VidAngel’s Dry Bar Comedy is one of the fastest-growing stand-up comedy shows in all America. The show is now getting over 20 million views a week across all social media platforms and has 4.7 million fans on Facebook.
It’s apparent people love it, but why is that? In this article, we’ll explore four possible reasons behind the show’s increased popularity, so make sure to keep reading.
1. An Opportunity to Discover New Talent
Hundreds of comedians have already been featured on Dry Bar Comedy.
This has provided viewers with an exciting way to learn about new comedians who might not appear on Saturday Night Live or other big comedy shows.
We’re talking about entertainers like Daniel Eachus -- a rising young star in the comedy world who is making waves in the industry. And now, even more, people are starting to take notice of him.
The show has also provided a chance audiences to be reunited with comedy vets that viewers wished got more exposure.
You’ll never know whose comedy special you will be able to watch next on the platform -- and that’s one of the reasons why people love it.
2. Dry Bar Comedy Has a Family-Friendly Twist
The success of the show proves there is a considerable market for comedy, which has been underserved up until now.
We’re talking about people who want to be able to watch comedy alongside their families and not worry that someone will be offended or be subjected to foul language.
By providing entertainment, the entire family can enjoy -- including the kids -- the platform managed to rise in popularity and win some avid fans who keep coming back.
3. Answers the Preferences of Today’s Content Consumers
More and more people consume content via social media, and comedy makes no exception.
One of the factors which helped the platform explode in popularity is the fact the production and editing are perfect for social media, including Facebook and YouTube.
Also, by making their way to mobile devices around the world, they reached a massive audience who prefers to consume the majority of content this way -- as opposed to turning on the television to watch a show.
Their funny, short clips are the perfect companion to people waiting for the bus, eating lunch, or commuting home from work.
However, they mainly publish small segments of their comedy specials. People still go to VidAngel to watch the full performances. So, social media is an important marketing tool for the brand -- and an incredibly effective one.
4. There’s Something for Everybody
Variety is not an issue on Dry Bar Comedy. If you like observational humor, then you can watch someone like Steve Soelberg, a headlining stand-up comic from Salt Lake City who is known for creating material based on the commonplace aspects of everyday life.
If you enjoy self-deprecating humor, then there’s something for you too. Comedians, such as Brandon Vestal and Leland Klassen, are known for their sarcasm and their hilarious ability to often poke fun at themselves to get the response they want from the audience.
There’s also variety in terms of the topics the comedians tackle in their content. Whether you are a pet owner, a married man, or a woman past the age of 25, you’ll most likely find at least a few comedians whose material you’ll find hilariously-relatable.
Thanks to its diverse content, the platform appeals to a wide array of audiences.
It’s great for families interested in some G-rated weekend fun, for couples who want to unwind after work and for friends looking to kill some time before a movie.
Pretty much everybody can watch something on the platform and enjoy it.
Instead of a Conclusion
The reasons we’ve included in this article are, of course, not the only ones why people love the platform. It will be interesting to see how the platform will evolve in the upcoming months and years, and if people will maintain the same level of enthusiasm.
