There’s a new folk hero in town, not the hero we deserve but the one we desperately need. Comedian, marketing genius, musician Nick Thune‘s first hour special is now available in digital audio form.
Nick Thune: Folk Hero was taped live at The Bell House in Brooklyn last summer and premiered exclusively on Netflix on February 18th. Today comedy fans can download and carry this gem around with them in their pockets, or have it serve as the soundtrack to a relaxing evening drive. And I recommend that you do.
Thune’s soft guitar riffs serenade a series of clever and absurd short jokes at the top half of the album. The comedian has a penchant for flipping common sayings on their head with hilarious results.
“Enough is enough… it’s the same word.”
Definitely not your typical album, Thune puts a very refreshing and creative spin on his comedy with the inclusion of original songs, dramatic readings of letters, and compelling storytelling. His act is delightfully unpredictable, and his soothing voice and calm demeanor keeps you on your toes the whole way through.
Is there anything more heroic than providing the world with laughter? No, I really don’t think you can argue there is… like at all. No, nothing. This is fact, so be your own hero and purchase this album today.
Nick Thune: Folk Hero is available for digital download now at iTunes and Amazon, and possibly one CD available at a diner in rural Oregon.
