COMEDY CENTRAL brakes for funny! Viewers should park themselves on the couch and tune in to the Network Television Premiere of “Hot Rod,” debuting Saturday, February 27 at 9:00 p.m.
Written by Pam Brady (“South Park”) and directed by Akiva Schaffer (“Saturday Night Live”), “Hot Rod” aims to “smack destiny in the face.” Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live”) stars as Rod Kimble, the son of a successful stuntman, who tries to follow in his father’s footsteps with terrible results. Despite ridicule and past shortfalls, he assembles a crew to help him perform a death-defying stunt on a motorbike in order to gain his ailing stepfather’s respect. The movie also stars Isla Fisher (“Wedding Crashers”).
An encore presentation of “Hot Rod” airs Sunday, February 28 at 9:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.
