SiriusXM and Netflix announced the first original program to broadcast exclusively on the newly launched Netflix Is A Joke Radio (Ch. 93). Popular comedians Tom Papa and Fortune Feimster will co-host What A Joke with Papa and Fortune weekdays from 10am to noon ET.
What A Joke with Papa and Fortune will be a hilarious show in which the co-hosts hang out with fellow comedians, interview celebrities and cover everything from their personal lives and the world of comedy to the day’s trending topics. They’ll also play clips from Netflix’s exclusive and unparalleled library of top comedy specials.
“I just wanted an excuse to spend more time with Fortune. That it’s on Netflix Is A Joke Radio on SiriusXM is really just a bonus,” said Papa.
“I’m so excited for this new venture with Tom and Netflix on SiriusXM,” added Feimster. “I’ve always been told I have a face for radio and I never knew what that meant until now.”
