The debut album from comedian and writer Aaron Karo will be released as a digital download from Comedy Central Records next Tuesday, December 9. Here's what you need to know:
Recorded at the Comedy Connection in Faneuil Hall, MA, ‚ÄúJust Go Talk To Her‚Äù begins in a peculiar fashion – New York native Aaron Karo professes his love for the Yankees and Giants until the rabid Boston crowd showers him with boos. Those boos quickly turn to raucous cheers as Karo‚Äôs trademark brand of storytelling – fast-paced personal anecdotes about drinking, dating, and debauchery – win over even the most hardened Red Sox fans.
Karo is best known for his ‚ÄúRuminations‚Äù email column, which began as a forward sent from his college dorm room and spawned a worldwide following over the next decade. But while his prowess on the page, both in his column and the subsequent series of bestselling books he authored is well-documented, ‚ÄúJust Go Talk to Her‚Äù is the first album to capture the phenomenon of Karo‚Äôs live show as well. Whether he‚Äôs divulging the secrets that all guys keep from their girlfriends or picking apart the foibles of married couples, Karo excels at taking universal experiences and turning them on their head.
