A-List-ComedyA-List Comedy, the comedy-centric prep service for radio, has launched with a large roster of top comedians who have appeared on Comedy Central, NBC, CBS, TMZ, CNN, MTV, and dozens more.

Focused on delivering Top Shelf Humor For a Bottom Feeding World, the newly minted A-List Comedy is a re-launch of the popular All-Star Radio.  More than 200 stations already benefit from the A-List Comedy service of topical jokes, audio bits, and song parodies. New features include prank videos, live call-ins, short-form features, and customized web content.

A Cabbie’s Guide To Conquering Fears, Achieving Dreams, And Finding A Public Restroom.”  The prank video to promote it, “Snakes In A Cab,” has been seen by over 28 million people.

“Our goal with A-List Comedy is to raise the fun factor,” noted Failla.  “We are working with the best comedic talent on the circuit and offering exciting new features that define a new standard in prep services for radio.”

Also joining the team is Affiliate Relations professional Stacy Horton as Director of Marketing and Partnerships.  In addition, Ron Stevens, who served as Head Writer since 1983, remains onboard as Creative Consultant.  A-List Comedy will have access to Stevens’ pre-existing catalog of 10,000 produced comedy features, which he collected over his phenomenal thirty-year career.
