ICE CREAM vs. EVERYTHING
A NEW COMEDY ALBUM OUT FRIDAY, AUGUST 11
ON BLONDE MEDICINE
Advance album stream available by request
Pre-order available beginning 7/28, includes instant gratification track
Blonde Medicine and Paul Morrissey are pleased to announce the Friday, August 11 release of Ice Cream vs. Everything, a new full-length comedy album available everywhere streaming audio is enjoyed. On Ice Cream vs. Everything, Paul Morrissey shares stories of growing up in upstate New York in front of a packed audience in Jamestown, NY (who of course protest that Jamestown is actually western New York). He covers themes including foods he’s never eaten, comedy stemming from neuroses, things he thinks about when he cannot sleep, material about his former job as a TV Sports Anchor, and jokes about experiences that have happened during the last ten years of touring all 50 states as well as 18 countries.
Paul’s goal as a kid was to guest on The Late Show with David Letterman. He actually skipped high school to see a taping:
“Me and my friend Willie drove 3 hours to NYC to see a taping, and it blew my mind. I just wanted to be a part of Dave’s fun world. I didn’t know if I could be an usher at the theater or a camera guy, but I just knew I wanted to be a part of it. To be on that show was the only goal I ever had in comedy and was as great as I thought it was going to be.”
Paul achieved his dream when he was one of the final comedians to debut on “Letterman” while promoting his last album Paul Morrissey’s Back.
His new album Ice Cream vs. Everything proudly represents his career since then. Says Paul:
“I’m fascinated by human behavior, I love to be a fly-on-the-wall, to travel to strange places, to watch how people behave and do things. The world can be a heavy place, and my comedy hopefully is where people forget about problems and laugh at the silly things my weird brain comes up with.”
This is Paul’s best material, recorded live in the historic Tropicana Room in the Lucille Ball Museum at the National Comedy Center. The venue is close enough to where Paul grew up that a few people surprised him from his hometown - some of the stories and jokes featured on Ice Cream vs. Everything are about people that were actually in the room!
