At 10 p.m. May 29 on EPIX and all its platforms, prepare yourself to laugh till you drop as “Jim Breuer: Comic Frenzy” hits your television!

Filmed at The Paramount in Huntington, N.Y., this hour-long special gives fans everything they have come to expect from Breuer. Covering everything from dealing with elderly parents, caretaking, teenagers and becoming a “marriage warrior” — it is one laugh after another.

Breuer has more than 20 years of stand-up comedy experience, and has been named one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.” Getting his break in 1995 when he joined the “Saturday Night Live” cast, and made appearances on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Marriage Ref.”

He also found feature film success when joining the equally hilarious Dave Chapelle in the movie “Half Baked.” He has also appeared in such films as “Zookeeper,” “Titan A.E.” and “Beer League.”

This is not Breuer’s first comedy special. “I’m thrilled to be partnering with EPIX on my second comedy special with the network,” he said. “Standup comedy is my passion and my life, and now I’m excited to share my new material with my fans.”

EPIX is a premium movie and original programming channel that brings the latest film, original documentaries, comedy and music events on demand, online and on devices. For more information about what EPIX has to offer, go to

Breuer has always managed to make me, and my entire family for that matter, laugh till it hurt. Spending an hour listening to him talk about life had all of us relating to the issues he brings up and finding the humor right along with him.

I have never seen anyone who can imitate throwing up as well as Breuer can — and be able to laugh while he does it! I know my daughter got serious laughs as Breuer talked about his father and that whole set of problems. Thanks Jim for that!

So prepare for some Friday night laughs as Jim Breuer does exactly what he does best — finding the humor in life and then pointing it out to the rest of us to laugh at.
