A Chris Hardwick-produced magic show may be coming to Comedy Central

As part of its apparent new, “Fuck it, let’s just give all the Nerdist people a show and go hit up happy hour” programming model, Comedy Central has ordered a pilot for a comedy/variety/magic show produced by Nerdist Industries geek-in-chief Chris Hardwick. Called Sleight Of Mouth, the show will be hosted not by Hardwick, but by comedian/magician Justin Willman, and it will feature a different topic each week, to be explored via what Deadline calls “sketches, social experiments, guest comedians, and interactive content.” The show will be produced by Hardwick and his @midnight compatriot Alex Murray, along with Late Show With David Letterman’s Robert Morton.
