“Netflix Is A Joke Radio on SiriusXM will be an audio extension of our award-winning, stand-up comedy on Netflix,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “We are thrilled to feature some of the greatest and funniest performers in the world with highlights from Netflix shows as well as original programming that further celebrates the art of comedy, and we are excited to do this in partnership with SiriusXM.”

“SiriusXM is delighted to become the audio home for Netflix’s blockbuster comedy programming,” said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer, SiriusXM. “Netflix has established itself as the unrivaled video source for stand-up, attracting the biggest names in the industry as well as break-out newcomers, and we’re eager to deliver SiriusXM subscribers access to their star-studded library, new specials, and original live shows.”

“I’ve seen the power of Netflix on their service for my own special, Stay Hungry, and now with their own SiriusXM channel, this opens up a whole new audience and it’s a great way to digest comedy on the run,” said comedian Sebastian Maniscalco.

In addition to featuring top comedy from Netflix’s massive collection of established and up-and-coming artists, segments from future stand-up specials will debut on Netflix Is A Joke Radio, granting SiriusXM subscribers the chance to hear new material from A-list comics before anyone else. The channel also broadcasts clips of Netflix’s comedy talk shows and other comedic content from the service.

The exclusive channel plans to introduce an original daily show, featuring celebrity guests and comedians discussing pop culture and hot topics of the day. The program is recorded from SiriusXM’s new studios in Los Angeles.

The new channel with Netflix launches as SiriusXM continues to grow its comedy programming, which already includes Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Radio (Ch. 96), for which Hart hosts a regular show, as well as a regular series with Ricky Gervais. In addition to original programs hosted by Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworthy, Jim Norton & Sam Roberts, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Nikki Glaser, to name a few, SiriusXM also produces audio documentaries on groundbreaking comedians such as Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, George Carlin, and Garry Shandling.
