NEW YORK, June 29, 2009 – Comedian Todd Glass comes to COMEDY CENTRAL Records with his new full length, digital-only album, “Thin Pig,” released on July 7.
Since his precocious start at age 16, Glass has developed into a polished performer with a bent for inventive material that often mocks the conventions of stand-up. Recorded at the Tempe, AZ, Improv, “Thin Pig” is almost an hour of Glass’ fantastic observations and stories.
Glass, a Philadelphia native, has performed with numerous acts including Tenacious D, earning high praise from Jack Black himself: “I covet his ****ing brain!” Glass’ many television appearances include performances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” “Showbiz Show with David Spade,” “Last Comic Standing 2” and “Last Comic Standing 3: Battle of the Best,” “Mr. Show,” “COMEDY CENTRAL Presents” and “The Sarah Silverman Show.” Glass is currently on the road performing nationally with comedian/actor David Spade and made his move to the big screen, starring in indie films “Save the Mavericks” and “Cook Off!” Glass is working on his next show, “Todd Glass Saves America.” This passion-driven show will follow Glass as he travels America searching for wrongs and injustice in everything from social issues to cell phone etiquette.
Previously released recordings by COMEDY CENTRAL Records include: Dane Cook’s “ISolated INcident,” Cook’s platinum-selling “Harmful If Swallowed” and double-platinum “Retaliation,” Mitch Hedberg’s “Do You Believe in Gosh,” Grammy Award-winning, “Lewis Black: The Carnegie Hall Performance,” Grammy Award nominees’ Steven Wright’s “I Still Have A Pony” and George Lopez’s “American’s Mexican,” Joe Rogan’s “Shiny Happy Jihad”, Christopher Titus’s “5th Annual End Of The World Tour,” Norm MacDonald’s “Ridiculous,” Demetri Martin’s “These Are Jokes,” “Jim Gaffigan: Beyond The Pale,” Mike Birbiglia’s “My Secret Public Journal Live,” D.L.
