Rooftop Comedy Launches Record Label, 'Rooftop Comedy Productions'

July 30, 2009

Leading Provider of Original Comedy Produces & Distributes Live Comedy Albums; 3 New Albums Available Today

Rooftop Comedy (, the leading interactive media producer of comedy content and comedic branded entertainment, this week launches Rooftop Comedy Productions, a new record label devoted to the production and distribution of live comedy albums.

Rooftop Comedy records live stand-up performances 365 nights a year at their network of over 25 comedy clubs in North America, Europe and Australia, distributing selections of the content to their dozens of media partners that include Apple iTunes, Yahoo! News, Nokia, Hulu, TiVo and many more. To support select comics, Rooftop Comedy occasionally produced full-length albums using its proprietary audio recording technology. Today, Rooftop Comedy has formalized this practice and will regularly be producing and/or distributing both physical and digital audio recordings of select comics on iTunes,, and Napster.

"Over the years we have produced one-off albums for certain comedians we see as being extraordinarily talented, and we've grown to the point where we are now produce more full-length comedy albums than any other label ," said Will C. Rogers, founder and CEO of Rooftop Comedy. "Formalizing this practice and creating Rooftop Comedy Productions is the logical next step for us. Not only are we further establishing ourselves as a comedy taste-maker, we're creating more value for the comics we work with."

In addition to the 28 comedy albums currently available from Rooftop Comedy Production, the following three launch on iTunes today:

  • Jamie Lissow - "12 Drink Minimum" (College Campus Performer of the Year)
  • Laurie Kilmartin - "Five Minutes to Myself" (Appearances on Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, VH1’s Best Week Ever & The Today Show)
  • Dat Phan - "You Touch, You Buy" (Winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing Season 1)
