SCHEDULE

Nikki Glaser (@NikkiGlaser), host of the new Comedy Central series “Not Safe with Nikki Glaser,” brings her sharp wit to her first one-hour special, “Perfect.” Glaser contemplates what it means to become an adult woman, exploring issues like the problem with marriage, the right time and method to have a baby and learning how to be yourself in a relationship. Hear Nikki talk frankly about her relationships with porn and sexual shame, and find out why she “needs to get her tank cleaned.” Filmed at Gerald W. Lynch Theater in New York City, “Nikki Glaser: Perfect” will be available on April 10 in the Comedy Central App and on cc.com. The extended and uncensored version will be available for download on CC: Stand-Up Direct, iTunes, Amazon Video, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, Verizon Flexview, Google Play and Sony Entertainment Network on April 12. The digital album will also be available on that date on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Spotify and all streaming services.

  • “Daniel Tosh: People Pleaser” (#PeoplePleaser) premieres Sunday, April 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT

Nothing is off limits for Daniel Tosh (@danieltosh) in his biting fourth special, “People Pleaser.” Politically incorrect and brutally honest, the host of Comedy Central’s “Tosh.0” takes shots at his least favorite members of society – including himself. Filmed at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles, “Daniel Tosh: People Pleaser” will be available on April 18 in the Comedy Central App and on cc.com. The extended and uncensored version will be available for download on April 19 on CC: Stand-Up Direct, iTunes, Amazon Video, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, Verizon Flexview, Google Play and Sony Entertainment Network and the DVD and digital album will also be available on that date. “People Pleaser” will be released on CD on April 22.

  • “Amy Schumer Presents Rachel Feinstein: Only Whores Wear Purple” (#OnlyWhores) premieres Saturday, April 23 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT

In her first one-hour stand-up special, “Amy Schumer Presents Rachel Feinstein: Only Whores Wear Purple,” Rachel Feinstein (@RachelFeinstein) tackles a variety of topics with her blunt humor, including her love of Christian sleepovers and the reason why dick pics are unnecessary. Filmed in front of a packed New York City audience at Gerald W. Lynch Theater, Feinstein embodies memorable characters like her terrifyingly mature middle school crush, her overbearing mother, her judgmental grandmother and porn star, Jenna Jameson. “Amy Schumer Presents Rachel Feinstein: Only Whores Wear Purple” will be available on April 24 in the Comedy Central App and on cc.com. The extended and uncensored version will be available for download on CC: Stand-Up Direct, iTunes, Amazon Video, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, Verizon Flexview, Google Play and Sony Entertainment Network on April 26. The digital album will also be available on that date on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Spotify and all streaming services.

  • “Chris Hardwick: Funcomfortable” (#Funcomfortable) premieres Saturday, April 30 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT

Chris Hardwick (@hardwick) is back for the premiere of his newest one-hour special, “Chris Hardwick: Funcomfortable.” The “@midnight” host makes things very funcomfortable for the packed house at The Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco as he explores awkward and sometimes super creepy memories from both childhood and today. With “the energy of SpongeBob dipped in cocaine water,” Hardwick delves into dealing with anxieties, finds the humor in joining the “Dead Dad Club,” and shares deeply personal anecdotes that most people would be too embarrassed to say out loud. “Chris Hardwick: Funcomfortable” will be available on May 1 in the Comedy Central App and on cc.com. The extended and uncensored version will be available for download on CC: Stand-Up Direct, iTunes, Amazon Video, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, Verizon Flexview, Google Play and Sony Entertainment Network on May 3. The digital album will also be available on that date on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Spotify and all streaming services.
