    Review: Gary Gulman “No Can Defend”

    Stand up and pay attention because Gary Gulman is about to break it down. No Can Defend is the comedian’s second release, first for Comedy Central Records and from the start; the comedian sets the tone – slightly neurotic, cautious but damn is it funny.

Whether his Jewish upbringing (“they’ve found themselves in a pickle or two”) or his desire to visit 8th grade Gary and correct his views on the importance of typing; he’s perfectly in touch with his neuroses and he’s become a great comedian because of it.
