Bill Burr and Al Madrigal’s All Things Comedy Podcast Network is already a big force in the podcasting and broadcast world, and a new partnership could take the platform to a new level. ATC has announced a partnership with Wondery, the largest independent podcast publisher in the world.

Wondery claimed the #1 and #2 top new shows in 2018 and its shows are consistently on recommended lists and ranking lists. The network claims twenty-one #1 Apple podcasts since launching just three years ago, and several of their storytelling serial-like series have been or are under contract to be adapted for television.

Some of ATC’s powerhouse podcasts include Bill Burr’s Monday Morning Podcast and Bobby Lee’s Tiger Belly, and Bert Kreischer’s Bertcast, Tom Papa’s Come to Papa, About Last Night with Adam Ray and Brad Williams, Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank, Dean Delray’s Let There Be Talk, Danish & O’Neill, the Doug Stanhope Podcast, and Eddie Pepitones Pep Talks with the Bitter Buddha.
“By partnering with Wondery, All Things Comedy takes yet another step in our mission to bring the best comedic voices to listeners everywhere. The Wondery team is the best in the business at developing audiences. Together we will bring more laughter to those listeners and opportunity to the comedy community,” said Mike Bertolina, CEO of All Things Comedy
Al Madrigal, Co-Founder of All Things Comedy, adds “When we conceived of ATC our goal was simple. We wanted to protect our fellow comedians from losing control of their IP and band together to promote one another. This partnership with Wondery takes that vision to a supercharged level. ATC comedians are now fully equipped and ready to take control of their own business.”
