Music streaming service Pandora is celebrating a milestone this week with five years having passed since it introduced its first ever dedicated comedy station. In that time, the station has racked up an impressive 433 million plays, totaling over 1.1 billion hours of content streamed.
To celebrate that fact, the website is rolling out two new features aimed at comedy fans: A dedicated “New Comedy” station that will highlight new material from the comedy world and a comedy playlist curated by comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias.
The “New Comedy” station will feature content from fresh-faced comics and veterans alike, including comics such as Brian Regan, Nikki Glaser, Jim Jefferies, Rachel Feinstein, Sam Morril and many more. Iglesias’s Pandora mixtape — called “Five ‘Fluffy’ Years” — contains bits from some of his biggest influences in comedy, from legends like George Carlin, Robin Williams and Chris Rock to more modern acts like Gina Yashere and Jeff Dunham.
As part of the celebration, Pandora shared a few numbers and fun facts. The platform disclosed that Jim Gaffigan is the most popular comic on all of Pandora with over 647 million spins to date. The top comedy piece on Pandora is a Kevin Hart bit called “Situation on the Phone/My Biggest Fear”, with 31.2 million plays, and Amy Schumer’s got the top album, Cutting, generating over 590 million plays each month
