DECK THE HALLS WITH LOTS OF FUNNY! WITH "COMEDY CENTRAL'S� 13 DAYS PF CHRISTMAS" FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12 THROUGH WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 24

Christmas Day Programming Features Stand-Up Special From Jeffrey Ross, Mike Birbiglia And Gary Gulman As Well Christmas Specials From Jeff Dunham And Stephen Colbert

NEW YORK, December 1, 2008 -- 'Tis the season to be jolly and COMEDY CENTRAL is in the giving mood. Beginning December 12, the Network is offering up 13 nights of holiday-themed programming that will put everyone fa-la-la spirit.

The themed stunts include:

Friday, December 12 from 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
"I'll Be Home for Dunham"
A Jeff Dunham special wouldn't be complete without his trunk of special friends, so COMEDY CENTRAL figured what better gift than three hours of puppet-filled fun. Kick it off at 9:00 p.m. with "Jeff Dunham: Spark of Insanity," stick around at 10:30 p.m. for "Jeff Dunham: Arguing with Myself" and round it out at 11:30 p.m. with "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents: Jeff Dunham."

Saturday, December 13 from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
"Troopers & Tokers"
At 8:00 p.m., join the syrup-chugging, road-racing, drug-toking state troopers as they bust corrupt officials and fight for bragging rights in "Super Troopers." At 10:00 p.m., stick around for the Network Television Premiere of "Ali G Indahouse," as Sacha Baron Cohen takes his gangster wannabe MC to the British halls of power.

Sunday, December 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
"Friends With Benefits Double Header"
Tune in at 7:00 p.m. as Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart try to move their friendship past the BFF stage (and Reynold's fat suit) in "Just Friends." At 9:00 p.m., Adam Sandler warbles his way into Drew Barrymore's heart through cover songs and eighties hair in "The Wedding Singer."

Monday, December 15 at 9:00 p.m.
"Merrily Blonde Monday"
Elle Woods has at least one aspect of Christmas down: this girlfriend can shop. When her boyfriend dumps her for being "too blonde," she follows him to Harvard Law School and shows that she can study credit fraud as well as she can lay down Daddy's plastic. Settle into the holiday season with Elle in "Legally Blonde" at 9:00 p.m., and pick up some gift-wrapped legal advice along the way.

Tuesday, December 16 at 9:00 p.m.
"Chocolicious Christmas"
Settle in at 9:00 p.m. with host David Alan Grier for four of the best episodes of "Chocolate News," the tastiest program on TV, and get caught up before the season finale on Wednesday, December 17.

Wednesday, December 17 at 9:00 p.m.
At 9:00 p.m., join us for three back-to-back episodes featuring some of the most soulful characters in the Park, including Chef and Token, of course. At 10:30 p.m., top it all off with the season finale of "Chocolate News." This is one sweet dish viewers won't want to pass up.

Thursday, December 18 at 9:00 p.m.
"A Gift From the Future: 'Bender's Big Score'"
Tune in at 9:00 p.m. for an epic "Futurama" adventure with "Bender's Big Score." When a group of alien scammers "sprunge" their way into owning Planet Express, Fry, Leela and Bender embark on an intergalactic journey through the space-time continuum. With the fabric of the universe tearing apart and the Planet Express crew facing danger at every turn, it's business as usual in the year 3000.

Friday, December 19 at 9:00 p.m.
"Picture Yourself at Friday Night Stand-Up"
Joy to the television set, the Christmas specials are here! Tune in at 9:00 p.m. for "Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special" to see how his friends Walter and Achmed the Suicide Bomber feel about the Yule. Then at 10:00 p.m., sit back with a cup of hot cocoa as Stephen Colbert and friends present "A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!" At 11:00 p.m., embrace the darker side of December with Denis Leary in "Denis Leary's Merry F&%$#ing Christmas."

Saturday, December 20 from 5:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
"Red, Green and Blue Collar Comedy"
No one knows more about the importance of family during the holidays than the Blue Collar comics. To prep viewers for the typical dysfunction that comes with Christmastime, allow Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall and Ron White to deliver some frustrated anecdotes about their wives and kids, as COMEDY CENTRAL puts all three "Blue Collar Comedy Tour" movies under the Christmas tree.

Sunday, December 21 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
"Frighteningly Merry Sunday"
Check out these two horrifyingly funny movies to put holiday terrors in perspective. Catch the original "Scary Movie" at 7:00 p.m. as Anna Faris, Shannon Elizabeth and the Wayans brothers bumble their way through every shriek-worthy horror movie parody they can think of. Then watch the Scary crew find a couple more slasher flicks to mock in the sequel, "Scary Movie 2" at 9:00 p.m. and see what happens to stars who choose naughty over nice.

Monday, December 22 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
"To The Futurama and Beyond"
Scared of what the new year might bring? Check out COMEDY CENTRAL for a peek into the future. It starts at 7:00 p.m. with "Scary Movie 2." At 9:00 p.m., it's "Futurama's" epic feature-length adventure, "The Beast with a Billion Backs." Join Fry as he falls in love with an intergalactic alien and, as usual, turns to his Planet Express cohorts to save the day.

Tuesday, December 23 from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
"Double Your Dynamite"
This Christmas Eve-Eve is the perfect time to curl up on the couch by the fire with a llama and everyone's favorite socially challenged teenager. Well, not literally. That would likely get a person into trouble. But viewers are safe with "Napoleon Dynamite," which airs this Tuesday at 8:00 p.m., with an encore at 10:00 p.m. Sweet!

Wednesday, 12/24 from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
"Christmas Eve-il"
'Twas the night before Christmas and all through "South Park"
Kyle, Stan and Cartman still stirred after dark.
With four back to back episodes to bring Christmas cheer,
Even the Jew knew Mr. Hankey soon would be near.
From songs about dreidels to a family of s**t
And evil raping woodland critters viewers shan't soon forget!
And because they're so lucky why turn out the light?
We have Billy Bob Thornton to help end the night!
Watch just how jolly "Bad Santa" can get,
When he teams up not with an elf - but a thieving midget!
COMEDY CENTRAL hopes viewers enjoy this Christmas Eve poem �
They should remember to tune in for laughter in their homes.

On Christmas Day, COMEDY CENTRAL is serving up stand-up specials from Mike Birbiglia, Jeffrey Ross, Gary Gulman and Ralphie May along with movies such as "Bad Santa" and "Napoleon Dynamite."
