‘Legends of Chamberlain Heights’ premieres tonight on Comedy Central and you need watch it
If there’s one thing you need to do tonight, it’s watch the premiere of “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” on Comedy Central. The show debuts after South Park at 10:30 pm/9:30 central time, so make sure you don’t miss it.
If you follow LBS on social media, you know we’ve been touting the show for a while. And we wouldn’t steer you wrong.
This show centers around three high school freshmen who are benchwarmers on the basketball team, and it’s about their adventures and mishaps. The show has an urban feel to it, and the guys who created it don’t hold back at all. Prepare to be offended and prepare to laugh. It’s about as raunchy as it gets — and therefore not for everyone — but it’s funny as all hell.
Here’s a clip promoting the premiere:

The show was created by Josiah Johnson and Quinn Hawking, who were both former basketball players at UCLA. I knew them a little at UCLA as our time at school there overlapped, but after school we connected through the sports blog scene. Johnson and Hawking have been working on this show for seven years and tonight is the culmination of years of hard work. We talked more about that in this interview published last year when the show first got picked up.
LBS has watched their ongoing journey, following as they tried to get the show picked up and as they waited until finally getting an air date from Comedy Central. We were at a few table reads for the show and again at the premiere this week. Yes, this show is created by friends of LBS, which is why we support it. No we’re not paid for this and no it’s not an ad. We would never feel comfortable promoting something that’s doodoo, and we are enthusiastically promoting it because IT’S GOOD. Their humor is great, the show is hilarious, and we are giving you the LBS seal of approval for it. Make sure you give it a watch and spread the word!
