with immediate effect utilising the existing recordings owned by them for
immediate release on a royalty sharing basis. Over the coming months Jongleurs
will record many more acts from its existing and proposed new sites for digital
distribution making many hundreds of hours of `stand up' comedy available via
digital stores.

Michael Infante, Chief Executive of One Media, said: "We are very excited to be
expanding our digital catalogue with comedy performances from up and coming
comedians recorded from this fantastic set of venues. Great comedians such as
Michael McIntyre, Eddie Izzard, Harry Enfield, Jack Dee and Al Murray all had
their careers launched through Jongleurs Comedy Clubs. We believe that over the
coming years many new comedians will perform in the clubs and will be available
as recordings through the One Media network of digital stores."

 

Maria Kempinska (MBE), CEO of Jongleurs, commented: "Jongleurs have a history
of developing comic talent to stardom, we are happy to be working with One
Media to deliver comic talent digitally globally and combining forces we will
make the world laugh".

but a very few. It enjoys sales in the fast-growing digital music and video

market, as well as the traditional music industry. During 2009 One Media has
