The Secret Stash is a name given by the United States cable television channel Comedy Central to its mostly-uncensored early Sunday morning (late Saturday night) programming which generally consists of R-rated films or stand-up comedy. Examples include South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (the first movie to be shown on Secret Stash on its debut in 2003), Dazed and Confused, Van Wilder, Half Baked, Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke, Clerks, Beer League, Jackass: The Movie, Scary Movie 2, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile, and stand-up comedy performances from Lewis Black, Dave Chappelle, and Christopher Titus, among others.

The mostly-uncensored material includes the retention of words that would normally be censored on cable. Nudity is left out (with the exception of Rear Nudity), as well as some drug references. However, during the airing of Rodney Carrington's stand-up special, "Rodney Carrington: Live at the Majestic", on June 23, 2007, nudity was left intact. During Carrington's song, "Show em To Me", there were numerous shots of audience members (male and female) flashing their breasts. Another instance of nudity came with the showing of How High on July 15, 2007, during the opening sequence where a topless woman was shown sleeping in Method Man's apartment.

Drawn Together, an animated program, was sometimes shown at this time, with some nudity uncensored. Other nude scenes are still censored, with the additional caption "DVD only".

The Stash usually airs Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and sometimes Mondays at 1:00 AM (Eastern Standard Time).

Due to the popularity of comedian Daniel Tosh's Tosh.0, Comedy Central has recently begun to air uncut episodes of the show.
