NEW YORK, March 29, 2018 - Three years after releasing Trevor Moore: High in Church, Moore returns to Comedy Central with his second one-hour special, Trevor Moore: The Story of Our Times, debuting on Friday, April 20 at Midnight ET/PT. For the first time ever, Comedy Central will be streaming live on Facebook for a full 24 hours. Starting on Thursday, April 19 at Midnight ET, Moore will host a 24 hour talk show on Comedy Central Stand-Up's Facebook where he will try to solve every problem the world faces; from the Middle East to whether or not aliens are real. He will interview guests, take phone calls and moderate debates covering hot-button issues... all while fighting to stay awake through the whole 24 hours.
"Comedy Central is literally letting us take over their facilities for 24 hours so we're going to use that time to crowd source a solution to every single problem the world has. We'll take phone calls, host debates, interview people off the street and at the end of the day, hopefully we'll have fixed racism, figured out a compromise on gun control, eliminated the wage gap and found Kony," said Moore.
Moore's special finds him struggling through an insufferable brunch with his girlfriend (Esther Povitsky) and her friends (Alana Johnston, Amanda Seales, and Theo Von) as they discuss all the relevant issues of the day. Naturally, he can't stop himself from expressing his own views on the topics through a series of outrageous songs and music videos, including "My Computer Became Self Aware" and "Bullies."
Leading up to the on-air premiere, cc.com and the CC App will feature preview clips from the special starting on Friday, April 13. On Saturday, April 21, the full special will be available in the CC App and on CC.com, and on Tuesday, April 24, the uncensored version will be available for digital download. The album, released by Comedy Central Records, will feature three new songs not in the special and will be available for digital download on Friday, April 20 with pre-order starting on Friday, April 6. Fans can follow Moore on Twitter at @itrevormoore and Comedy Central Stand-Up at @standup to join the social conversation around the special.
