Comedy Central has announced that it’s picked up eight episodes of the web series This Is Not Happening. Hosted by comedian Ari Shaffir, the show features comics telling real stories based on various themes, such as “One Crazy Night” or “Fisticuffs.” Several big names have already appeared on the show, including T.J. Miller, Doug Benson, Moshe Kasher, and Kumail Nanjiani. TINH is the first series to be picked up after development in CC:Studios, Comedy Central’s digital initiative/comedic incubator. This Is Not Happening will air this fall. Until then, here’s Ari Shaffir talking about eating pot cookies at a UFC fight.
