“We launched our Snapchat Discover channel internationally just two months ago and are thrilled with the response from fans,” said Jill Offman, SVP and head of Comedy Central International. “With a mission to become THE home of funny across every platform internationally, this fresh new content lets us give our audiences more of what they love and expect from Comedy Central around the world.”
