With so many radio services around, why choose the Comedy Wire?
Unlike other prep services that promise a lot of material ("25 pages!" "50 pages!"), then bury you in reams of wire copy you can find anywhere, plus hit-or-miss gags from freelancers or Internet sources that your competitors have already mined, every word of the Comedy Wire is written by the award-winning team of Pat Reeder & Laura Ainsworth.
Pat and Laura work all night, searching the wondrous Worldwide Web for the stories your listeners will be buzzing about today. They condense all the pertinent facts into short, ready-to-air capsule form to cut down your prep time, then add multiple one-liners from a variety of viewpoints; jokes that are smart, funny, original, and informed by years of radio and comedy stage experience and a ridiculously broad knowledge of news, history and pop culture. Clients are more likely to compare it to Jay Leno, Dennis Miller or "The Daily Show" than to other radio services. It all goes out around 4:30 a.m. CST, "hot off the presses," with incredibly timely material that often scoops the morning papers.
The rates are very
- your show can have its own exclusive newws research/comedy writing
for as little as $1 a day in the smallest markets! A
special discount is available for advance payment. You can even
put it on a credit card or pay via PayPal! And because it's
station-exclusive, you can use it on every station your company
in that market for one low price. Or ask about a group owner rate
for stations in multiple markets.
Many of our clients
do a special "weird news" daily segment using lines from the Comedy
Wire. It's one of their most popular bits with listeners, making
it easy to sell a sponsorship and generate enough ad revenue in just
one day to pay for the cost of an entire month of the service.
That's why, for over 16 years, The Comedy Wire has been the gold standard of scripted show prep services, used by top-rated, major-market, hall-of-fame talents who have won national awards as the best in their formats!

Here's what Comedy Wire readers have to say...
"Dear Pat & Laura: Just a short note to tell you how consistently falling-down funny your Comedy Wire is. Highlight of many a day is one of your choice sardonic or tongue-in-cheek observations. Truly original and truly clever. In a world so full of blah, blah, blah, politically-correct blah blah blah, you sure sound good.We love this product. WE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!"

know how we could do mornings without the Comedy Wire.
Many of our listeners say the little kicker
stories and news tidbits are their favorite part of the morning. As disc jockeys, its difficult for us to
read every news source available, so it's nice to have it all neatly
packaged in one service."

with truly usable
topical jokes. They must work all night

and fending off
process servers before
dawn usually gets in the way of adequate show prep for us, but thanks
Comedy Wire, even we sound
intelligent, informed and witty!"

"Sharp, Edgy, Topical...The Comedy Wire is the smart, slightly deranged kid in the back of the room...Pat and Laura make for an awesome support staff. I wake up at noon, eat doughnuts, and torment my dog, assured that Pat and Laura have written great jokes for my radio show. Plus, I'm cancelling my subscription to 'Grit.' I get all the news I need from THE COMEDY WIRE!"

radio days ended long ago, but as a professional comedy entertainer, I
keep right on top of current comedy with the help of the
Comedy Wire helps keep me updated and funny on the
current, the clever and the obscure...It is a key to keeping my laughs fresh
masses on cruise ships, casinos and for corporate dates. Humor ripped
right from the headlines is a slogan that works for me, and the Comedy
Wire helps provide that factor...I highly
to any professional speaker, as the topical edge helps you leap over
mundane comic performer."

"Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoy and use Comedy Wire. We first discovered Pat and Laura years ago when they worked for another service. When they left that service, so did we. It was months later we found them and the Comedy Wire, and have been with them ever since. We even had it put into our contracts when we changed stations last June. We went from a CHR female audience to a Classic Rock male dominated audience, and didn't miss a beat. That's how versatile your service is. Keep up the great job!"
