Ted Alexandro's SENIOR CLASS OF EARTH Special Out 10/4 from All Things Comedy - Album Out 10/5 f
Filmed at the Comedy Cellar's iconic Village Underground in New York, Senior Class of Earth is Ted Alexandro's third hour-long comedy special (and/or comedy album), following As Much As You Want and I Did It. Senior Class of Earth effortlessly blends equal parts social commentary - surveying a world increasingly on the brink - with a healthy dose of personal reflections on subjects like being engaged to be married and the particular duties of a man in today’s world - for example, making sure all electronic devices remain charged. It's often said that "the personal is political," and Ted's new special exemplifies that ideal while keeping us all laughing. The special will be available from All Things Comedy on October 4th, available to purchase worldwide atwww.atcspecials.com and though Vimeo On Demand. The album version will be released by 800 Pound Gorilla Records on October 5th.
