In addition, initial seasons of “The UCB Show,” and “The Amazing Gayl Pile,” the latter a scripted series about one man's misguided quest to conquer the world of home shopping, will be available, as well as seasons of “The Mighty Boosh,” “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” “The Kids In The Hall,” “Funny As Hell” and “Wedlocked,” among others.
Viewers will also have access to stand-up series “Funny as Hell” and “Caroline’s Comedy Hour,” stand-up specials “Matt Besser Breaks The Record” and “Rory Scovel: The Charleston Special,” as well as whole seasons of British favorites, including “A Bit of Fry and Laurie,” “The Mighty Boosh,” “Fawlty Tours," and “The Office” with Ricky Gervais.
