XM Satellite Radio has designated July as "Laugh Out Loud" month. The satcaster plans to celebrate the art of comedy by highlighting original specials and other programming featuring some of the biggest names in the game. For example, every night at 10 p.m. throughout July, XM will air a different episode of Stand Up, Sit Down, the series where comics discuss their careers and craft with XM Comedy host Sonny Fox. Lewis Black, George Carlin, John Cleese, Dane Cook, Bill Cosby, Jim Gaffigan, Gilbert Gottfried, Mitch Hedberg, Robert Klein, Richard Lewis, Kathleen Madigan, Carlos Mencia and many others will be featured on the show throughout the month.

Also, XM will showcase other comedy programming, including classic cuts from Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, Bob Newhart and others; the greatest comedy duos; the best in Canadian comedy; timeless comedy routines from the Monty Python group, and more. "Since XM became the first to offer the 24-hour uncensored comedy format anywhere on radio - satellite or terrestrial - our comedy offerings have grown from mere concept to four channels with some of the strongest listenership on the platform," said Eric Logan, EVP of Programming for XM Satellite Radio. "The response to XM's comedy programming has far surpassed expectations with XM Comedy alone consistently ranking as one of the top five most listened to channels on XM."
