NEW YORK, December 14, 2011 – Comedy and music join together in the new digital album “Manhood” from Joberg & Gurner released on COMEDY CENTRAL Records On December 13.
“Manhood” is the latest offering from comedy music act Joberg & Gurner, full of cleverly irreverent material that even their mothers won’t endorse. It is a re-release of their now-classic 2010 album that also includes a brand new bonus holiday song about an unlikely lover of Christmas. The album features full band recordings of their songs, ranging in style from Latin to Metal, R&B to Vaudeville, and much more. Guest musicians include Andrew Totolos (The Giraffes) on drums, and Steve Lavner (“Beauty & the Beast”) on keyboards.
David Josefsberg and Jeff Gurner are two recovering Broadway performers who now find themselves nurturing their severe case of arrested development by performing their off-color brand of original music/stand-up comedy. Josefsberg (“The Wedding Singer,” “Les Miz,” “Altar Boyz”) is a seasoned Broadway musical theater vet and Drama League nominated actor. He was seen as “The Fonz” on NBC’s “The Mork and Mindy Story.” Gurner (“The Lion King,” “Five Course Love”) is an award- winning voice-over artist and actor who is also an accomplished guitar/bass player and songwriter. For the past four years, Joberg has toured with Stephen Lynch (“The Wedding Singer”), performing Joberg & Gurner songs nightly all over the United States and Europe.
