Comedian, author, drinker, ruminator extraordinaire Aaron Karo will bring his brand of post-grad, growing manboy humor to the small screen with his own Comedy Central special that will air on Friday, November 19th with a digital-only download of the album’s audio coming just afterward.
Dear friends, fans, and family: after thirteen years of ruminating and eight years of performing, I’m finally getting a shot at the big time. I’m thrilled to announce that on Friday, November 19th, at 11pm, Comedy Central will premiere AARON KARO: THE REST IS HISTORY – my first one-hour stand-up special!
Karo has been on the scene for a while now, cultivating a following first through a chain of emails, documenting his thoughts, graduating to a full-fledged website, Ruminations where he and his friends can share their thoughts on life. He has a bi-weekly column where he updates fans about his trials and tribulations about growing up, watching friends grow up, and his constant battle against the inevitable conclusion of adulthood. For his special he’s also set up TheRestIsHistory.com where fans can visit for updates.
Aaron Karo hates when bridesmaids conclude their speeches about how the bride and groom met with the tired phrase “and the rest is history.” His first one-hour Comedy Central special kicks off with this complaint and then runs the gamut from drunken friends who always start fights, to couples who take pictures of their feet while on vacation, to the singles table at weddings being filled with people in relationships. In this follow-up to his acclaimed album Just Go Talk to Her, the comedian and author who shot to fame with his viral Ruminations email column unleashes a series of side-splitting anecdotes about being thirty and unattached that keep the Boston crowd roaring with delight. True to form, Karo ends his performance by revisiting those pesky bridesmaids in a deft and hilarious finale.
He was also so kind as to let us see the first minutes of his special.
