Today I’m releasing my second stand-up album, ‘Dreamboat’. It’s a mixture of a bunch of different bits of material that I’ve been doing for the last couple of years. It’s not exactly the same as my festival show this year, even though it has the same name. I did that deliberately to confuse you.
It was recorded in Perth at the start of November to a very enthusiastic room full of punters who, quite honestly, were just waiting for us to do our live podcast. If you were there, I really appreciate you being such a great crowd.
There’s a couple of ways you can get it. I’ll do my best to explain them all:
I figured it was worth having on iTunes because that’s where a lot of people get our podcast from, so it makes sense to have it in the same place. Do people even like iTunes? I don’t know. What I do know is, I get less money from you purchasing it from iTunes than I do if you buy it through one of the other options. That being said, iTunes has charts and stuff so if enough people buy it, I might end up with more exposure, and more people might find it. Which is, I suppose, a fair trade-off. So, that’s how I feel about that.
I get a bigger cut of the sales through Bandcamp, so that’s pretty chill. You also get to choose the format and quality and all that stuff, which some people are into. Also, if you’re feeling generous and would like to pay more money for the album, that is an option that is available to you. If you decide to take that option: thank you very, very, very much!
I’m going to get some of these printed up as physical CD’s, but not until the start of next year. You can pre-order the physical copy now (also good for me to have an idea of demand to ensure that I don’t get too many of the damn things made) and you’ll get an immediate digital download of the album to tide you over. PLUS for all pre-orders I’ll throw some extra stuff in the package – I’ll do you some drawings and maybe put some of my trash in the parcel if I’m too lazy to go to the bin that day.
ALSO, it’s automatically going up on Google Play, Amazon and a whole bunch of other things, some of which I had literally never heard of until about three minutes ago. I don’t know how all those other things work. If you do, then I assume you’ll be able to figure out.
Also, I should mention that this album was finded by Punchline. They have tonnes of great comedy DVD’s from a heap of huge comedians, so when you’re done with this, head over there and check them out: punchline.com.au
Okay, so there it all is. Take your pick and enjoy my goofy stories. Thanks a million for purchasing it. If you’re not purchasing it: go to hell.
