TOO MUCH STAND-UP FOR ONE MONTH!

2014 STAND-UP MONTH ON COMEDY CENTRAL(R) IS SIX WEEKS OF LAUGHS

NEW YORK, March 10, 2014 - Comedy Central's Stand-Up Month is back, and this year it's way too big for just one month. Beginning March 29, Comedy Central will feature some of the most exciting names in stand-up as the network debuts six new one-hour specials from Hannibal Buress, Patton Oswalt, Dave Attell, Tracy Morgan, Jim Gaffigan and David Spade, an all-new, uncensored stand-up series from Attell and the network television premiere of "The Improv: 50 Years Behind the Brick Wall." All Stand-Up Month specials will be distributed via CC: Stand-Up Direct, which delivers unlimited streams and downloads of uncut, uncensored stand-up specials, providing fans with unprecedented ease of access to a wide range of stand-up content at an affordable price.

STAND-UP SPECIALS

"Hannibal Buress Live From Chicago" premieres Saturday, March 29 at Midnight

Hannibal Buress is back on Comedy Central with his brand-new one-hour stand-up special, "Hannibal Buress Live From Chicago." Taped at The Vic Theatre in his hometown of Chicago, IL, Buress' latest offering features more of the signature dry wit and cool delivery we've come to love. This time around, the Comedy Central and "Broad City" favorite rolls out new material about his own second line parade in New Orleans, fist fights in London, and many memorable late nights on the road. An extended and uncensored edition of the special will be available for download on April 1 on various platforms. Amazon.com will exclusively offer the extended and uncensored edition of the special on DVD.

"Patton Oswalt: Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time" premieres Sunday, April 6 at 10:00 p.m.

Patton Oswalt's brand-new original stand-up special covers the trials and tribulations of frozen food, a failed outing with a prostitute, fatherhood and beyond. All of that combined with a packed house at San Diego's Spreckels Theater during Comic-Con make this an unforgettable special that is surely Oswalt at his best. An extended and uncensored edition of the special will be available on April 8 as a CD/DVD combo and for download on various platforms.

"Dave Attell: Road Work" premieres Saturday, April 12 at Midnight

Be sure to catch "Dave Attell: Road Work," the latest one-hour special from veteran New York City comic Dave Attell. This unique special cuts together multiple performances from Attell's past tour. From New Orleans to Philadelphia to Minneapolis and more, "Road Work" feels more like a concert film than a traditional stand-up special. Of course, it wouldn't be a proper Attell show without his expert crowd work and clever R-rated material in what he calls "a filthy, dirty mess of a show." An extended and uncensored edition of the special will be available for download on April 15 on various platforms.

"Tracy Morgan: Bona Fide" premieres Sunday, April 20 at 10:00 p.m.

After starring for seven seasons on NBC's Emmy(R)- and Golden Globe Award(R)-winning "30 Rock," the legendary Tracy Morgan returns to his roots in the world premiere of his new one-hour stand-up special, "Tracy Morgan: Bona Fide." Morgan performs in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY at the iconic Brooklyn Academy of Music's Harvey Theater, where he delivers a hilarious, personal and compelling hour that includes everything from growing up in the projects and surviving a dysfunctional family Thanksgiving to the time Prince threw him out of his house following an all-night party. Morgan weaves personal stories and topical anecdotes to illustrate how one of the world's favorite comedians made it from Bed-Stuy to Hollywood. An extended and uncensored edition of the special will be available on DVD and for download on April 22.

"Jim Gaffigan: Obsessed" premieres Sunday, April 27 at 10:00 p.m.

Jim Gaffigan bursts back onto the scene with this eagerly anticipated fourth comedy special. Dubbed the "King of Clean Comedy" by The Wall Street Journal, Jim's obsession with all things food comes to fruition in "Jim Gaffigan: Obsessed," as he tackles a cornucopia of new food topics from fruit to seafood to donuts. Never without wry social commentary, Gaffigan digs deep into other obsessions from underwear to weddings to not wanting to smell. Get ready for non-stop laughs at Gaffigan's twisted-yet-enlightened observations on the seemingly mundane topics that have made him a fixture in the comedy world for audiences of all ages. An extended and uncensored edition of the special will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, and for download on various platforms on April 29. The "Jim Gaffigan: Obsessed" extended and uncensored CD and digital album also go on sale on April 29.

"The Improv: 50 Years Behind the Brick Wall" premieres Friday, May 2 at Midnight

"The Improv: 50 Years Behind the Brick Wall" brings together the biggest names in comedy to tell the inside story of America's first comedy club. Tune in to see never-before-seen clips and interviews from Judd Apatow, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, the Wayans brothers and many more comedy legends.

"David Spade: My Fake Problems" premieres Sunday, May 4 at 10:00 p.m.

Comedic super-star David Spade returns to the stage in his first hour-long stand-up special in over ten years. Taped at Hollywood's The Fonda Theatre, "David Spade: My Fake Problems" is produced by Spade along with Marc Gurvitz and John Irwin. With his trademark snarky delivery, Spade covers many exotic topics like doing gymnastics to the tune of "Macho Man," and that time Chris Farley bought him 10 lap dances in a row. An extended and uncensored edition of the special will be available to download on May 6 on various platforms.
