NEW YORK, February 25, 2008 -- During the inaugural season viewers got a chance to see Lil' Bush and Tony Blair become cheerleaders, the Lil' Gang unleash weapons of mass destruction and Lil' Bush make a statement with his Aquaman underpants while facing off against Lil' Kim Jong Il. The Gang also went on a panty raid against an Al Qaeda training camp and attempted to speed up global warming. The first season premiered June 13, 2007 and was the most watched premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL since 2004. Across the run of the first season "Lil' Bush" was the number one show in its timeslot (Wednesdays, 10:30-11:00 p.m.) among Men 18-24. Released by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, "Lil� Bush: Resident of The United States" - Season One (Uncensored) DVD arrives in stores nationwide on Tuesday, March 11 and also available at http://shop.comedycentral.com.

COMEDY CENTRAL's doing a heckuva job on the President. Whether he's squaring off against schoolyard rivals like Lil' Kim Jong Il, taking a field trip to Iraq, or torturing the lunch-ladies into serving all-American hot dogs everyday, Lil' Bush and the gang are just playing politics. We�ll watch with wonder as they grow up to be real deciders. If you're looking for laughs -- mission accomplished!

Iggy Pop, best known for his band Iggy & the Stooges, has joined the cast as the voice of Lil' Bush's confidant, "Lil' Rummy." Rummy is a classic schoolyard bully with a few charming psychopathic quirks. Iggy is joined in later episodes by guest voices from the music world including Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, Frank Black from the Pixies, Jeff Tweedy from Wilco and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as themselves.
