The BEARDS OF COMEDY Tour is quickly becoming one of the hottest shows in the U.S., showcasing four of the funniest, freshest - and bearded - faces in comedy. COMEDY CENTRAL Records releases The Beards of Comedy "Cardio Mix" digital album on Tuesday, November 22.

The Beards of Comedy, Andy Sandford (TBS), Joe Zimmerman (Rooftop Comedy's Golden Shingle Award nominee), TJ Young (Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival's Stand Out Stand Up winner) and Dave Stone (Adult Swim's "Squidbillies"), deliver an original brand of humor that is deeply rooted in stand-up and lightly blended with avant-garde elements of music, sketch and improv. Offering a smart, quirky and refreshing twist on a traditional comedy show, the Beards sell out venues in numerous markets across the country.

Recorded at Atlanta's Laughing Skull Lounge, "Cardio Mix's" topics run the gamut from chicken carcasses and Big Top cupcakes to Curves meatheads and Olive Garden pedophiles. There's even an acoustic musical romp entitled "Sad Song" thrown in for added flavor. The result is THE comedy album of the YEAR to work out to, should one choose to do such a thing.

Previously released recordings by COMEDY CENTRAL Records include: Patton Oswalt's "Finest Hour," Lewis Black's "The Prophet," "Louis C.K. Hilarious," Dane Cook's "Greatest Hits," Bo Burnham's "WORDS, WORDS, WORDS," Mitch Hedberg's "Do You Believe in Gosh?," Dane Cook's platinum-selling "Harmful If Swallowed" and double-platinum "Retaliation," Grammy® Award-winning "Lewis Black: The Carnegie Hall Performance," among others.
