Pandora is ready to make you laugh. The streaming-music service on Tuesday launched a new comedy station: New Comedy.

The station debuted with a mixtape by Gabriel Iglesias called Five "Fluffy" Years. It features a collection of skits from Iglesias' favorite comics, including Nikki Glaser, Brian Regan, Rachel Feinstein, Jim Jeffries and Sam Morril.

In general, the New Comedy channel targets folks seeking to discover new comedians and new material from old favorites.

Along with the new station, Pandora shared some notable factoids about comedy listening on the service. For instance, Jim Gaffigan is its most popular comic, Kevin Hart's "Situation on the Phone/My Biggest Fear" is its top skit, and comedy fans tend to favor metal, punk, alternative, indie, blues and rap music.
