Two of the “Blue Collar” comedy guys are going to be heard loud and clear no matter whether their stand-up tours take them to a city near you in 2015.
When it debuts later this year, “Jeff and Larry’s Comedy Roundup” will include exclusive new jokes and routines from both comedians, who also serve as executive producers and will regularly appear in special programming for the channel as well as SiriusXM.
“Looking forward to working with the good folks at SiriusXM and with my buddy Jeff to help produce and program the comedy you’ve come to know and love in our comedy roundup,” said Larry the Cable Guy. “This’ll be funny, I don’t care who ya are!”
“Not only have I been a comedian for 30 years but I am a lifelong fan of comedy. I am so excited to work with SiriusXM to bring exclusive comedy content, showcases and interviews found nowhere else,” said Jeff Foxworthy. “This is going to be a whole lot of fun!”
“We are excited to work directly with Jeff and Larry to create their own SiriusXM channel that will embody the everyman humor that has made them so popular across the country and with our subscribers. Having great comedic minds like theirs producing and contributing to their own 24/7 channel is exactly the kind of unique, original, only-on-SiriusXM content that makes subscribers love turning on their radios every day,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.
FOX viewers also will be deemed worthy enough to see Foxworthy again this summer when the network brings back the game show he’s hosted, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?
The new “Jeff and Larry’s Comedy Roundup” channel joins an existing SiriusXM comedy lineup that already features Comedy Central Radio, Jamie Foxx’s The Foxxhole channel, Carlin’s Corner, Laugh USA, and Raw Dog Comedy Hits.
