The specials will air on Saturdays, Jan.4 and Jan. 11 at 10pm EST.

Previous editions of Herlarious, most recently this past July, featured a mix of standup routines and sketches. The upcoming specials’ sketches plan on including Kristin Chenoweth, Cheryl Hines, Jeff Probst, Wayne Brady, Jeff Ross, Lance Reddick, Camryn Manheim, Tichina Arnold, Sheryl Underwood, and Jackee Harry.
