The Deal Expands the AdLarge Media Digital Audio Portfolio and Includes Breuer’s The Metal In Me, Mets And More, Plus New Podcasts Currently In Development
New York, NY – February 29, 2016 -- AdLarge Media is proud to announce its extensive partnership with Jim Breuer for exclusive ad sales representation of several podcasts hosted by the celebrated comedian and actor, including The Metal In Me and Mets And More. New podcasts from Breuer are currently in development and also will be represented exclusively by AdLarge Media, further expanding its already impressive digital audio advertising platform.
As a lifelong hard rock and metal fan, music has played a huge role in Breuer’s comedy and life – now he’s taking on the funny side of it all with The Metal In Mepodcast. The weekly show features dead-on impressions, hilarious bits, guest interviews, and an ensemble cast of musical friends. While The Metal In Me’s title references the head banger sounds of heavy metal rock, the one-hour podcast delves into a broad range of fun topics from madcap discussion on the meaning of dreams to Name that Heavy Metal Scream.
Spurred on by the phenomenal response to his social media recaps of Mets games, Breuer, who is a super fan, launched the Mets And More podcast with an expanded – and hilarious -- take on life, love, work, and baseball. The Mets And More podcast will start up again with the first pitch of the baseball season.
“It’s reality comedy,” says Breuer in describing his podcasts and adds, “it’s like hanging out with your best friends.”
“We are very excited to add Jim’s podcasts to our stellar digital audio platform,” notes Cathy Csukas, Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer, AdLarge Media. “He is a great comedic talent, and his podcasts provide our advertisers with more options from our growing portfolio for reaching consumers with highly engaging content.”
“Great podcasters know how to tell a story,” observes Jay Green, Vice President Digital Sales and Content Partnerships for AdLarge Media. “Jim has a way -- whether through his podcasts, stand-up, or just rooting-on his favorite team -- of connecting with his fans by telling his story.”
“I’m having an awesome time, and the audience has been terrific,” states Breuer. “I wanted an ad sales partner who understands what I’m doing. I hit on the right team with AdLarge Media.”

Named one of Comedy Central’s 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time, Breuer is one of the most recognizable comedians in entertainment, known for his charismatic stage antics, off-the-wall humor, and family-friendly stand-up. During his four years on SNL, Breuer quickly became a fan-favorite for his original character “Goat Boy” and his dead-on impressions of actor Joe Pesci.
