Comedy Central says it is reviving the defunct American Comedy Awards. The awards show took place for 15 years, the last time in 2001 and televised by Comedy Central. The network said Thursday it plans to bring the awards show back to life and is teaming with prominent awards show producer Don Mischer.

It will honor a year's worth of best comedy writing and performance in film, television and over the Internet.

Comedy Central says it expects the first new American Comedy Awards to air near the end of next year, simultaneously on its network and corporate partners Spike TV and TV Land.
