KOCH Records and High 5 Records Announce the Release of the New DVD, "Comics On Duty: We Love You, Mrs. Bevins," on September 11th, 2007

New Comedy DVD Features Comedians Danny Bevins, Sarah Tiana, Dave Mishevitz, and John Bizarre

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - KOCH Records and High 5 Records announce the DVD release "Comics On Duty: We Love You, Mrs. Bevins," a new DVD featuring four of today's hottest up-and-coming comedians, on September 11th, 2007.

The DVD features comedians Danny Bevins, Sarah Tiana, Dave Mishevitz and John Bizarre as they take you on their journey while traveling and performing throughout Iraq as part of the Comics On Duty tour. Braving convoys and choppers along with the troops, from the largest base in Baghdad to the most remote camp in Ashraf, and from the busiest aircraft carrier to the loneliest oil platform duty post -- these comics, as they film, learn about a different country, about their own military and about the one thing everyone over there misses the most -- their families. Four different voices tell a story of sacrifice, hospitality and fear using the only weapon they possess -- their sense of humor.

The Comics On Duty World Tour provides a comedy program with national, headlining acts to the U.S. Armed Forces. Its versatile, compact format is designed to reach both large and small audiences and can travel to the most remote locations. Since its first performance in 1992, the Comics On Duty World Tour has performed nearly 2600 shows worldwide, boosting the morale of hundreds of thousands of military personnel.

A portion of the profits of this DVD will go to assist veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and their families.
