It plays a file /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en/vm-login.wav

The recording says "Comedian Mail, please log in now." We thought we still
needed a voice prompt, so we recorded a new message.

I am not sure what happens if the file is missing, try removing it and test.
Alternatively the file could be empty (0 seconds of audio) or have a tone
or some other sound in it as feedback.

The file has to be in the right format for asterisk, after recording it on
a Windows machine, I used this command to convert it:

sox infile.wav -r 8000 -e signed-integer -b 16 -c 1 outfile.wav

"Sox" figures out the input format.
