COMEDY NEWS: Comedy Dynamics launches July 29 on Hulu, giving access to the largest independent stand-up archive in existence

New Wave Entertainment will launch its new comedy channel, Comedy Dynamics on Hulu. The channel will be available to stream beginning July 29th on the free, ad-supported Hulu and Hulu Plus subscription service.

Comedy Dynamics offers behind-the-scenes access to the largest independent stand-up comedy database in existence and spans across the last four decades of comedy. Comedy Dynamics' credit list is a "who's who" of top comedians: Jim Gaffigan, Aziz Ansari, Katt Williams, Marc Maron, Dennis Miller, Bill Burr, Bo Burnham, Mike Birbiglia, Doug Stanhope, Kathleen Madigan, and Craig Ferguson, who states, "I love working with the people at New Wave Entertainment. They're intelligent, funny and smell like my Grandma's bathroom."

Additionally, comedy fans will have access to renowned and classic stand-up specials from the '70s, '80s, and '90s through Comedy Dynamics Classics. Dubbed the "Marquee Edition for stand- up", it curates performances from iconic comedians that shaped the comedy landscape, such as Richard Jeni and Roseanne Barr.

Since its launch, Comedy Dynamics has produced over 90 comedy specials, released more than 125 albums, and earned 2 Grammy nominations. With Comedy Dynamics' growing library, weekly viewers are able to continually catch up with their favorite comedians and discover the next big thing in the world of comedy.

"As the largest producer of high end stand-up comedy in the US, we wanted to seek out a partner that had the reach and respect we feel our artists deserve. Hulu was the obvious choice," stated Comedy Dynamics President, Brian Volk-Weiss.

Realizing the oncoming digital revolution would mean more opportunities for comedy fans to watch their favorite artists on the go; Volk-Weiss founded Comedy Dynamics in 2008. The goal was to bring the best of the comedy community's established names and up and coming talent (Moshe Kasher and Tom Segura are two examples of artists whose first specials were released by Dynamics) to all screens big and small, across America. To that point, fans of comedy have come to discover and enjoy artists in clip form as much as long form. Comedy Dynamics is launching with the greatest collection of top quality comedy clips covering any subject one could think of, from bathroom urinal art to a mom that tries to move in with her kid after he's left for college.
