As mentioned, comedian Chris Gethard is releasing My Comedy Album on April 22 via Don Giovanni, and he's celebrating with a release show in NYC at Knitting Factory the day it comes out. When that show was first announced, not many details were announced, but here's more. He'll be joined by a number of musical/comedic guests including Mikey Erg (of The Ergs and tons of other bands), Shannon O'Neill, who will reprise her Prison Freaks comedy show for this one night only, local DIY vets (and Don Giovanni labelmates) Shellshag, DG label head Joe Steinhardt (who's promising quality jokes), singer/songwriter Mal Blum, and comedian/Bob's Burgers star Eugene Mirman. Still more unannounced guests will be showing up as well. Tickets are still available.
Chris also recently released the first track from his new album, "Mother's Day," a bit about how on a recent Mother's Day his mom told him "a story she's never told anyone" about his birth. Listen to that, with his full list of upcoming dates (including other Chris solo and Chris Gethard Show events in NYC), below...
