SHOWTIME's Hilarious 'LAUGH OUT LOUD' Comedy Platform To Premiere January 2007

Diverse Slate of Original, Monthly Comedy Specials To Feature Comedians Mo'Nique, Sarah Silverman, Alex Reymundo, Joe Rogan and Others

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4 -- The new SHOWTIME LAUGH OUT LOUD comedy platform features new comedy specials monthly as the network continues its long tradition of presenting some of the biggest names in the world of comedy with their own hilarious television specials. Beginning in January 2007, SHOWTIME'S LAUGH OUT LOUD will feature cutting-edge comedians as diverse as Mo'Nique, Sarah Silverman, Alex Reymundo, Joe Rogan and others, in a series of side-splitting comedy specials airing each month.

The SHOWTIME LAUGH OUT LOUD platform is a new programming initiative which continues the network's stellar track record of offering bold, uncut and unedited comedy found only on premium television. SHOWTIME has premiered popular, provocative specials from comedians such as Dave Chappelle ("For What It's Worth"), George Lopez ("Why You Crying?"), Mario Cantone ("Laugh Whore"), and Christopher Titus ("Norman Rockwell is Bleeding") that have all wowed audiences and pushed the boundaries of televised comedy.

SHOWTIME'S LAUGH OUT LOUD will mark the world television premieres of MO'NIQUE: I COULDA BEEN YOUR CELLMATE; ALEX REYMUNDO'S "HICK-SPANIC: LIVE IN ALBUQUERQUE;" THE ORIGINAL LATIN DIVAS OF COMEDY; and JOE ROGAN: LIVE, as well the U.S. television premiere of SARAH SILVERMAN: JESUS IS MAGIC, which was released theatrically to critical acclaim last year. Additional titles will be announced at a later date. Following are upcoming SHOWTIME LAUGH OUT LOUD descriptions and premiere dates:

MO'NIQUE: I COULDA BEEN YOUR CELLMATE - Jan. 6th at 9 pm PT/ET

Comic sensation Mo'nique brings her big and bold brand of humor where no other female comedienne has gone before - The Ohio Reformatory for Women - a correctional facility for female felons. Over two days, Mo'Nique spends time with the inmates, and gives them a break from their sentences with her hilarious stand-up performance.

SARAH SILVERMAN: JESUS IS MAGIC - February 2007

Often compared to Lenny Bruce and Andrew Dice Clay for her unapologetic, politically incorrect style, Sarah Silverman has been called one of comedy's most provocative and creative personalities. In the film, Silverman performs her act before a sometimes-shocked but ever-amazed live audience and tackles such taboo topics as 9/11, the Holocaust and bigotry and spins them into comic gold.

ALEX REYMUNDO'S "HICK-SPANIC: LIVE IN ALBUQUERQUE" - March 2007

"HICK-SPANIC: LIVE IN ALBUQUERQUE" is Alex Reymundo's debut one-hour comedy special. One of the "Original Latin Kings of Comedy" (which originally premiered on SHOWTIME), Reymundo delves into growing up an immigrant in a large, Mexican family in the South. Alex delivers the punch at every turn leaving the audience with only one conclusion: there is a new Latin breed of comedy in town and it's Alex Reymundo.

JOE ROGAN: LIVE - April 2007

Best known as the acerbic host of the long-running "Fear Factor" reality series, Joe Rogan has become a rising star on the stand-up circuit. He's a former Taekwondo champ and all-around bad boy who first made a name for himself on television with appearances on "The Man Show" and "NewsRadio." In this blistering performance, Rogan delivers devastating comic blows -- skewering everything from Noah's Ark to Osama bin Laden -- in a set that shows no mercy.

THE ORIGINAL LATIN DIVAS OF COMEDY - May 2007

Taking the torch from their African-American sisters, this comedy special spotlights Latina comediennes Marilyn Martinez, Monique Marvez, Sara Contreras and Sandra Valls. Filmed in San Bernardino at the historic California Theatre, the ladies have been collectively honing their respective crafts for decades and are at the top of their game. In the documentary portion of the film, we are introduced to these four women in a way that not only spotlights their on- stage skills, but also allows the audience to see the origins of their culturally inspired comedy.
