farley 23 april 2019Airing in May in the United States, the A&E  specials will delve deep into the careers and personal lives of each of the performers to give viewers an insider’s look at what it took for each to reach the top.

Biography: Chris Farley – Anything for a Laugh examines Farley’s tragically short life, both the amped-up force of nature in front of the camera and shy, childlike figure people knew behind the scenes. The two-hour special will utilise rare personal photos and videos, and feature new interviews with John Goodman, Al Franken, Kevin Nealon, Tom Arnold, Bobby Moynihan, Joel Murray, Kevin Farley, Brian Stack, Holly Wortell and Fred Wolf.

Jeff Dunham has entertained millions of people across the globe through his record-setting comedy specials and mega-popular live performances. He has legions of loyal fans and millions of views on his YouTube channel. While he’s lived most of the past 30 years in the spotlight, the man dubbed as “America’s Favourite Comedian” has led a life that few have been privy to. The two-hour special also will feature exclusive photos and performance video from Dunham’s personal archive and interviews with Howie Mandel and Jay Leno.

Biography: Jeff Foxworthy – Stand Up Guy will bring the star together with his close friends of more than 30 years – fellow comedians Kathleen Madigan, Ron White and Larry the Cable Guy – for an informal conversation about his life and how his family, friends and faith helped him get to where he is today. The one-hour special will feature rarely seen photos and videos from Foxworthy’s personal archive and additional interviews with his manager Larry Burns and Jay Leno.
