Laugh USA is a Sirius XM Radio channel featuring family comedy. The channel's slogan is "Classic Comedy and Good Clean Fun." The comedy aired sometimes contains mild profanities and slightly risqué material, and is only very rarely considered offensive. The channel broadcasts on channel 96 on XM Satellite Radio and on Sirius Satellite Radio (where it was previously on 105, replacing Laugh Break as part of the Sirius/XM merger on November 12, 2008).

Artists[edit]

Although there is much variety in the format, comedian segments commonly include Bill Cosby, Bill Engvall, Brian Regan, Carl Hurley, Chonda Pierce, Father Guido Sarducci, Gabriel Iglesias, Jeanne Robertson and others. Vintage routines can also be heard, including classics from Abbott and Costello, Bob Newhart, Bob and Ray, Henny Youngman, Mel Brooks, and Rodney Dangerfield, among others.

Features[edit]

Before the merger in 2008 this channel featured a weekly mix known as the Comedy Piñata hosted by Joel Haas, where comedy was often delivered on a single topic, often seasonal, from various of its comedians' routines. Comedy Piñata was also known to highlight a single artist, whether by simply presenting a comedy concert, or in a format where standup comedy segments are woven into a sit-down interview presentation.
