Out today on CD and iTunes, the debut album from the ineffable Guy Branum. One of our best to date.

"Throughout Effable, Branum’s forceful, authoritative comic persona carries within it a core of vulnerability" - A.V. Club

"His brilliant writing and his commanding stage presence make Guy simply unforgettable." - The Comedy Bureau

“Subtlety isn’t part of the equation for Guy Branum. Formerly a writer and panelist on Chelsea Lately, Branum is a forceful stand-up with a sharp, unapologetically defiant attitude.” - Vulture’s 50 Comedians You Should Know in 2015

"He’s a hilarious, larger-than-life gay man who tweets passionately about pop culture, political issues and somewhat notably, #LookingHBO. He also went to law school, so he’s smart and funny (the best combination)." - Buzzfeed

100% guaranteed to be your favorite record of all time. We are thrilled to unleash this beast. Hampton Yount's formidable follow-up to 2009's "Unbearable." Recorded live at the NerdMelt Showroom in Los Angeles, Hampton delivers an unabashedly enthusiastic take on current events, sexuality, depression and the South. Hampton’s high energy and vibrant laughter are absolutely infectious, and his German accent is beyond reproach. A solid hour of edgy and intelligent silliness. Buy it on CD or iTunes!

Andrés' is available on a limited edition vinyl LP that comes with a deluxe digital download for over 2 hours (!) of content. Bob's features an opening set by up-and-comer Brandon Wardell. Two A+ albums from two absolute comedy geniuses. Please enjoy.
