Audible Comedy Series SOUNDS LIKE AMERICA with Rachel Dratch, Kate Berlant, Reggie Watts & More Set For Release 12/11
Sounds Like America, one of the latest comedy series from Audible, is poised for a wide release on December 11, 2017, when it will begin a series rollout wherever podcasts can be heard. As the show is released wide on podcast apps, the first two seasons remain available to download, stream, and listen in full on Audible with membership or with a 30-day free trial.
Sounds Like America is a wild sound collage featuring vignettes, stories, and jokes about various subjects and cities in the United States as seen by the people who know it best, and tell it like it really is: comedians. Hosted by a rotating cast of seasoned comics, each episode covers a different American pastime, city, characteristic, event, or zeitgeist. Each episode opens with a host monologue, followed by a unique sound collage that features stand-up comedy, funny interview excerpts, and local music. The result is a hilarious, sometimes touching tribute to our complicated country. Topics, themes, and locations dissected and inspected on the show include The South, Parenting, Drugs, Religion, and NYC. Shows are helmed by comedians like Reggie Watts, Andy Richter, Aisha Tyler, Michelle Buteau, Roy Wood Jr., Jackie Kashian, Rob Delaney and more!
Audible invented and commercialized the first digital audio player in 1997, and has since been at the forefront of the explosively growing audiobook download segment. In 2016, Audible members downloaded an average of almost 17 books over the course of the year. More than half of new Audible members are first-time audiobook buyers.
In addition to a wide selection of comedic audiobooks, Audible members can download and enjoy several new and exclusive comedy shows, including Dr. Katz: The Audio Files, Lewis Black's The Rant is Due, The Guest List with Ron Funches, and Bedtime Stories for Cynics hosted by Nick Offerman.
