NEW YORK, Dec. 22 -- Everyone knows that COMEDY CENTRAL is the only place to find the best stand-up comedy out there and the network flaunts its reputation this January! Every Sunday night, watch a different stand-up special premiere from comics Dane Cook, D.L. Hughley, Katt Williams and Kevin Hart. Also an all-new 13th season of "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents" begins this month on Friday nights at 10:00 p.m. and a second episode premieres at 10:30 p.m. All month long, viewers can vote for their favorite comedian as part of the annual "COMEDY CENTRAL Stand-Up Showdown," with the viewers' choice crowned on Sunday, January 25.

Kicking off the all-new 13th season of "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents" is a special by Kurt Metzger followed by "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents Doug Benson." Throughout the month, viewers can go online to www.comedycentral.com and vote for their favorite stand-up comedian as part of COMEDY CENTRAL's annual "Stand-Up Showdown Finals," a day-long count-down of the top 20 viewer-selected comedians. The winning comedian's stand-up special will air Sunday night on January 25 so be sure to tune in!

COMEDY CENTRAL's Sunday Night Stand-Up specials kick off January 11 at 9:00 p.m. with "Dane Cook: Rough Around The Edges." In his hilarious World Television Premiere special, Cook delivers his latest "in the round" stand-up special to 40,000 screaming fans at Madison Square Garden. In this special, never before seen on television, Cook channels his signature high energy into riffs on everything from Civil War flautists to "Save the Children" ads to the aphrodisiac qualities of a motorcycle helmet.

On Saturday, January 17 at 10:00 p.m., catch the Network Television Premiere of "D.L. Hughley: Unapologetic." The always dapper Hughley descends on D.C. to offer his take on all of your favorite hot topics: immigration, urban living, family matters and the "N" word. He's outspoken and fearless - and there are no apologies necessary.

Katt Williams rocks the mic in his laugh-out-loud special, "It's Pimpin' Pimpin'," Sunday, January 25 at 9:00 p.m. Nothing is sacred in this performance, as Williams takes on prescription drugs, terrorism, elections and even some of our past, present and future presidents. Delivering his gospel with an aggressively physical style and that signature swagger, viewers will discover why political ads sound so good at 2:00 a.m. and how Barack Obama may have come from a cave.

The competition has been brewing for a month. Viewers have voted online and on their mobile phones for their favorite stand-up comedians and now the best of the best take to the stage in COMEDY CENTRAL's "Stand-Up Showdown Finals." All day long on Sunday, January 25, COMEDY CENTRAL counts down the top 20 viewer-selected comedians, with the champion comedian crowned that night.

To close out the month, prepare for an hour of in-your-face comedy from one of the hottest comics in America! Get ready for the World Television Premiere of "Kevin Hart: I'm A Grown Little Man" January 31 at 10:00 p.m. For those who have spent their lives being turned away from roller coasters, sitting on phone books to reach the steering wheel and being picked last to play basketball, there is probably a lot to gripe about. Well, wait until Hart voices his opinions. He takes a grown-up approach to being a little man. Everything from giving his wife moral support in a fight at the club to why black people don't go whitewater rafting seems larger than life when standing at 5 foot 4 inches. Don't miss this all-new special!
