For his album debut, Joe Mande is releasing a new kind of comedy album, a mixtape of sorts entitled Bitchface. If the name alone is not enough to entice you, here’s the rundown. Not limited to stand-up, the mixtape will also feature voicemail messages from his Parks & Recreation boss Amy Poehler and The RZA, and guest appearances by Fabolous, NBA star Roy Hibbert, Aziz Ansari, Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate and more. Intermixed in the hour’s worth of stand-up on the album are mid-joke voiceovers from Mande himself, and a few Top 40 radio-esque effects. Definitely not your typical comedy album, that’s for sure.
In addition, Mande will be promoting his mixtape on a 13 city tour, including six dates with Aziz Ansari and the Moontower Comedy Festival.
