Mel Brooks & Jimmy Kimmel Set To Guest Star On FX’s ‘The Comedians’

Billy Crystal and Josh Gad are teaming up for The Comedians on FX, set to premiere April 9, and the duo will be joined by a slew of A-list guest stars.

Mel Brooks, Jimmy Kimmel, Rob Reiner and Steven Weber are all set to appear on the half-hour comedy, Crystal and Gad tell Variety.

The Comedians, which takes a behind the scenes look at a veteran comedian (Crystal) paired with a much younger up-and-comer (Gad) for a late-night sketch comedy show, also stars Stephanie Weir, Matt Oberg and Megan Ferguson.

Crystal stars and serves as exec producer/writer on the project, which was handed a 13-episode series order early last year, alongside Larry Charles, Matt Nix and Ben Wexler. Charles directed the pilot.
