CHRIS MARTIN

ABOVE GROUND COMEDIAN

 

A NEW COMEDY ALBUM OUT FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23 

ON BLONDE MEDICINE


 

PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE JANUARY 25

Advance streaming link available by request

 

Blonde Medicine and Chris Martin are pleased to announce the Friday, February 23, 2024 release of Martin’s sophomore full-length comedy album Above Ground Comedian, available everywhere streaming audio is enjoyed. It has been just about two years since the release of his debut album All Over the Place, and since then the U.K.-bred Martin has been observing and cataloging hilarious stories about the shortcomings of veganism, surviving marriage and long trips to Vegas, and living in Los Angeles as a Brit: “I have a small dog and I’m vegan so I’ve really assimilated to the culture. I just need some Botox to complete my hat trick of the ‘most-LA’ stereotypes”.

 

Martin deftly mines his cultural assimilation, how his parents inform his own recent foray into parenthood, and of course ... his dog’s butt. A stand-up veteran of nearly two decades, Martin was mesmerized as a teen by Eddie Murphy’s Raw. “I wanted to be able to do that. I wish I could pull off the shiny purple tight-outfit but sadly my legs are too skinny to make it work.

 

Martin leaned on these years of experience when, the night before recording Above Ground Comedian, he performed a warm-up show in Baltimore that he purports to be his worst show in ten years. A late-show at a venue that never does late-shows, a blind-drunk audience… He says:

 

When I was newer as a comic I would have been annoyed, but the gig was so unplayable I just started laughing on stage at how bad it was. I knew at the very least my album recording would be better than that!

 

We’re happy to report that the taping was fabulous, and the proof is Above Ground Comedian
