Amazon Acquires Rooftop Comedy via Audible

(via The Hollywood Reporter)

The company you always hear so much about while listening to your favorite podcasts, Audible, will now be more than for just hearing audio versions of books. 

Audible has just brought Rooftop Comedy into their fold, which really means that Rooftop is now part of Amazon’s fold. Other than partnering Audible, Rooftop doesn’t seem like they’ll be changing course much and will continue in their current direction of taping and distributing live comedy like the Holy F*ck album, but, presumably, with a little more corporate weight behind them.

We’re curious to see if the number of people listening to comedy albums off of Rooftop’s label will get a spike from this.
