Independence Air Announces New Partnership With Laugh Factory Comedy Clubs;

Performances by ‘The FLYi Guy’ and Other Comedians to Be Featured on Independence Air digEplayer Inflight Entertainment System

DULLES, Va., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Low-fare airline Independence Air (NASDAQ:FLYi) is proud to announce a new partnership with the World Famous Laugh Factory comedy clubs to co-produce original comedy material that will appear on the airline’s digEplayer inflight entertainment system. The comedy programming will include stand-up performances by Independence Air employee and airport comic Dave George, “The FLYi Guy,” as well as other Laugh Factory comics. The first bi-monthly installment is now available to customers on all Independence Air flights to/from its West Coast destinations including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle and San Jose.

The Laugh Factory clubs — located on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood as well as Times Square in New York — are among the best known comedy stages in the world, and have served as regular performance venues for stars including Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, Rodney Dangerfield, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, Dave Chappelle, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Jon Lovitz, Roseanne and many more. The club has hosted television shows and films, as well as numerous Hollywood events. The Laugh Factory describes itself as ” … proudly catering to up-and-coming comics, helping them to develop their talent rather than exploit it.”

Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada said, “We are excited to enter this new relationship with Independence Air. This is exactly the kind of win-win corporate partnership we are always on the lookout for, since it creates a great new opportunity for us to promote our clubs and our brand name, and provides Independence Air with a new entertainment option for its customers that no other airline can offer.” He added, “I believe the airline industry has never particularly been known for its sense of humor, so I’ve been intrigued by the whole idea of being associated with an ‘airport comic’ since I first met Dave George. He’s a great new talent who is perfect in this one- of-a-kind role. We look forward to featuring The FLYi Guy at our clubs, and to providing some of our regular Laugh Factory comics with a new venue for their material at 37,000 feet above America.”
