Remember when Jesse Thorn was just a punk college kid in Santa Cruz spamming our message board with plugs for his podcast? Well, now he's got a PR firm to do that for him! Here's what they want you to know:
Comedy and Culture podcast network MaximumFun.org
announced today that one of its original show, “Bullseye with Jesse Thorn” will record a special live show on Wed. Oct. 15 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The live show kicks-off MaximumFun.org
’s first MaxFunWeek, a celebration of MaxFun podcasts and everything awesome.
“Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
”, distributed by NPR, is a public radio show about what’s good in popular culture. Host Jesse Thorn
sifts the wheat from the chaff to bring listeners in-depth interviews with the most revered and revolutionary minds in our culture.
The joy, excitement, and enthusiasm generated by the annual MaxFunDrive inspired the first ever MaxFunWeek. In addition to the live Bullseye with Jesse Thorn, MaxFun's member-supported community will be treated to special programming, giveaways, and loads of surprises during MaxFunWeek, all without the fundraising aspect of MaxFunDrive.
“Our community of listeners is spread out across the globe. We've got a ton of cool stuff planned for the virtual world, but we wanted to kick things off with something local - and bringing Bullseye to this remarkable space in LA is perfect,” said Thorn.
Here are the facts:

AST is proud to announce a partnership with SoundCloud that enables you to listen to hundreds of tracks in our catalog for free. (Even better, the label and the artists make money every time you do so!) This is a great way to check out all the amazing comedy we've produced over the last seven years, and it's an equally great way to sample albums from comics both new and established before buying. If you have a SoundCloud account, be sure to follow AST Records; we'll be reposting playlists from all our artists on a regular basis. And while you're at it, follow all our artists too! Each one has a SoundCloud page of their very own. You can very easily share your favorite tracks and artists on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, ezboard and more by simply copying the link and posting it. So do that! Thanks, and enjoy the laughs.

AST is proud to present the debut album from The Michigan Marauder (not his nickname) Nate Fridson. Maybe "proud" isn't the right word: we had nothing to do with making Nate the comic he is today, we're just lucky he chose us to help him put out his CD. But "lucky to present" isn't a phrase, and doesn't sound right, so I went with the tried-and-true "P.T.P." Excuse the shit out of me. Point is, Nate's an amazingly good comedian that makes us and a lot of other people laugh. To see if you're one of those people, buy this album and listen to it in its entirety.
You can buy and/or hear "Best Guy So Far" in all the usual places. We recommend:

Maria Bamford. Melinda Hill. Jerry Minor. Oscar Nunez. Just watch it, okay?
Episode 2 is here.
Finally, a sequel comedy album! Doug Benson's seventh album in seven years- If you liked last year's release by Doug Benson, "Gateway Doug," you'll love "Gateway Doug 2: Forced Fun." Recorded as usual on 4/20, at Helium Comedy Club in Portland, Oregon, each track on GD2 attempts to pick up where the corresponding track on GD1 left off. Make sense? If not, smoke some weed and try not to worry about it. Get it on CD or iTunes today!
