The new channel will be an all-access pass to content from the top brand and leading name in stand-up comedy. For the first time, Comedy Central is creating a 24/7 audio channel with SiriusXM consisting of new stand-up and exclusive performances from its library. “Comedy Central Radio” will offer hundreds of hours of stand-up comedy performances from Comedy Central’s library including stand-up series such as Comedy Central Presents and Premium Blend, and select performances from Comedy Central Roasts and its roster of one-hour stand-up specials. In addition, Comedy Central Radio will feature new performances, behind-the-scenes and backstage broadcasts from Comedy Central events, broadcasts from Comedy Central Certified clubs, and exclusive shows from comedians taking listener calls and being “guest DJ” on the channel, often tied in with launches and specials on Comedy Central.
Comedy Central Radio will launch in the Spring and joins SiriusXM’s comedy channels including Laugh USA, Blue Collar Radio, Jamie Foxx’s The Foxxhole, George Carlin’s Carlin’s Corner, Upright Citizens Brigade’s UCB Radio, Raw Dog Comedy and more.
