Film Vault Friday: Brand Old
Am I the only person who likes the new Comedy Central branding? There’s no shortage of snark online, from people calling it boring/cold/heartless/unfunny.
Fair enough. But for this week’s Film Vault Friday, I enter into evidence the following: Exhibit A, promos from the Ha! network. Exhibit B, promos from the Comedy Channel. Americans over 30 – and select other comedy nerds – will know that the two cable stations merged in 1991 and became Comedy Central.
Whatever you think of the new look, you’ll be forced to admit it’s better than it was 20 years ago. Behold, the face of Comedy Central’s past.
