New Comedy Label Racks up End-of-Year Accolades
Apple iTunes today named Rooftop Comedy's Moshe Kasher as the iTunes Rewind 2009: Best New Comic. Rooftop Comedy, the leading interactive media producer of original comedy content, produced Kasher's debut album, "Everyone You Know is Going to Die, and Then You Are" earlier this year.
Rooftop Comedy Productions officially launched in July 2009, and the new label has quickly become the industry's largest producer of comedy albums. Parent company Rooftop Media records live stand-up performances 365 nights a year from its network of over 25 comedy clubs in North America, Europe and Australia, distributing comedy programming to its dozens of media partners that include Apple iTunes, Hulu, IGN Entertainment, NBC's "New York Non-Stop", Nokia, Verizon, Virgin America, Yahoo!, and many more.
The Apple iTunes' announcement closely follows on the heels of a series of industry honors for Rooftop Comedy albums and comedy series, including:
Laurie Kilmartin’s "Five Minutes to Myself" – produced by Rooftop Comedy – has been named a Punchline Magazine Top 10 Comedy Album of 2009.
Kyle Grooms' "The Legend of the Jersey Devil" – produced by Rooftop Comedy – has been named in Apple iTunes Top 20 Comedy Albums of 2009
"That Sucks" – a weekly television series produced for MavTV with a companion series available online and via Sucksbox.com – has been named an Apple iTunes Top 25 Video Podcast of 2009
"ROFL" – a weekly web series produced for Revision3 – has been named an Apple iTunes Top 25 Video Podcast of 2009
"We're thrilled for Moshe," said Will C. Rogers, CEO of Rooftop Media. "Our nightly, bird's eye view into the world of stand-up comedy enables us to identify, record and distribute the next big names in comedy, and industry praise for Moshe and his debut album is a great of example of this process at work."
Moshe Kasher is a Los Angeles-based comedian who has performed at comedy clubs and festivals nationwide. He was named "The Best of the Fest" at the 2009 Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival in Aspen, CO. Rooftop Comedy albums are available via Apple iTunes, Amazon.com, Napster and RooftopComedy.com.
