My new comedy and music album FLAW FEST is available for pre-order now on Bandcamp and will “drop” or “fall down” or “scrape its knee” on Tuesday, November 5th!
“I am glad that Joseph Scrimshaw has the power of thought and audible speech, or else this very funny album would not exist.”
ALBUM RELEASES TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5th ON:
(physical and digital)
and streaming on
FLAW FEST is a live comedy album full of fun comedy jokes about horrible human flaws PLUS a bonus album of awesome songs inspired by the comedy show.
The comedy album details my horrible flaws: a sloth driven obsession to play bad James Bond video games, a stubborn need to fight with large animals, the idiocy to drink something called a Watermelon Shooter, the hubris to write a rock n’ roll song about a helium balloon, and much more. Plus a cameo by Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy of RiffTrax!
The music album features new songs by Paul & Storm, Molly Lewis, Bill Corbett, The Sevateem, John Roderick, John Munson, The Doubleclicks, Kevin Murphy, Mike Phirman, The Dregs, and Joseph himself.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF FLAW FEST
I first did the show in February of 2013 on Jonathan Coulton’s JoCoCruiseCrazy.
The show went well so I decided to use Kickstarter to raise funds to record the show for a comedy album. The show deals with themes of music and I have a lot of amazing musician friends. So I asked a bunch of them to write an album of songs inspired by the show. So basically, it will be a comedy album with its own soundtrack. To my knowledge, no one has ever done that before.
The Kickstarter was also a success due to what I metaphorically described on this blog as Unicorns and Cocaine. You can read up on the actual project here!
The comedy show was recorded live at the Bryant Lake Bowl Cabaret Theater in Minneapolis in late September.
Now that the album is out in the world, we’re accepting submissions for your very own flaw songs!
Thanks for all your support!
Your flawed friend,
