CAMERON ESPOSITO TO RELEASE ‘RAPE JOKES’
ON SEPTEMBER 28 VIA ASPECIALTHING RECORDS
VINYL AND DIGITAL AVAILABLE
Stand-up comic, actor and writer CAMERON ESPOSITO will release her critically-acclaimed special, ‘RAPE JOKES’ as an album on Friday, September 28 via ASPECIALTHING RECORDS. A personal exploration of the #MeToo movement, Rape Jokes premiered to rave reviews within the first 24 hours. The hour has been praised as “unapologetically hard-hitting, bracingly timely hour” (Vanity Fair), “blistering, masterful, tragic, hilarious” (New York Magazine) and the “first great stand-up set of the #MeToo era” (The Daily Beast).
Rape Jokes will be available digitally and on marbled vinyl for purchase in record stores and on Cameron’s tour. 100% of the proceeds will go to RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. Cameron has raised over $70,000 for RAINN thus far.
The comedian forewent the traditional route of releasing her hour with a studio backing to raise awareness and make an impact in the community. The show was self-financed with the help of friends who donated their time to maximize the proceeds for RAINN. Cameron turned around the final product within a week and released it for free on her own website in June.
PRE-ORDER CAMERON ESPOSITO ‘RAPE JOKES’:
Vinyl available in select record stores and at the live shows. (Go to TOUR page.)

JONATHAN PIE PREMIERES NEW COMEDY SHOW IN THE U.S.
‘JONATHAN PIE: BACK TO THE STUDIO’ IN SELECT CITIES THIS FALL
TICKETS ON SALE NOW
JONATHAN PIE, the UK’s angriest news reporter, brings his new live comedy show Jonathan Pie: Back to the Studio for its U.S. premiere in select cities this fall.
A frustrated news reporter known for venting in unguarded “off-camera” rants and satirizing the world of politics, entertainment and the media, Jonathan Pie has amassed a huge online following and notably shot to fame in America after his response to the election of Donald Trump racked up over 160 million views worldwide. Pie’s weekly videos regularly achieve millions of views.
The creation of Tom Walker, Jonathan Pie’s newest live show Back to the Studio is already an overseas hit with performances across the UK including Edinburgh and sold out nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. Back to the Studio has been praised as “a true tour de force” (Evening Standard) and a “superb blend of well-informed political analysis, hard truths, gratuitous swearing and guilty laughs” (What’s On London). In this show, Jonathan Pie is angrier than ever and his aim is set at the Right, the Left…and everything in between.
“An electrifying performance” – Chortle
“as exquisitely performed as it is written” – The Scotsman
“As with Ricky Gervais’ Humanity, Pie does an excellent job emphasizing the irrelevance of most moral outrage and exposing its fickle nature…a funny and thought-provoking performance” – What’s On London
