About Tougher Than A Honey Bee:
Blonde Medicine is excited to announce the upcoming comedy album from Maggie Faris, Tougher Than A Honey Bee, due out November 25th, available everywhere comedy is streamed and sold.
“I have been doing stand-up for over 20 years,” says Maggie Faris. “But I have always struggled to talk about my own stories and my own issues.” This third stand-up album from Maggie Faris was recorded in front of sold out crowds at Sisyphus Brewing in Minneapolis.
The album showcases Maggie’s growth as a comedian. She uses her signature silly style to tell hilarious stories about being a butch lesbian and a snow plow driver for the Department of Transporation. Her love of the Minnesota State Fair is on full display, and she caps the album with a live rendition of her ultra-catchy original song “The Great MN Get Together”.
The pre-order is available now. The album drops everywhere comedy is streamed or sold on Friday, November 25.
