The Comedy Wire

By Pat Reeder & Laura Ainsworth

"We wade through all the garbage and mock it, so you won't have to!"

CLICK LOGO FOR THE
JOKES  OF THE DAY!

For years, Pat Reeder & Laura Ainsworth's Comedy Wire was the secret weapon of top-rated, award-winning radio DJs and talk show hosts worldwide!


But as of March 31, 2012, the Comedy Wire ceased publication because Pat & Laura were too busy writing for Cumulus Media's nationally-syndicated shows.  Since then, Pat & Laura have become Comedy Wire Inc., offering a range of creative services in all media, including:


*   RADIO:  Cumulus' "The Huckabee Report," radio's most popular short feature, heard three times daily on over 600 stations nationwide, and All Star Radio's Daily Comedy Exclusive, heard on hundreds of stations worldwide...


*  MUSIC:  Through our subsidiary, Eclectus Records, production of Laura's serious recordings and live shows, featuring her stunning voice and critically-acclaimed retro jazz style.  "You can keep all those pop divas...The only one for me is Laura Ainsworth... A wonderful modern interpreter of the Great American Songbook as well as thoroughly modern styles." -- Eric Harabadian, Jazz Inside  

You can find Laura and her music at her homepage LauraAinsworth.com, Facebook, Twitter, ReverbNation,
CDBaby.com, iTunes and Amazon.com.


*  PRINT:  The humorous "reverse self-help book," Nine Hallmarks of Highly Incompetent Losers, now available through Amazon in a newly updated Kindle and print edition.  And currently in the works, an updated Kindle edition of Pat's cult classic, Hollywood Hi-Fi (www.hollywoodhifi.net)...



HOWEVER...If you came here seeking a free trial of daily radio comedy material, we suggest you contact our friends Ron Stevens & Joy Grdnic for a free trial of their DCE radio prep service!  Just email Ron Stevens at ronstevens@allstarradio.com  Tell him Pat & Laura sent you!  He'll cut you a great deal!

LAURA'S MUSIC CORNER!


Click here to download Laura Ainsworth's "Keep It
            To Yourself" from CDBaby.com!
Laura Ainsworth's terrific debut CD Keep It To Yourself and the critically-acclaimed follow-up Necessary Evil are available at CDBaby.com, iTunes and Amazon.com.  Produced and arranged by 2011 Dallas Jazz Musician of the Year, Brian Piper, both feature great songs from the 1920s to today, with fresh twists on standards and obscure gems.  Multiple tracks are being played on stations as far away as France, Australia and Buenos Aires, landing the album on JazzWeek's top radio airplay chart.

Music critics are falling in love with
Laura's gorgeous, nearly-three-octave voice, supported by some of the best jazz musicians in the Southwest!  Reviewers have called her voice "sublime," "sultry," "swoon-inducing," "stunning," "magic," "impossibly-old fashioned," "transcendent," "a jewel of a voice" and "the very portrait of West Coast cool."  Her albums have earned comparisons to the classic Capitol and Verve LPs of the '50s.

T
he lead CD review of the "Vocalists" issue of Jazz Inside magazine raved that you can keep all those pop divas like Beyonce, Mariah and Lady Gaga, "the only one for me is Laura Ainsworth...Ainsworth has beauty, brains, sophistication and comic timing that make her the total performance package...A wonderful modern interpreter of the Great American Songbook, as well as thoroughly modern styles." 
 
Fellow musicians have also taken notice.  Billboard #1 New Age artist Wouter Kellerman declared Necessary Evil "amazing," "a "must-have" and said, "
I strongly believe this is a timeless album, a treat and an absolute pleasure to listen to."  Recording artist and renowned classical pianist Michael Lewin of the Boston Conservatory declared Laura's rendition of Cole Porter's "Love For Sale" from Keep It To Yourself to be "the best EVER," adding, "I was brought up on Ella, but this is better." 

A double nominee for the Artist Music Guild Heritage Award for Female Vocalist of the Year and Mainstream Artist of the Year, Laura performed at the nationally televised awards show special alongside such stars as Gloria Gaynor, Billy Gilman, Shirley Caesar, Dee Dee Sharp and Chubby Checker.

In January 2015, Laura enjoyed her first tour of India and Dubai.  While there, she shot a video of the title track of "Necessary Evil" that was accepted by VH1 and other top music video outlets.   She also recorded with Grammy-winning world music artist and composer/producer Ricky Kej, and he created a dance/club remix of "Necessary Evil" that also has its own video.  "Necessary Evil" was also picked up for a North American rerelease by American Showplace Music, label of Grammy-winning producer Jack Kreisberg (legendary former manager of the Blue Note jazz club and founder of Half Note Records), who will be producing Laura's third album in his New Jersey studio, where Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and many other major stars record.
