I posted portions of this in the thread about favorite stand-up comics, but I felt it was important enough to deserve its own thread.
Anyway, this site just keeps getting better and better every day. I love stand-up comedy and have for as long as I can remember. The stand-up comic database is a great idea, and I love that their works are incorporated into their bios.
I own close to 100 stand-up DVDs and probably more than 150 stand-up albums. I always keep my eyes open for new albums/dvds, but not all comics sell their albums through big resellers like Amazon. Take Bill Burr, for example. He has an album called “Emotionally Unavailable” that is absolutely hysterical. Yet, if you don’t check billburr.com, good luck finding it. If somebody were to catch Bill Burr and Comedy Central and rush to Amazon to look for a CD, they wouldn’t find one and would likely conclude he doesn’t have any. The same holds true for Bobby Slayton (the “Pit Bull of Comedy”). He’s got 2 albums, neither of which are easy to find through typical resellers. As a result of this fact, most people don’t even know these people have albums.
I think having a database like you have envisioned will prove to be incredibly helpful, and will likely result in more albums sales for these comics ... which, in turn, will encourage them to release more CDs. Everybody wins.
Thanks for all the hard work!!!
