Comedy Central taps Blake Griffin to host ‘31 Days of Holiday Survival’


The NBA star will flex his comedy muscles for the month-long holiday programming event

If you’re in need of a pick-me-up to help get you across that yuletide finish line this holiday season, Blake Griffin (yes, that Blake Griffin) is here to help you out.

As announced on Tuesday (November 26), Comedy Central will be bringing back it’s month-long programming designed to help you stay sane during the coming weeks, in the form of 31 Days of Holiday Survival, as the NBA All-Star — who has flashed his own comedy chops in a few different ways in 2019 — will star in sketches that will fill the void between the TV shows and movies that will fill the hours leading up to New Year’s Day, as well as additional content that will find it’s home online.

Whether or not Griffin makes an appearance with a keytar in hand, the holly jolly binging will include a wide slate of movies and TV shows that will feed both your holiday spirit and your general, err, not holiday spirit before wrapping up alongside your New Year’s hangover on January 1 with a marathon of Chappelle’s Show to open 2020.
