Okay, this special is so great. Geoff Asmus makes me laugh so hard. If you watch this special he’s going to be your new favorite comedian. If you like Dave Atell, Jeff Ross, Richard Belzer, or any of the comedians who I’m always writing about as my favorites, just joke slingers, this is your guy. I met him in Boston last year when I was just getting back into stand-up. We were both playing other clubs and got onto one of Josh Mandel’s shows in the basement of some bar, and he came down and really blew me away. I know he’s also a big Comedy Cellar guy. I just like how twisted he is. I don’t want to say too much about the special. Just watch it.
It’s non-stop one joke after the next, he’s been growing on Youtube with reels, in a short doc on him that’s damn brilliant that Tucker Brookshire did called ‘On the Road Again’. He recounts a turning point in it when after ten years one reel finally broke our for him.
GROWING UP CATHOLIC – THE GAME CHANGER
THE BEST JOKE
This happens to be the joke of his that I first saw that got me.
THE ONLY FUNNY WHITE MAN
He’s on the podcast tomorrow too. So we’ll talk about the special and you can hear his take on it so you don’t need to hear me talk much more about it.
Watch it. Then watch him on Standupworld, the podcast! More important, watch his special, then go see him live.
CHECK OUT WILL ON STANDUPWORLD PODCAST #32
