We are SUPER DUPER EXCITED to announce the two newest comedy releases on Kill Rock Stars: the debut albums by Ian Karmel and Emily Heller!

IAN KARMEL is a Portland comedian whose unique perspective landed him the “Funniest Person in Portland” crown. His debut album '9.2 On Pitchfork’, recorded live before a hometown crowd, finds Ian waxing poetic about reviving Pimp My Ride, his differences with Harry Styles, being Jewish (but atheist) and other hilarious anecdotes. Ian made his late night debut on CONAN, appeared regularly on Chelsea Lately, plus TV credits including IFC’s Portlandia and the Travel Channel’s Best Sandwich in America, as well as a post-game analyst and commentator for the Portland Trailblazers. He currently lives in LA where he is a writer for CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden.

EMILY HELLER recorded her debut album ‘Good For Her’ before a packed house at Union Hall in Brooklyn, taking the crowd on a ride through her awkward teenage years in San Francisco, misadventures in housesitting, being single, her love of hip-hop and more. Emily was named Comic to Watch by both Variety and Comedy Central and featured in Marie Claire’s “Funniest Women of 2015.” She has performed on CONAN and appeared on @midnight, is the creator and star of the Above Average series "The Future," co-hosts the podcast “Baby Geniuses” and is currently a series regular on the TBS comedy Ground Floor.

We are excited to announce that comedian Emily Heller has joined the KRS family and will be recording her debut album on June 3rd at Union Hall in Brooklyn, NY. Tickets to her album taping are available at We’ve been fans of Emily’s comedy stylings for a few years now, so when she asked us if we would want to release her album, we considered it for less than thirty seconds before replying, “YES, PLEASE!”

Emily has appeared on Conan, John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, and @midnight. She has been named a Comic to Watch by both Variety and Comedy Central. She is the co-host of the Baby Geniuses podcast with cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt.
