New York–.

Comedy Central has actually chosen to go on with Steve Rannazzisi’s stand-up special after the comic’s admission that he lied about being in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

His special, “Breaking Dad,” was set up to air Saturday. The network said earlier in the day it was making no changes to its schedule, and representative Steve Albani said there would be no extra comment.

Rannazzisi lost a prominent endorsement handle Buffalo Wild Wings, which pulled its commercials including Rannazzisi after the admission.

The comic apologized for the incorrect story. He had stated in interviews that leaving the terrorist attacks was a vital factor in his choice to transfer to California and begin a show company career.
