My first one-hour special, What I Should Have Said Was Nothing, originally aired on Comedy Central in 2008. The album version is called My Secret Public Journal Live!
They’re basically the same show with slightly different names. Comedy specials don’t really get reviewed much, but the album was called the “comedy album of the year” by Time Out New York and it was named as one the best comedy albums of the decade by The Onion AV Club.
It was the first time I experimented with storytelling on an album and I’m really proud of it. “Celebrity Golf” has been heard on “This American Life.”
