Pack A Lunch
Blonde Medicine is pleased to announce the Friday, May 5 release of Pack a Lunch, the sophomore comedy full-length from longtime comedian and perennial fan-favorite Dave Stone! Pack a Lunch is the audio accompaniment to Stone’s debut stand-up special of the same name, out the same day on his YouTube channel: youtube.com/@davestonecomedy.
Pack a Lunch is mostly autobiographical with zero crowd work or politics. Although Los Angeles-based for over a decade, Stone is originally from North Georgia. He recounts growing up in the deep south, his introduction to married life, a love of both Bigfoot and baseball, and his experiences as a cop!
Stone started comedy in Atlanta sixteen years ago at age 29 following several near-death experiences stemming from his previous career as an Atlanta police officer. This work involved both uniform patrol and undercover plain-clothes operations which yielded endless cop stories including car chases, high-speed pursuit of a bathroom, and retrieval of a human head!
These stories are something Stone has kept hidden for his entire comedy career, reluctant to share them for fear of alienating his audience. After 16 years however, it is finally time to tell some of them. In the current political and social climate, Stone was eager to veer away from divisiveness and simply tell some dumb stories about a middle-aged goober trying to figure things out!
