NEW YORK, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- From filling clubs and concert venues across the nation to being seen weekly as a regular guest on "Chelsea Lately," Jo Koy returns to COMEDY CENTRAL with an all-new original one-hour stand-up special.  The world premiere of "Jo Koy: Lights Out" debuts Sunday, April 1 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Koy is back with a new special filled with hilarious stories about his life and family.  Filmed at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA, Koy explains why he feels sleep is a near-death experience, why his son will always associate the image of his naked father with earthquakes and offers a helpful tip for escaping the agony of parenthood.  Newcomers will be engaged by Koy's animated style and fans will find plenty of laughs from the comedian they love.

"Jo Koy: Light's Out" extended and uncensored DVD will be released on April 3 by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment with 15 minutes of material not included in the broadcast.  The bonus features include "DJ Josephine," which follows Koy home to Las Vegas where he visits his mother's radio show and the site of his very first stand-up performance; and "Jo Koy: All Access" where viewers get an intimate backstage pass to the show with Koy and his friends.  COMEDY CENTRAL Records will release the "Jo Koy: Lights Out" uncensored and extended digital album on April 3.

"Jo Koy: Lights Out" DVD will be available in HD exclusively On Xbox LIVE, iTunes, Sony PlayStation Network, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, and in SD On Samsung Media Hub.  Pre-order is available on iTunes now.

Leading up to the on-air premiere, COMEDY CENTRAL Stand-Up will feature preview clips from the special, exclusive videos from the DVD release and a Facebook tab highlighting Koy and comedians he follows on Twitter.
