Liz Barrett, 'Gettin' By'
A NEW COMEDY ALBUM OUT FRIDAY, JULY 21 ON PINCH RECORDS
*Advance album stream available by request*
Pinch Records is pleased to announce the Friday, July 21 release of Gettin’ By, the debut full-length comedy album from NYC-based fan-favorite Liz Barrett, who’s work was hailed by Time Out New York as a "signature brand of dark, batty stand-up."
Born in New Jersey, Liz was raised in a household with a career military father so she moved all around until settling in NYC 20 years ago. She started comedy over a decade ago when, during a painful period where she was fired while also battling infertility, family and friends suggested she take a comedy class. Liz followed their advice, promptly fell in love with stand-up, and the rest is history. Barrett is also a lawyer who works part-time as a hearing officer/judge for NYC where she “hears complaints against taxi drivers”. In her comedy, she trains this experience and healthy skepticism on the world outside the courtroom with hilarious results!
In a world that demands healthy salads, hummus at parties, and motivational life brands, Liz Barrett is "Gettin' By." With a unique look at everyday life, Liz Barrett puts a positively cynical and hilarious spin on topics such as, Reality TV, newlyweds, being an "o.k" housewife, and even weird strip clubs. Finding humor by celebrating a world of being average, this comedy album is anything but. Liz's dry delivery and dark sense of humor provides the perfect soundtrack to anyone just "gettin by" in this thing called life.
