Stand Up! Records Joins the Ranks of CXA Comedy Labels


Philadelphia, PA - Stand Up! Records is the newest addition to join the ranks of CXA Comedic Labels. Stand Up! Records promises to follow “in the tradition of Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and George Carlin. We like our truth straight up and bitter.” As a member of CXA, Stand Up! Records will receive royalty payments for terrestrial radio airplay of its roster.

Stand Up!’s edgy, thought provoking comedy makes a great addition to CXA. Stand Up! Founder and President Dan Schlissel expressed his excitement about CXA in saying, “This is an idea that has been far too long in coming. Until now, comedians performance rights has been a backwater issue and I am glad that Comedy Exchange is here to help represent comedians and labels in this very real, very important initiative.”

Stand Up! Records launched in 2001 when Schlissel noticed that the comedy CDs on his then-label -ismist Recordings were selling better than indie rock. Lewis Black’s The White Album was the label’s first release and its roster has expanded to include Maria Bamford, Hannibal Buress, David Cross, Marc Maron, Patton Oswalt and Doug Stanhope, among others. Comedy Exchange Association is the new non-profit performing rights organization that provides royalties for comedy labels as well as comedians (who perform their own material), and other comedic writers, whose works are used on AM / FM and other terrestrial radio broadcasts.
