Raanan Hershberg @ SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show (The East Room) 8/31/2014

Raanan Hershberg: Crying Behind 3D Glasses at SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show 8/31/2014

Crying Behind 3D Glasses: When Raanan Hershberg was 8 years old he saw Jurassic Park in theaters, and it was the greatest experience of his life. So twenty years later, when Jurassic Park 3D came out, he was very eager to relive that experience; in fact, he was desperate to, because let’s just say, in those twenty years, his life had not advanced in a manner he could reflect on positively: He was broke, living at his parent’s house, and a girl he had been sleeping with was pregnant.. A dark and funny look on how the movies and books and T.V. you loved as a child don’t always hold up, no matter how much you desperately need them to.

Raanan Hershberg tours clubs and colleges all across the country, cutting his teeth in some of the top rooms in the nation. He was selected for this year’s Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, and was a finalist in the 2012 Funniest Person in Cincinnati Competition. Besides performing stand up, he has also written two one man shows (“Broke, High, and Horny” and “Crying Behind 3D Glasses”). He is also the host and founder of The Bard’s Town Theater Roasts and The Young, Dumb, and Full of Comedy Show- a bi-weekly showcase featuring some of the best young, working comedians in the Midwest.

Sean Parrott’s “Summertime (Featuring Swagnum P.I.)” video is the greatest thing on the Internet

Sean Parrott, July 2014

Sean Parrott, July 2014

Nashville-based comedian & musician Sean Parrott is so incredibly funny and talented and wonderful, it’s just ridiculous. His new album “THE DTH OVE LOF” is a perfect example of that. Also, the video for “Summertime (Featuring Swagnum P.I.)” is (without question) the greatest thing on the internet. Stop everything and watch the video right now:

Sean Parrott: THE DTH OVE LOF album cover

Sean Parrott: THE DTH OVE LOF album cover

THE DTH OVE LOF” is a fun and funny indie pop concept album about love, loss, and a battle to save the Earth! The album is available now on BandCamp, Spotify, iTunes and all of the other places, too. Buy it now OR, register to win a FREE copy of it right here! (Well, at the bottom of this post, actually.)

Parrott has previously released “Songs About Sad Stuff And Snacks” in December 2012, and several tracks throughout 2013, but this new album is more of a follow-up to his 2010 “Infinite Superdoom” release as “The Dead Dead.”

Parrot’s 2010 release – “The Dead Dead: Infinite Superdoom”

THE DTH OVE LOF” cover art (by Nashville-based comedian / artist Bryce Damuth) shares the same color scheme as The Dead Dead album and the same sword. Sean says he conceived the new album, “..as part of a continuing story. Infinite Superdoom is about two dudes kinda wandering and battling and THE DTH OVE LOF happens after (or before) that (they have a time machine.) I’m not really sure what happened in between…or what the next album will be about (maybe more time travel stuff?).”

Watching the video for “Summertime” feels like traveling back in time to the glory days of super fun music videos. Sean says Director David Shamban “was really into the doll idea and said it was going to be awesome so I let him go buckwild. And, based on the reactions, it seems to have turned out well.”

Shamban says, “Sean’s song pretty much takes the objectification of women to a new level and what better way to express that than with actual objects. It was a tough task envisioning a video for Sean’s heartfelt ballad of breast awareness. I didn’t want to be heavy handed with the message. I came up with the concept to show characters behaving very badly in a spring break type scenario through the medium of Barbie scale dolls. I think that was good choice considering Barbie dolls anatomy are totally fucked. My motto for the video was ‘Make sure your attention deficited inner 14 year old is happy with this.’ I wanted to make a video that a modern feminist could watch and say “Hey, that’s pretty disgusting, good job!” Seeing as my girlfriend doesn’t hate me after making this video, I must have done something right.”

Within one week of being posted on Sean Parrott’s YouTube channel, the video had over 5000 views. “I’m trying to figure out which song to make a video of next,” Sean says. “But most of the others aren’t as specifically jokey. The problem is trying to scrape money together to pay someone to make another video that looks good.”

Help fund more creativity from Mr. Parrott by buying “THE DTH OVE LOF” on BandCamp or iTunes. Broke? You can register to win a FREE cd from Sean right here. Before you do that, don’t forget to follow Sean Parrott on Facebook, Twitter & YouTube.
