NEW YORK, May 5 -- This is one smokin' show that's B.Y.O.B. (bring your own blanket). "The Daily Show & Friends" is this year's presentation of "COMEDY CENTRAL Park" which will take place on Wednesday, July 21 at 8:00 p.m. The event will be hosted by Lewis Black and feature stand-up performances by "Daily Show" correspondents Wyatt Cenac and John Oliver, series alum Rob Riggle, executive producer Rory Albanese and supervising producer Adam Lowitt.

Past performers include Dave Attell, Stephen Lynch, Mike Birbiglia, Gabriel Iglesias and Pablo Francisco.

Outback Steakhouse is the sponsor of "COMEDY CENTRAL Park."

He is one of few performers to sell out multiple, renowned theatres, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Previously, he spent three seasons as a writer and contributed voice-over work for FOX's "King of the Hill" and also co-starred with Kanye West in a pilot for HBO. In 2008, he starred in the film, "Medicine for Melancholy" which was nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards.

Adam Lowitt is an Emmy� Award-winning supervising producer at "The Daily Show." He has toured extensively with comedians such as Riggle, Cenac, Larry Wilmore and Demetri Martin.

John Oliver is a correspondent and writer on "The Daily Show" and joined in 2006. Oliver has done everything from interviewing UN Ambassadors to breaking his nose fighting for the Confederate Army. As a writer, he has won an Emmy� for his work on "The Daily Show" and has received Writers Guild Awards nominations. He won the Breakout Award at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in 2007 and last year guest starred in four episodes of NBC's "Community."

Rob Riggle is currently shooting "Larry Crowne" opposite Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. He recurs on CBS's "Gary Unmarried" and was a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" and a correspondent on "The Daily Show." Riggle played Officer Franklin in Warner Bros' "The Hangover" and has also appeared in "Talladega Nights" and "Step Brothers." This summer he can be seen in "Killers," "Going the Distance" and "The Other Guys."

"COMEDY CENTRAL Park" kicked off its inaugural year with host Dave Attell and featured comedians Ted Alexandro, Joe DeRosa, Kurt Metzger, John Mulaney and Amy Schumer. In 2008, Stephen Lynch, Mike Birbiglia and Julian McCullough performed. Last year, Gabriel Iglesias and Pablo Francisco rocked the mic.

COMEDY CENTRAL's pro-social initiative, AddressTheMess also returns again this year to participate in this free stand up event by encouraging participants to reduce dependence on the ubiquitous plastic bag. The first 3,000 attendees to the show will receive a complimentary, reusable shopping bag. The initiative focuses on issues such as e-ware recycling, proper waste disposal and fossil fuel emissions, to bring more attention to this global crisis.
