Comedy Dynamics Strikes Deal With Dry Bar Comedy To Distribute Hundreds Of Titles From The Most Respected Clean Comedy Library In Existence
LOS ANGELES, CA – Comedy Dynamics has announced they’ve struck a deal with Dry Bar Comedy to distribute hundreds of titles from the clean comedy production company’s vast library. The deal includes video and audio rights to each special, and plans to distribute through Comedy Dynamics’ hybrid distribution network consisting of Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Spectrum, Tubi, Peacock, Samsung, Pluto TV, DirecTV, Youtube, Spotify, Sirius XM, Amazon Music, Apple Music and more. The first round of acquired titles are estimated for a Q4 2021 release.
Over the last several years, the value of clean comedy has enjoyed a stratospheric rise. With a clear trend that society won’t tolerate inappropriate remarks or actions, even if they’re packaged comedically, it’s becoming more and more important for comedians to find new, less offensive and more family friendly ways to make people laugh. The need for clean, safe humor isn’t solely tied to your household. Businesses and religious groups are constantly looking for fun, work-safe team building events for their staff and families to enjoy together. Comedians such as Jim Gaffigan, Preacher Lawson, Anjelah Johnson and Brian Regan have helped showcase clean comedy as a mainstream genre through successful releases on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and other major streaming platforms. This ever-growing need for clean comedy has been a huge boost to Dry Bar’s success, as the company has prided themselves on offering up clean, safe content that everyone can enjoy.
Over the last 5 years, Dry Bar Comedy has evolved into one of the fastest growing comedy networks specializing in clean, family friendly comedy. The company hosts and produces specials from their headquarters in Provo, Utah, and streams live weekly thorough VidAngel and the Dry Bar comedy app.
“Viewers can trust when they watch a stand-up comedy special produced by Dry Bar, that it will be content which can be enjoyed by everyone. That’s been our guiding principle from day one. Our ever-growing library of specials feature a wide array of performances by comedians from all walks of life. We’re excited to partner with Comedy Dynamics whose expansive reach will broaden our loyal and diverse audience and introduce Dry Bar Comedy to millions of households,” said Dry Bar Comedy president Keith Stubbs.
“Clean is the new dirty, and I’m in awe of Dry Bar having the foresight to build such a precious and high quality library,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
