Comedy Central Buys Kenny Vs. Spenny

Posted on October 1, 2007 by

Comedy Central has acquired the rights for Canadian reality/comedy series ‘Kenny vs. Spenny,’ with South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone helping to produce new episodes.

Kenny vs. Spenny will premiere on the cable channel Nov. 14.

The network has licensed 10 existing episodes, and Parker and Stone will help produce 10 additional episodes.

Kenny vs. Spenny features best friends Kenneth Hotz and Spencer Rice going head-to-head in a series of silly competitions. According to Comedy Central, “the winner achieves short-term glory and bragging rights, while the loser is forced to perform a humiliating stunt of the winner’s choosing.”

Previous challenges have included: Who Can Stay Naked the Longest?, Who Can Sell More Bibles?, Who Can Last the Longest Without Arms? and Who Do Gay Guys Like More?

Stone and Parker say it was the episode about Who Can Stay Awake the Longest that caught their attention, as they were pulling all-nighters to finish the movie Team America: World Police at the time.

“When we first saw Kenny vs. Spenny, we thought it was really funny. And the fact that they are Canadian somehow makes it even funnier,” Stone and Parker said in a press release. “Truthfully, the show isn’t just funny, it’s the most accurate examination of male friendships that we’ve ever seen.”
