The creator of Comedy Central, former President of Court TV, and author of Constant Comedy: How I Started Comedy Central and Lost My Sense of Humor, Art Bell joins us this week on the Shadows Podcast!

Art Bell had an idea for a 24/7 all-comedy channel. While working at HBO, he pitched the idea to the head of programming and was told, “It’s the worst idea I’ve ever heard.” He didn’t let the rejection crush his dream. That idea eventually became known as Comedy Central.

Art talks about his upbringing, why humor is essential in every aspect of life, his jobs at CBS, HBO, creating the Comedy Channel, the merger with Ha! to create Comedy Central, his time as President of Court TV, and his book, Constant Comedy.
