|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
Stand-up comedy is a form of comedy where one comedian, or in sometimes an act made up of multiple people, tells jokes and other forms of comedy in front of an audience. Famous stand-up comics have included George Carlin, Jerry Seinfeld and Lewis Black.
Stand-up comedy has been shown on television, most popularly on HBO and Comedy Central. When shown on television, it will either be with one comedian in their own special, or a TV series which features more than one act, one after another.
