Comedy Central Presents is the network's main half-hour program which highlights either one or a series of stand-up comedians each episode. In 2011, the series ended and Comedy Central replaced it with the revamped The Half Hour, now called Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents, 30-minute stand-up specials.



Starting in 2008, Comedy Central started releasing "Best of" compilation DVDs, with uncensored audio. Previously, some of these episodes have appeared on DVDs of comedians' stand-up specials, only they remained censored.
