Phorecast Podcast No 07 – Andi Smith, RooftopComedy

Andi Smith one of the founders of Rooftopcomedy


The Phorecast Audio Podcast is honored to have with us entrepreneur and stand-up comedian Andi Smith. Besides being a very funny comic who has appeared on NBCs Last Comic Standing two seasons now, Andi Smith is one of the founders of the start-up RooftopComedy. Rooftop is an innovative company that uses the internet and mobile distributors to showcase new and established comedy talent, organizing big comedy events and making it accessible to a whole new audience.

Rooftop produces and distributes real comedy through the internet and promises that their clips are raw, uncensored, and not filtered through a bunch of uptight corporate suits. Rooftop is backed by one of the worlds leading venture capital firms Azure Capital Partners and have partnered with distributors such as Nokia, Mobilestreams, Itunes and Facebook. In 2006 Rooftop Comedy took the top honors of “Best Investment Idea” at the InvestorFest; TechCoire’s Investorfest in Sacramento CA brought together over 80 leading venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.

Andi Smith, who left a career as Creative Director at among other places Icon Media Lab to become a comic, has just released her comedy album, Home Perm and has received rave reviews.
