Sarah Tollemache is a quintessential, modern New York woman – filled with angst and flippantly living in fear. She gives equal weight to the struggles of eating avocados at their peak as she does her worry about being murdered, and it’s in her dismissal that she finds her comic power.
Recorded at the New York Comedy Club on Sunday, March 8 just before the country went into quarantine, the album is currently streaming in full exclusively on Pandora. Voluptuous Boy features cuts such as “Movies,” turning the tables on Marie Kondo to make the most American show ever. “I thought it was funny that an Asian woman was coming over to US households and making them throw away their stuff so I thought it would be funny and flip that scenario,” says Tollemache. “What would an American woman make an Asian woman do? Buy more crap!”
“Eating Ass” tackles this once-taboo subject that has swept through the stand-up world like wildfire and Sarah’s hot take on it is a breath of fresh air… so to speak. “It came about because my comic friend actually told me that he thinks he should stop eating ass– like it’s a problem for him and his family… which is a funny way of expressing that concern. Also, I don’t know why but 2019 was the year of eating ass for some reason so I wanted to make a joke about it.”
