NICK FLANAGAN: I’m Here All Weak: CD

Mar 03, 2011

Most readers might know Nick Flanagan as the front man of Brutal Knights, Canada’s ‘80s hardcore throwback with a goofy sense of humor, so it’s not a huge stretch that he also ventures into stand up comedy. This was my first exposure to his material, and while I hadn’t heard good things, I still enjoyed it. He goes for a Neil Hamburger approach, with a very clear, self-deprecating attitude, both in material and the tone of the delivery. But even amongst all the groaner moments, it’s easy to miss some really great lines, for example why life is like diarrhea. If you’re a pretty big nerd, comedy or otherwise, you could dig this.
