    Hamlet du Fromage

    Date: 06/08/2017

    I decided that a LIVE album would thoroughly capture the essence of how the comedic songs play out in front of people: their reactions, their wonder, their confusion (“What did he just say?”), and their utter WTF expressions. This recording also captures my complete idiocy in front of people when I am confronted by a microphone. It is raw, there are mistakes, there is heckling…it is a REAL and LIVE recording of the experience of my stuff. I hide nothing here, I censor nothing and if it offends for content or quality I do not apologize. I have interspersed a few non-comedic songs I have written if for no other reason than…I liked them, I’m proud of them, and I think they appeal in theme to many, the romantics and the heartbroken. And, BTW, NEVER break up with a songwriter.

    Why Hamlet du Fromage? Because I am the tortured Prince of All Things Cheesey. Duh.
