"This is fantastic news for Funny Media Group and all of the comedians who joined us for Season 1," said UMAX President and CEO Rondell Fletcher. "VYRE has an amazing platform that will bring our comedy content to a global audience. This is huge for us."

"This is another step in VYRE taking comedy to the next level," said David Hill, VYRE President. "We are excited to work with Funny Media Group. Rondell is a forward thinker and it shows in everything Funny Media Group is doing."

After the acquisition of Funny Media Group in May 2021, UMAX has now fully transitioned into comedy development as the vehicle to achieve a cash-flow positive operation and to provide the best return on shareholder's investment.

Fletcher oversaw the production of 200 comedy specials for Season 1, and Season 2 begins taping in a few weeks. So far, 50 of the 200 shows have hit YouTube, resulting in more than 2 million views.

"We have built a pipeline of comedy specials that is attracting attention in the industry, and a significant audience on YouTube," Mr. Fletcher says. "VYRE will help us reach millions more."

The shows are filmed in the Comedy Cube, Funny Media Group's state-of-the-art facility in downtown Los Angeles. Shows are released on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Mr. Fletcher has an extensive background in production and media. He has owned his own production studio in Los Angeles for the past 20 years and has produced national shows for CNN, FOX, Food Network and Comedy Central, among others.

The short-term goal for Funny Media Group is to produce content for streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon with the long-term goal of building a large media catalog for acquisition.
