Spotify partners with YouTube’s Official Comedy for stand-up app

Spotify has launched a new app with YouTube channel Official Comedy, bringing the best stand-up acts together in one library on its platform.

The app includes routines like Jerry Seinfeld's ‘I'm Telling You For The Last Time’ and Aziz Ansari's ‘Dangerously Delicious,’ as well as performances from the likes of Louis C.K., Steve Martin, Sarah Silverman, Bill Cosby and Kevin Hart, among others.

Ken Parks, Spotify's chief content officer, said: “The Official Comedy app on Spotify gives our users access to a customised comedy experience that is just as extensive as our music experience."

The app also curates playlist on a theme-by-theme basis. Examples so far include ‘Who Doesn't Love a Good Sex Scandal?’, ‘We've All Got Royal Baby Fever!’, and ‘Why Is This Freaking Dog Humping My Leg?’

The Official Comedy app was built by Bedrocket and SMPapps.
