A New Kind of Comedy
It’s stand-up comedy with no coarse language and no bawdy jokes. In other words, it’s stand-up comedy the whole family can watch.
Dry Bar Comedy’s popularity has surprised nearly everyone involved.
“This is a huge market that’s unserved,” VidAngel co-founder Jeffrey Harmon told Crosswalk.
Full shows can be watched on VidAngel’s subscription platform (VidAngel.com), although clips are available on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
More than 150 comedians have been recorded performing their routine in front of a live audience. For some, it’s been career-changing.
“We've had comedians that have actually shifted their entire career now where they're saying, ‘I didn't know I could actually make a market for myself and in a clean world,’” Harmon said. “We've had at least a dozen say their show [for Dry Bar Comedy] was the single best show of their career.”
But Harmon is quick to add: It’s not just clean. It’s funny. It’s common for a single Facebook clip to garner millions of views, thousands of shares and hundreds of comments.
“It’s so funny, you don’t even realize it’s clean,” he said.
