Justin Willman Lands Comedy Central Special from Chris Hardwick

Comedy Central will air a special with comedian and magician Justin Willman, Variety has learned.

Exec produced by Chris Hardwick, the special titled “Sleight of Mouth With Justin Willman” features sketch comedy, magic, field pieces and cannabis-fueled social experiments with guest comedians Doug Benson and Paul Scheer.

“Only on Comedy Central can a guy do magic for stoners in a pot dispensary, then go head-to-head with child geniuses in the same half-hour,” said Willman.

Hardwick, who is producing with his Nerdist Industries, plus Alex Murray of Brillstein Entertainment and “Late Night” exec producer Robert Morton, commented: “Justin is hilarious, but quite honestly scares the crap out of me. His tricks are so good that I am convinced he is some kind of evil wizard who has been sent here to bring about the End of Times with his dark magic.”

Willman is a regular guest on “The Tonight Show,” “The Ellen Show” and Hardwick’s “@Midnight.” His live show, “Fake Believe,” is also currently touring in the U.S.

The special is slated for April 6 on Comedy Central, following Willman’s return appearance on “@Midnight With Chris Hardwick.”
