“The only thing funnier than Kevin Hart is Kevin Hart in conversation with another comedian,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “I’m excited to present our Inside Jokes podcast to listeners across the globe, in addition to the new shows on SiriusXM, as we continue to collaborate with Laugh Out Loud to shape Kevin’s channel into the pinnacle of diverse comedy programming in audio entertainment.”
