KOCH Records and High 5 Records to Release "10,000 Laughs: Best Of The Boston Comedy Festival"

2-CD Set Featuring 16 Comedians to Be Released on September 25th, 2007

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - KOCH Records announces the release of "10,000 Laughs: Best Of The Boston Comedy Festival," a 2-CD set to be released on September 25, 2007 -- just in time for this year's festival.

Much like the U. S. Open, the Boston Comedy Festival is the only festival of its kind -- open to all comedians around the country to compete for the coveted spots in Boston at the finals. Of the many who compete, only 90 are invited to Boston. And only the select few, the funniest and most original, have made it to the finals and to this record.

"10,000 Laughs: Best Of The Boston Comedy Festival" is a must-have for comedy lovers. It features 16 of today's hottest comedians performing the acts that vaulted them into the finals at the Boston Comedy Festival, making them the 'Best of the Fest.' A double CD with over two hours of laughs, the material is fresh, irreverent, provoking, but most of all, hilarious. Instead of listening to just one comic for over an hour or more, you get 16 short blasts, 16 different ways to make you laugh. And laugh you will. 10,000 laughs... go ahead and count them.
