Ben No kidding, SoundCloud just got funnier

The jokes are on us: this is a big week for comedy on SoundCloud.

First, we’re pleased to announce that we’re launching a slate of five new comedy Pro Partners. Our new Pro Partners follow in the footsteps of The Nerdist and Kevin Smith’s SModCO, who’ve been with us since we launched Pro at South By Southwest.

Who’s in the new crew? There’s Earwolf, a comedy network featuring top celebrity guests from the stand-up world and beyond. The Bugle, starring John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman, the transatlantic region’s leading bi-continental satirical double-act. The comedian-owned All Things Comedy Network. Laughspin, a weekly comedy news and feature wrap-up, straight out of New Jersey. And Splitsider, which gathers up some of the best comedy podcasts out there for your listening pleasure.

That’s just the beginning of the hilarity: we’re also excited to say that Comedy Central has now joined us as a new partner on SoundCloud. Hear what they’re serving up.

And if you prefer to tell your own jokes, we have good news for you, too. We’re all about making it possible for anyone to create and share audio, which is why we have one more collaboration to tell you about: we’re also partnering with the BBC for BBC Radio’s New Comedy Award, a nationwide search to find the best new stand-up talent in the UK. Upload your entry and make the world LOL.

    Earwolf’s Comedy Bang Bang is some of the funniest stuff you will ever hear. Free entertainment every week and funnier than anything on television.

    It might take you a few listens to get a feel for what happens and appreciate it, but don’t be afraid to reach back into the archives and listen to several. Some of the older ones are the best but there’s new great stuff every week.
