LOS ANGELES, CA – Comedy Dynamics has announced that they’ve acquired hundreds of hours of content from the Joan Rivers Estate, with plans to release a box set, digital albums and more. Most of the content is unreleased material from the original queen of comedy.
In recent years, Comedy Dynamics have released box sets and exclusive vinyls for legends in the comedy world including Eddie Izzard, Bill Hicks, Lenny Bruce and Sam Kinison. The digital albums will eventually be available on Sirius XM, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and more, which are expected to be released in 2021.
Joan Rivers was an unparalleled legend in the entertainment industry, and adored by the public. She was more than just a comedian – she was a force of nature. An internationally recognized celebrity, Emmy-award-winning talk-show host, Grammy-award-winning performer, Tony-award-nominated actress, bestselling author, playwright, screenwriter, film director, columnist, lecturer, radio host, jewelry designer, entrepreneur, and the renowned creator of the modern day “red carpet,” Joan was also the first woman to break the glass ceiling of male-hosted late-night television. Above all her accomplishments, she was most proud of her daughter, Melissa, and her grandson, Cooper. For over 50 years, Joan pioneered her own brand of irreverent, unconventional comedy, first enduring tawdry clubs, Borscht Belt showrooms, and grimy Greenwich Village cabarets. She was never one to give up and her relentless work ethic allowed her comedy to evolve, and her audiences continued to grow. She soon headlined in Las Vegas and throughout the United States, as well as in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and Canada.
“While hundreds of hours of my mother on tape sounds great to her fans, to my therapist it sounds like another beach house. Thankfully, mom was meticulous about saving everything, and some of her best routines, collected over literally decades, are going to soon be available. For that we really can be grateful. ” said Melissa Rivers.
“Joan is the icon of icons in every sense of the word. Not only was she a comedic pioneer, she was an entrepreneur, author, actress, director and more. We’re excited to honor her career, and her life’s work for many years to come,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
