Comedy Central Records Signs with CXA


COMEDY CENTRAL Records will receive royalty payments for terrestrial radio airplay of its extensive collection of Comedy by signing as a CXA label. The success of COMEDY CENTRAL Records coupled with the rights granted by CXA marks a momentous occasion in the comedy world. “We’re excited to be working with Comedy Exchange – creating a new revenue stream and ensuring that our artists receive royalties often overlooked in the world of spoken word standup,” says Jack Vaughn, Vice President in charge of COMEDY CENTRAL Records.

COMEDY CENTRAL Records releases have received an enormous amount of critical acclaim including recent Grammy® nominations for Best Comedy Album for Stephen Colbert’s “A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift Of All!” and George Lopez’ “Tall, Dark & Chicano.” COMEDY CENTRAL Records releases from “Crank Yankers,” Dane Cook, Jim Gaffigan, Lewis Black, Mitch Hedberg, Demetri Martin and Bo Burnham have all held positions on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart for multiple weeks. In 2007, Dane Cook’s “Retaliation” reached Double Platinum sales levels and “Harmful If Swallowed” hit Platinum.

COMEDY CENTRAL Records has had spectacular growth during its first five years, which coincided with the depths of the worst-ever record industry downturn, and saw its 2006 revenue more than double — a remarkable achievement that flies in the face of the overall music industry’s trend of double-digit annual decreases. COMEDY CENTRAL Records is distributed by ADA (Warner) in the US, UK and Europe; by Warner in Canada, and by Shock in Australia. For more information, please contact CXA at 267.232.1300 or
