Comedians recount their worst on-stage experiences on newly launched podcast
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveXLive Media, Inc. (LIVX) ("LiveXLive"), a global digital media company focused on live entertainment, today announced the launch of an original podcast series, "Comedy Bombcast." Hosted by Kevin Klein, "Comedy Bombcast" confirms the indisputable truth of the comedy-world saying that "if you're not bombing, you're not trying," with first-hand accounts of failure as told by well-known comedians who try.
"I've spent countless hours talking to comedians over the years, both on and off mic," Klein said. "The stories that have always fascinated me the most were the ones about jokes falling flat, and the journey of trying to win the crowd back," Klein said. "Also, this year after losing a good friend, and great comedian, Brody Stevens, I thought celebrating comedy bombs would be a fitting tribute to a guy who 'bombed' better than anyone, even when he was crushing."
Available on-demand at www.livexlive.com, the first episodes of "Comedy Bombcast" feature Hal Sparks ("First of all, who do you think you are to say you bombed 'early in your career?'"), Brad Williams ("Worse than silence, you hit a punch line and you hear people talking") and Sam Tripoli ("When it comes to bombing, I am a blackbelt, and sometimes even steer into the bomb on purpose.")
A next generation live social music platform connecting bands, brands, and fans, LiveXLive has livestreaming rights for more than 1500 music festivals and events through exclusive, multi-year partnership agreements with the world's most prominent music content providers. The company has livestreamed premier music festivals from all over the globe, producing more than 291 hours of live content featuring 233 artists since April 2019, and has created more than 300 short-form original programming segments comprised of live performances, podcasts, artist interviews, lifestyle segments, and show pilots.
