My Summer Lair Chapter #101: Would You Go To A Christmas Party With Carly Rae Jepsen and Theory of a Deadman?

Stand up comic Harris Anderson released his comedy album Above and Beyond on 604 Records the same label as Carly Rae Jepsen and Theory of a Deadman; toss in Carly’s BFF Tom Hanks and you got a classic jam.

Above and Beyond is a classic comedy album showcasing Harris’ stand up bits (my favourite is the Stephen Hawking track!) covering a variety of topics that echo the conversation I had with him: movies, books and all manner of popular pop culture like horror.

Not chess though…he confesses he likes to play chess on the road so it remains to be seen if he can work in a solid chess bit or two into his act.

The lead single from Above and Beyond is Hometown a parody slightly mocking of those classic Bruce Springstreen tunes…here’s the video as with every joke watch to the end for the punchline:

My interview was the first time he was performing outside British Columbia so hopefully he comes back real soon.
