Karen Kilgariff's "Live at the Bootleg" out today!

Great news kids, Karen Kilgariff's "Live at the Bootleg" is officially out! In an early review, TheSpitTake praises Kilgariff's "multi-layered observational comedy with recurring (but not overbearing) feminist themes set against metaphor-laden love songs"and hails 'Live at the Bootleg'  as "fresh and vital."
Best known for her work on "Mr. Show" and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Karen has been a longtime favorite of those in the know, and has recently transitioned from classic stand-up comic to acoustic troubadour. Recorded live in LA and completely uncut, Live at the Bootleg captures musical comedy at its rawest, and sets a new bar for a genre that is rarely done right.   

'Live at the Bootleg's first LP pressings are available on orange colored vinyl and comes with a free digital download. Order your copy today!

RIP International Shipping

Apologies to our friends and loved ones overseas, but as of today AST Records will no longer be offering international shipping from our webstore. Recent rate hikes and policy changes at the US Post Office have made it a losing prospect. Yes, you too, Canada. Hopefully you can find the record you want through another online retailer.

Quick note on the AST Store. Orders received from now until 11/8 will ship on 11/11. If you need something urgently, look for it on Amazon.

Jimmy Pardo's "Sprezzatura" out today!

ASPECIALTHING RECORDS is proud to announce the release of Jimmy Pardo's new comedy album SPREZZATURA, available wherever fine comedy is sold.

Jimmy is the host of the award-winning and trailblazing podcast "Never Not Funny" and the opening act for CONAN on TBS, but first and foremost, he is a revered stand-up comedian who has delighted audiences across the country for over two decades with his trademark off-the-cuff performance style. On this, his third album, Jimmy showcases his famed crowd work skills in a deliriously loose and infectiously silly set recorded live at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, Ohio. By weaving stories from his life through the back-and-forth banter with those in attendance, Jimmy forms a special bond with his audience, creating a unique comedy experience that is truly inimitable. SPREZZATURA captures the magic of seeing Jimmy Pardo live and invites listeners to get swept up in the fun.
