Marlin Croons is the winner of bBooth’s first “Laugh At My Expense” comedy contest. The contest invited Mike Cano’s fans to submit funny one-liner videos through bBooth’s mobile app, Songstagram, soon-to-be renamed ‘kord’.
The “roast” style contest challenged participants to record and share their one-liner video’s using the app. Marlin Croon, formerly of Motown Records, received a cash reward, a meet and greet with Mike Cano, and a VIP table at The Ontario Improv’s “Mike Cano’s Comedy Party”.

“As a former music marketing executive, I was so excited to find the Songstagram/kord platform,” Croon said. If I could have had a tool like this when I was doing grassroots marketing for artists, it would have grown our fan engagement exponentially!”

Cano is now the host of his own comedy show, “Mike Cano’s Comedy Party”, held regularly at The Ontario Improv.
