Sam Evans is indeed a sweet baby boy, and his debut album Sweet Baby Boy, out May 29 on Blonde Medicine is very very funny. Evans is a well-loved staple in the New York and Cincinnati stand-up scenes who has been performing for a decade. Asked why now was the time to release his debut comedy album, Sam replies:
"(I) really felt good about the body of material I was touring with. I think sometimes you can fall out of love with a joke if you've been telling it for a while, and I just wanted to record while the material still felt new and exciting to me. I like stand-up records that really recreate the feeling you get when you're at the performance, and I think we succeeded in doing that."
Indeed he has. Sweet Baby Boy was recorded in October 2019 in front of an enthusiastic audience at Go Bananas in Cincinnati. Now more than ever hearing excellent comedy captured live sure hits the spot. On Sweet Baby Boy, Sam lampoons modern relationships, family, jobs, bad tattoos, and always comes back around to dogs. Sam loves dogs. What a sweet baby boy!
Sweet Baby Boy will be released on May 29. It is available for pre-order here: https://music.apple.com/us/album/sweet-baby-boy/1507325172
