Viceland is going live in primetime next month with Vice Live, a two-hour variety special that will air four nights a week, Monday through Thursday, starting Monday, February 25 at 9 PM.
Vice Live will broadcast live out of Vice’s Brooklyn headquarters, covering the day’s hottest topics and trends, led by rising comedian/actress Marie Faustin, writer/comedian/internet provocateur Zack Fox, comedian/director/photographer Sandy Honig, and rapper/host Fat Tony.
The show itself will continually be experimenting and evolving in real-time, according to Viceland. Any given episode could feature comedy pieces, celebrity visits, short-form videos, and field pieces and check-in’s from Vice’s outposts across the globe. Social media also will be a key part of Vice Live as viewers interact with the show in real-time.
Vice Live fills the void left by Desus & Mero, which formerly aired nightly on Viceland, following the hosts’ move to Showtime.
Jeremy Hutchings (VH1 Live, 106 & Park) executive produces with director Joe Perota (Last Week Tonight, The Chris Gethard Show), alongside Viceland executive producers Nomi Ernst Leidner (SVP of development and EP of Emmy-nominated Gaycation & Woman), Jeff Sammon (Desus & Mero, Tosh.0, Jimmy Kimmel Live) and Catherine Whyte (Viceland’s EVP and head of production, MTV’s Run’s House & The Hills).
