Up YouTube channel.

The “24 Hours of Stand-Up” livestream—featuring stand-up performances from over 60 comedians—will also serve as lead-up to the season premiere of “Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents…”
