Really great stuff. I think a lot of his content goes in the direction of a lot of stuff that is "trendy" right now, so if this catches the right ears, he could be huge. I think this is only the second new comedy album I've listened to this year, the other being Pete Holmes. Any other worthwhile recommendations for this year?
That's awesome, man. I'm really glad you liked it. I totally agree with your 'trendy' statement. He's definitely on the cusp of absolutely blowing up, from what I'm hearing. He has a second brand-new special coming out later this year, it's pretty crazy how prolific he is currently.
As far as other new comedy that I'm into, check any of these out:
Mike Lawrence - Sadamantium
Dave Anthony - Shame Chamber
Chris Hardwick - Mandroid
Eugene Mirman - An Evening of Comedy in a Fake, Underground Laboratory
Kyle Kinane - Whiskey Icarus
Those are like the 'high profile' releases (I've got a longer list complete with lesser-known stuff that I'm putting together for a mid-year type feature). Also, if you're feeling ambitious still, the new season of Comedy Central's The Half Hour has been airing down here the past few months. It's basically the new iteration of Comedy Central Presents, and there's been a handful of great episodes of that too.
