Marc Maron Thinky Pain on vinyl
Diehard comedy fans have more than likely experience the special that is Marc Maron’s Thinky Pain due to its premiere on Netflix late last year and DVD release at the top of the year. However, what makes this release so incredibly great is that it’s getting a limited release on 180-gram double vinyl. Maron, being a huge music/vinyl fan (a subject he often discusses on his podcast and stand-up must be pretty giddy about the idea of a proper comedy album release on vinyl like all the comedy legends before him. We’ve seen a cool resurgence of comedy albums on vinyl, riding the trend of the resurgence of vinyl while a the same time paying homage to the past.
Steve Byrne Champion
Steve Byrne has moved into a bigger limelight since the premiere of his TBS show Sullivan & Son, a semi-autobiographical sitcom based on his life, that not only stars Byrne but his comedy friends Owen Benjamin, Roy Wood Jr., and Ahmed Ahmed. However, Byrne got his start in stand-up, killer stand-up. It’s been 4 years since his last comedy special, The Byrne Identity and he’s back with Champion, where he takes aim at everything from growing up with an Asian mother, politics, stereotypes, and the business of being married.
