NICK THUNE’S “FOLK HERO” DIGITAL ALBUM RELEASED ON TUESDAY, MARCH 11 BY COMEDY CENTRAL RECORDS

NEW YORK, March 4, 2014 – Nick Thune’s digital comedy album “Folk Hero” will be released by Comedy Central Records on March 11, and will be available on iTunes, Amazon and all streaming services.  It is currently available for pre-order on iTunes.

Thune’s absurdist view and deadpan wit, combined with the soothing lull of his guitar, have distinguished his unique style of comedy.  In his second stand-up album, he regales the audience of Brooklyn’s Bell Theatre with a collection of hilarious stories about his childhood, his past romantic relationships and his experience with a burning building.

Thune has appeared on “The Tonight Show,” “Conan,” “The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon” Comedy Central’s “@midnight,” and in an episode of “Comedy Central Presents.”  His debut album, “Thick Noon,” was released on Comedy Central Records in 2010 and was included in Amazon’s “Best of 2010 Comedy Albums.”  Thune’s film credits include Mike Judge’s “Extract,” “Highway 61 Re: Revisited,” “Spring Breakdown” and “Unaccompanied Minors.”  He has created two web series for Comedy Central: “iThunes” and “NicksBigShow.com,” and can next be seen in “Bad Johnson” opposite Cam Gigandet and Jamie Chung.  Thune is currently touring the country, changing lives one joke at a time.

Comedy Central Records’ previously released recordings include: Gabriel Iglesias “Aloha Fluffy,” “Owen Benjamin: High Five Til It Hurts,” Aziz Ansari’s “Dangerously Delicious,” Jim Gaffigan’s “Mr. Universe,” George Lopez’ “It’s Not Me, It’s You,” Reggie Watts’ “A Live At Central Park,” Hannibal Buress’ “Animal Furnace,” John Mulaney’s “New in Town,” Patton Oswalt’s “Finest Hour,” Lewis Black’s “The Prophet,” Louis C.K.’s “Hilarious,” Bo Burnham’s “WORDS, WORDS, WORDS,” Mitch Hedberg’s “Do You Believe in Gosh?,” Dane Cook’s platinum-selling “Harmful If Swallowed” and double-platinum “Retaliation,” and the Grammy® Award-winning “Lewis Black: The Carnegie Hall Performance.”
