The Comedy Channel was the first all-comedy channel ever made. On April 1, 1991, it merged with "Ha!" to become CTV: The Comedy Network, and later Comedy Central.

(November 15, 1989-April 1, 1991)

Nickname: "The Red C"

Logo: Over a black background, we see the words "A Presentation Of" and The Comedy Channel's logo (a red-outlined "C" with the word "COMEDY" in red on top, "THE" in the middle left of the "C" in a smaller font, and "CHANNEL" at the bottom) next to it.


  • A version without "A Presentation Of" exists.
  • On The Higgins Boys and Gruber, we see the "C" on a white background at a 90 degree angle. It tilts upright as the text inside slides in. "Presentation" fades in below in black.

Technique: None, save for the rotating and the text appearing in the variant.

Music/Sounds: None. The variant features an announcer saying "This has been a Comedy Channel presentation."

Availability: Very rare. It's seen on episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 from the Comedy Channel era, very few of which have been released on DVD. It has been usually updated with the 1991 Comedy Central logo whenever re-runs are aired on television. It also appeared on The Higgins Boys and Gruber and Your Times May Vary.
