10Duke and Jongleurs partner to bring professional comedy to social media

10Duke, the European leader in bespoke social media platforms, today announces that it has partnered with Jongleurs, the leading brand in British comedy, to assist with the distribution and monetisation of Jongleurs video content throughout online and mobile channels.

Maria Kempinska, Jongleurs’ founder comments: “We’re looking to extend the Jongelurs brand across the Internet so that fans can access clips of Britain’s best comedians online from wherever and whenever they want. By partnering with 10Duke we can quickly deliver our content internationally, monetise it through ticket sales, advertising and pay per view, and help up and coming comedians gain international exposure. We chose to partner with 10Duke because of the reach it gives us to social media cost effectively and easily.”

Neil Fenton, founder and Chairman of 10Duke comments, “When it comes to comedy there is no better brand out there than Jongleurs. Comedy is one of the most popular categories of video consumed by Internet users and 10Duke’s advanced international video streaming capabilities means we can automatically distribute clips of some of the UK’s leading comedians to an international audience both online and via mobile. Content remains king, but it is an increasing challenge to get it seen by a fragmented online audience – our platform helps Jongleurs to meet that challenge.

The 10Duke social media engine allows Jongleurs’ videos to be quickly and simply syndicated throughout many of the leading social networks online, including Facebook, MySpace, and Orkut. The content is intelligently tagged to increase its visibility to search engines, and formatted for simultaneous distribution to mobile devices. Content can easily be shared between users and simple information tags allows comedy fans to book tickets to see their favourite comedian and enjoy shows online or via a mobile device.
