For those in need of a little comedic therapy, this news will come as a huge delight.
Comedians Nick Offerman, Will Arnett, Eugene Mirman and more will be starring in new comedy audioshows for Audible Channels, which is free with an Audible membership and to Amazon Prime members, and also available to purchase as a standalone for $4.95 a month.
Arnett’s show, The Comedy Show Show with Will Arnett, will offer a goofy, “fully aroused” inside look into comedy shows around the country.
“Why don’t you go ahead and slip into something more comfortable while I make sure Audible brings you some of the best live themed comedy shows from all over this big, long, fully aroused… country,” Arnett said in a statement about the new show.
Also available to listeners will be the complete first season of Bedtime Stories for Cynics, presented by Nick Offerman, a series that features inappropriate children’s stories for adults. (This might be the closest we’ll ever get to achieving our longtime fantasy of Ron Swanson telling us bedtime stories.)
Hold On with Eugene Mirman will feature the comedian telling live stories alongside guests like “Weird Al” Yankovic, Jim Gaffigan and Lisa Lampanelli.
Other comedians to be featured in Audible’s new programming include Gilbert Gottfried, John Mulaney, Patton Oswalt, Rob Delaney, Tommy Chong, Maria Bamford, Jackie Kashian, Mike Birbiglia and Lisa and Kumail Nanjiani.
