» MaxFunWeek is coming Oct 15-21, kicking off w. Bullseye live show

Sep 23, 2014 - 4:23 PM - by isoS
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:

Bullseye with Jesse Thorn LIVE http://maximumfun.org/content/bullseye-jesse-thorn-live-la
* Wednesday, October 15
* Doors 8pm, Show 9pm
* Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever
* Live interviews, music and comedy
* NPR Generation Listen sponsored Meet-and-Greet with Jesse Thorn after the show
* Tickets are on sale now at http://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/665201?utm_medium=bks

Max Fun Week http://maximumfun.org/maxfunweek

* Special content includes:

- Inside-Access to MaxFun HQ to see how your favorite shows are recorded

- And more to be announced

» Listen: tons of tracks from the AST catalog now up on SoundCloud

Sep 18, 2014 - 10:43 AM - by isoS

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.

» Buy: Nate Fridson's debut album "Best Guy So Far" out now on AST

Aug 12, 2014 - 4:06 PM - by isoS

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:

ASTrecords.com: http://astrecords.bigcartel.com/prod...-guy-so-far-cd
iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/be...ar/id897744761

Sample tracks available on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/natefridson/

» Out today: Doug Benson's "Forced Fun"

Jul 08, 2014 - 4:34 PM - by BillBrasky
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!
