From discovery at comedy festivals throughout the country (where Uproar gives a recording contract to the winners), to state of the art recording live in top comedy clubs, Uproar nurtures, supports and develops the best comedic talents of our time. Our unique catalog boasts seasoned veterans of the stand-up comedy world such as Brian Regan, Bobby Collins, John Pinette, Alonzo Bodden, Margaret Cho, Pablo Francisco, Suzanne Westenhoefer, and Scott Kennedy among others, as well as up-and-comers Tyler Boeh, John Moses, AJ Finney, Andrew Norelli, and Kabir Singh, just to name a few. We also feature the classic comedy stylings of such notables as Jonathan Winters, LaWanda Page (hilarious as Aunt Esther on the Sanford & Son TV series), Slappy White, Shecky Greene, Marsha Warfield (Roz the bailiff on the hit 80’s sitcom Night Court) and Rich Little, not to mention the legendary comedy albums (on CD and digital) of the 70’s and 80’s National Lampoon featuring many of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live.
Uproar Entertainment is under the helm of David Drozen, the man who discovered Richard Pryor in early 1970, signed him to his first recording contract, and produced 12 of his albums for the legendary comedy label Laff Records. Included in these are the classics “Craps After Hours”, “Are you Serious”, “Super Nigger”, and “Black Ben the Blacksmith”. On national television, Chris Rock called “Black Ben the Blacksmith” the best comedy album ever produced! Of the 12 Pryor albums David produced for Laff, 6 were nominated for Grammy’s including the Grammy winner “Rev. Du Rite”. With an unparalleled ear for comedic talent, Mr. Drozen is responsible for discovering many of today’s great comedy talents, producing their very first comedy albums and igniting their comedy careers. Under his leadership Uproar Entertainment is makin’ comedy happen!
