Showtime renews David Steinberg’s “Inside Comedy” for third season

SHARE Showtime renews David Steinberg’s “Inside Comedy” for third season

During their respective tenures at Second City, David Steinberg (mid-60s) and “Anchorman 2” co-star Steve Carell (late 80s to early 90s) were standouts on stage. Nowadays, as two of comedy’s most accomplished practitioners, they know just about everyone there is to know in the funny business.

It’s no surprise, then, that they’re able to score so many big-name guests for their Showtime venture “Inside Comedy,” which Steinberg hosts and Carell executive produces along with several others. The network just announced a third season, which begins Feb. 3, 2014. According to Variety, its ten episodes will include Jimmy Fallon, Zach Galifianakis, Jonah Hill, Dick Van Dyke, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bette Midler.
