No, fucking joke my TiVo used to be programmed I would say four or five years ago with Comedy Central goodness like MadTV reruns, Reno911, and Daily Show with Jon Stewart. So, how stoked was I that the long ago announced new Comedy Central animated series Gajillionaires would feature a stellar cast that included Rob Corddry(Daily Show) , Thomas Lennon(Reno 911) , and Comedy Central’s latest superstar Jordan Peele all coming in to give us a vocal orgy of funny.
Obviously all these cats have done awesome work since their comedy stylings on Comedy Central and it would be silly not to mention it here. As mentioned ex-MadTV cast member Jordan Peele is co-star of the hit sketch series Jordan & Peele which has been a smash success since its inception earlier this year that has already claimed President Obama as a fan! Thomas Lennon has certainly been keeping busy too since the glory days of Reno911 usually showing up in bit parts, my personal favorite being when he played ‘Carl’ in Bad Teacher but Jesus fuck he was also a doctor who FIXED BATMAN!! Throw in Rob Corddry who since leaving Daily Show would give us the Emmy winning series Children’s Hospital which has already spun off giving us NTSF:SD:SVU starring the great Paul Scheer(The League) , and you’ve got a great new series.
Check out a clip for Gajillionaires below, a show about two brothers (Lennon and Corddry)who are out to make sure the top 1% of America’s wealthiest citizens stay that way. The show is set to premier next year on Comedy Central, coming on the heels of the network’s most recent sneak peak for their other new series TripTank.Tweet
