Partnered with Rooftop Media, the Weekly Stand-up Show Gets a Fresh New Look with a Brand New Host
Revision3, the leading Internet Television network, today announced its re-launch of “ROFL”, the hysterical weekly comedy show that leaves viewers “Rolling On the Floor Laughing”! Continuing their partnership with Rooftop Media, the revamped online program featuring the best in stand up comedy in High Definition, named one of iTunes’ top 20 podcasts of 2009, now features the talented funnyman Alex Koll as host and will be available today at Revision3.com/ROFL.
“ROFL is a cornerstone of our comedy line-up at Revision3,” said Ryan Vance, vice president of production & programming, Revision3. “We’re really excited to revamp and re-launch the show that brings our audience the best stand-up from around the country every week. We’re also excited to add the always funny Alex Koll to our hosting line up.”
No stranger to online programming, Alex Koll is a San Francisco-based comedian and entertainer who has created award-winning videos for IFC.com, SuperDeluxe.com, Rooftop Comedy and of course, Revision3. In 2009, Koll performed in the “New Faces” showcase at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, garnering a “Best of New Faces” nod. Last year, he appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and has also received acclaim for his acts at several sketch festivals across the country, including SXSW.
”No one delivers the quality and breadth of great comedy that ROFL does each week,” said Colin Decker, vice president and head of programming for Rooftop Media. “After a huge debut last year with millions of viewers, we think the addition of an edgy, hilarious talent like Alex will take the show even further.”
