New Unreleased Bernie Mac Stand-Up Album Announced as Part of Kevin Hart’s New, Multi-Year Deal with SiriusXM
Comedian and businessman, Kevin Hart has recently announced that his production company, Hartbeat has signed a new, multi-year deal with SiriusXM. Included in that announcement was the news of a never before seen full-length stand-up album from one of the Original Kings of Comedy, Bernie Mac.
SiriusXM stated that it has extended its relationship with Hart and his entertainment company Hartbeat. With the extension, Hartbeat will still curate content that mixes culture with comedy for Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Radio (ch. 96).
“I am so excited to be able to continue working with my SiriusXM family and grow our audience through our existing IP as well as the expansion of Gold Minds and the additions of Punkie, Diallo, and Blake,” said Hart in a written statement. “SiriusXM has been a valued relationship of mine and Hartbeat’s for some time and the fact that we were able to launch Gold Minds and now expand the program to include the brightest, boldest, and most impactful voices of our time blows my mind.”
Laugh Out Loud Radio will exclusively release the first-ever solo full-length stand-up album by the late comedian Bernie Mac. When the comedian started his career, he was known to watch a VHS tape of his own comedy shows in order to review and fine-tune his stand-up act. The remastered collection which will soon be made available, Bernie Mac: Tapes From A King, will reveal a unique view into the creative process of a comedy legend. Hartbeat produced the album in collaboration with NBW Films and Rhonda R. McCullough. McCullough is Mac’s wife of 31 years. The album will be showcased exclusively on Laugh Out Loud Radio for one month. After its initial run on the radio show, it will be released widely across all streaming platforms.
In addition to the premiere of Hart’s podcast Gold Minds which will be weekly on Wednesday evenings, Kevin and The Plastic Cup Boyz – Joey Wells, Will “Spank” Horton and Na’im Lynn – will continue to host Straight From The Hart on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. ET on Laugh Out Loud Radio.
