Kevin Hart and his Laugh Out Loud network are coming to SiriusXM.
Hart, SiriusXM and Lionsgate announced the agreement today, in which Hart will host a weekly show on the new Laugh Out Loud channel to debut early in 2018 on SiriusXM. Hart also will curate the radio channel.
“I am very excited to create a channel on SiriusXM that will be home to new frontiers in comedy,” said Hart. “After launching our Laugh Out Loud video network, which is off to a fast start, our goal is to make the world laugh by reaching people wherever they are. SiriusXM is the perfect partner to introduce a whole new audience to our Laugh Out Loud brand. The world will soon discover that – believe it or not – I’m even funnier on radio.”
“Kevin Hart is an unparalleled entertainer. SiriusXM is excited to have Kevin create a new channel that showcases his many talents and features other comedy voices chosen by Kevin. Our subscribers will love it,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “We are also very proud Kevin has chosen SiriusXM as his audio home and look forward to seeing what he has in store for this channel. Stay tuned.”
Laugh Out Loud, created by Hart with Lionsgate, launched this August as a multi-platform network with streaming video.
