The upcoming comedy special will feature "a lively night of dining, showbiz chit-chat, and psychological torture."

Adult Swim has made a stir attracting quality guest stars for special event programs of late, including Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, and Amy Poehler -- and that's just for Adam Scott's "The Greatest Event in Television History." Now, they'll be broadcasting their first celebrity dinner party with a late night twist. "Dinner With Friends With Brett Gelman and Friends" premieres Thursday, April 24th at midnight, and Indiewire has exclusive photos as well as the full list of cast members/dinner guests. 

Joining Gelman for the half-hour special he co-wrote with director Jason Woliner ("Eagleheart") are Dale Dickey ("Justified," "True Blood"), Gilbert Gottfried, Fred Melamed ("A Serious Man," "In a World..."), Alison Pill ("The Newsroom"), Lance Reddick ("The Wire," "Fringe"), Anthony Atamanuik ("30 Rock," "Broad City") and Alex Karpovsky ("Girls"). 

The scripted comedy special invites guests to "a lively night of dining, showbiz chit-chat, and psychological torture." Gelman, a comedian you'd know from "Eagleheart" on Adult Swim, NBC's canceled Matthew Perry series "Go On," and "The Other Guys," plays the slightly demented host of an evening filled with surprises for both the guests and the audience. After saying the show was set up a lot like a horror movie, Gelman told Indiewire, "I'm a pretty exaggerated version of myself. You don't ever know who the real me is."

Take a look at the images below for an exclusive peak at Adult Swim's special presentation.
