Rounding out the month of exciting stand-up programming are one-hour specials from fan favorites including Jeff Dunham, Daniel Tosh, Aziz Ansari, Katt Williams and Chris Rock, as well as the South Beach Comedy Festival, returning to Miami Beach Wednesday, April 17 to Sunday, April 21.

Known to many as a contributor on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and as an eccentric crazed fan on HBO's "Flight of the Conchords," Kristen Schaal kicks off the month by unleashing her hysterical comedic wit upon San Francisco in her first COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour special. Follow Schaal on Twitter at @kristenschaaled.

Not to be outdone, Gabriel Iglesias is back with an all-new special that's too fluffy for one night, so it has to be shown over two. Taped in beautiful Hawaii, "Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy" airs two Sundays in a row, adding up to a super-sized special in which Fluffy takes us into his crazy world as the biggest international comedy sensation around. Follow Iglesias on Twitter at @fluffyguy.

South Beach Comedy Festival returns to Miami Beach Wednesday, April 17 to Sunday, April 21 for another stellar comedy showcase featuring some of the world's favorite entertainers.

Later in the month, king of cringe Jim Norton is back with an all-new stand-up special that leaves nothing to the imagination.

Follow Norton on Twitter at @JimNorton.

Celebrated stand-up comedian, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" correspondent, and LA family man Al Madrigal debuts his first COMEDY CENTRAL one-hour stand-up special, "Why Is The Rabbit Crying?" Madrigal brings his unstoppable storytelling style to the special, telling true tales of Coach Frankie, the Cholo soccer dad; "Liam Neeson," the mushroom-addled cleaning lady; and Jesus the day laborer, closing out Stand-Up Month in spectacular fashion.
