ASPECIALTHING RECORDS RELEASES SEAN WHITE DEBUT LP ‘DEAD & GONE’ – HEAR TWO NEW ALBUM TRACKS

Sean White -Dead & Gone cover

 

ASPECIALTHING RECORDS announces the release of the debut comedy album ‘DEAD & GONE’ from Chicago comedian SEAN WHITE.  Sean’s brand of comedy showcased on this record stands as a unique testament to loss – the only subjects covered here are the passing of his immediate family and his subsequent divorce.  A champion of finding humor in dark times, Sean’s brutally honest style of thought-provoking material is perfectly showcased in morbid hilarity on his debut ‘Dead & Gone’.  In an early review, the Chicago Tribune calls the album “an essential rumination about loss” with “a point of view unique among comics”.

‘Dead & Gone’ is available via iTuneshttp://apple.co/1bmJS4V
and CD: http://bit.ly/1GMKexl

Originally from Alabama, Sean White was named one of Chicago’s top comics by Chicago Magazine “with jokes that look misery straight in the eye”.   He has also been hailed as “Fearless” by ComedyofChicago.com, and “starkly original” and “impressive and refreshing” by Creative Loafing.   He produces two Chicago comedy shows:  Stand Up Stand Up every Thursday at the Crocodile Lounge and BEEF every 2nd Thursday at the Hungry Brain.   Join Sean at a special ‘Dead & Gone’ album release show at Beat Kitchen on Tuesday, May 12.

KRISTINA WONG ANNOUNCES THE WORLD PREMIERE OF “THE WONG STREET JOURNAL” JUNE 17-21 AT Z BELOW, SAN FRANCISCO

Kristina Wong Portraits

“Politically charged art with unapologetic humor.”  – BITCH MAGAZINE

“With her punchy brand of humor, Kristina Wong takes aim at what most people don’t acknowledge.” – LA TIMES

 

Multi-talented comedian KRISTINA WONG announces the WORLD PREMIERE of her new show “THE WONG STREET JOURNAL” WEDNESDAY JUNE 17 – SUNDAY JUNE 21 at Z BELOW.   How did a not-so-white-savior from San Francisco become a Northern Uganda hip hop legend?  Watch this irreverent travelogue, one you’d never see on PBS, play out in an all-felt version of the New York Stock Exchange sewed by Wong herself.

Part plushy TED lecture, part amateur hip-hop extravaganza, and part travelogue, The Wong Street Journal breaks down the complexities of global poverty, privilege and economic theory using uneasy-to-read charts, live hashtag wars, and riveting slideshows from post-conflict Northern Uganda.  Wong tells the story of how she, as a not-so-white savior, became a hip-hop star in Northern Uganda.

San Francisco native Kristina Wong has been a guest on “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” Al Jazeera’s “The Stream” and Huffington Post Live.  She has  also been a commentator for American Public Media’s Marketplace, PBS, Jezebel, xoJane, Playgirl Magazine and featured in The New York Times “Off Color” series.  Kristina spent a month in Northern Uganda researching the show and recording a rap album called “Mzungu Price” with local rappers.

 


“THE WONG STREET JOURNAL” WORLD PREMIERE AT Z BELOW  (470 Florida)

MCQUEEN ANNOUNCES “GINGER CORVETTE” U.S. TOUR

 

MCQUEEN2 Hi Res

“Just brilliant”  – THOM YORKE, RADIOHEAD

“This show is mad funny! Dude’s doing something crazy original,
it’s going to be huge man!”  DAVE CHAPPELLE

 

Comedian/Producer MCQUEEN announces his “Ginger Corvette” U.S. Tour which kicks off tomorrow in NY.   MCQUEEN performed a TWO WEEK SOLD OUT RUN IN LONDON and now, for the first time ever, he is touring his highly original show through the U.S.  Incorporating improvisational voiceovers while recreating movie and television scene projections,  McQueen is a one-man show extraordinaire which BUZZFEED says is “like watching Jimmy Fallon and Reggie Watt’s love child bringing down the house!” 

 

While touring with RADIOHEAD one fateful night in Miami, McQueen impressed the band with an impersonation so fresh an idea was born. Co-created with Julian Gross from LIARS,  McQueen presents a fusion of music, comedy and video which parodies pop stars, movies and a variety of celebrities, creating  an incredibly unique new universe with every show.  We are stoked to welcome MCQUEEN to the RIGHT ON! family.  Y’all go see him and make him feel at home out there, k?  And stay tuned, more shows TBA.

GUY BRANUM ANNOUNCES NEW COMEDY ALBUM ‘EFFABLE’ AVAILABLE APRIL 14 ON ASPECIALTHING RECORDS

 

GUY BRANUM announces the release of his debut comedy album ‘EFFABLE’ out APRIL 14 on ASPECIALTHING RECORDS.  Recorded live at Nerdmelt Showroom, Guy delivers a hot set in every sense of the word.  Moving through a variety of topics with superb flow, Guy riffs about Canada as American fan fiction, LA vs NYC, apartment dogs, Red Lobster trickery, and he provides an excellent defense of his oft-questioned taste in music.

‘Effable’ is available for pre-order on iTunes  http://apple.co/19xqy4l
and CD http://bit.ly/1CbuiCA

Guy Branum is a writer and comedian best known for his recurring segment “No More Mr. Nice Gay” on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, serving as “Staff Homosexual” on Chelsea Lately and his performance as Natalie Portman’s sassy gay friend in No Strings Attached.  He’s also appeared on Last Comic Standing, Arsenio, on E!, MTV and he has also written for Punk’d, Another Period, Awkward., Billy on the Street and Fashion Police.

 

“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
