The Comedy Central Presents half-hour special was a staple goal for many stand-up comedians. It helped bring now popular comedians, such as Dane Cook, Jim Gaffigan and Mitch Hedberg, into the mainstream. Comedy Central did not order a new season of Presents for 2012, but it will be reborn as a new series of stand-up specials called, The Half Hour. And a dozen great comics will tape specials for the inaugural season next week. We’re excited to see half-hours from the following:
