Craig Gass Worst CD Mini-s

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

COMEDIAN & ACTOR CRAIG GASS TO DEBUT WITH LIVE
COMEDY ALBUM & DVD ON APRIL 16, 2013

Features Cameo’s by Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell & Sean Kinney

(Los Angeles, CA) The outrageously funny Comedian/Actor and all-around “impressionist”, CRAIG GASS, announces the release of his debut live comedy album and DVD, The Worst Comedy Show Ever, on April 16, 2013 through Oglio Records. The release will coincide with GASS’ North American tour (dates TBA).

Filmed last summer at Dave’s of Milton Lounge and Comedy Club, a burned out but beloved hole-in-the-wall located (well) outside of Seattle, Washington, where scores of stand-up comics have gone for decades to test their material on the easily amused, and endlessly-forgiving, blue collar patrons. Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, has a hilarious cameo on the DVD, and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney, lend their fractured personalities to several news blackouts on the CD, hearkening back George Carlin’s post-‘60s hippy-dippy weatherman.

“The material on the DVD/CD was meticulously developed, night after night, in the near-empty rooms of shit-hole bars and comedy dives,” confesses GASS. “Now, it’s been turned into my dream come true! I am proud, ecstatic and terrified – but it’s a good kind of terror.”

The USO are also big fans of GASS and have asked the comedian to perform at a few select overseas bases of our Armed Forces. Craig will begin his tour in the Azores Islands of Portugal on March 11th before winding up on March 16th at the NATO Base in Madrid, Spain. He will make an appearance at the Panasonic Theatre in Toronto, Canada as he makes his way home to the U.S. Adding to his increasingly busy schedule, GASS will be making his Comedy Central debut on the upcoming season of the hit animated series, Brickleberry.

The pathway to impressions and stand-up comedy appears to be GASS’ destiny from the very beginning. Growing up in a family that was completely deaf, GASS learned to speak from watching TV. In 1993 GASS began performing stand-up comedy. His dead-on impressions caught the attention of two icons of the entertainment community, Howard Stern and George Carlin. Carlin soon took GASS under his wing, became his mentor, and acting roles materialized with regularity. In addition, GASS became a writer for Colin Quinn on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update”. GASS perfected his style with memorable characters on such TV shows as Sex and the City, King of Queens, Law & Order and Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels, and most recently has been doing voice over work on the shows Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show. As the industry continued to embrace his comedic style, GASS’ love for all things hard rock, led to his being honored with exclusive requests to open for Metallica, Alice in Chains and KISS.

As a regular guest on The Howard Stern show, GASS provides countless, riveting stories from the road, his endless encounters with Hollywood elite and life at its most basic reality. His seamless impressions of Al Pacino, Lars Ulrich, Sam Kinison, Adam Sandler, Tracy Morgan, Gene Simmons, Gilbert Gottfried, Christopher Walken, Owen Wilson and dozens more, accompanied by his machine gun-style delivery and fall-down-laughing storytelling, have already captivated audiences around the world.

Oglio Records is Oglio is celebrating its 20th anniversary as an independent label specializing in the fun and unusual. Oglio has released and reissued recordings from a diverse group of talent including comedians George Lopez, Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling (of Howard Stern Show fame) and Rob Schneider, as well as musical talent including Brian Wilson, Cyndi Lauper, Parry Gripp, Nerf Herder, BigBang, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Beatallica.

Congratulations to Andy Dick for being featured on the hit ABC show, Dancing With The Stars.

This song "Ballad of Andy" about Andy Dick is written and performed by the great Mark Foster from the band Foster The People. Read the lyrics as the video plays. It is a terrific song.

J CHRIS NEWBERG BIO

J. Chris Newberg's refreshingly smart and edgy humor, delivered with a streetwise sense of philosophic cool, has propelled the guitarist/songwriter-cum-comedian to the forefront of the National comedy scene. While critics have been singing his praises in the press, audience members are offering true testimonial to Newberg's talent, roaring with laughter and clamoring for more of this hip and authentic new personality. Newberg's standup comedy cleverly combines his hilarious and off-beat observations on life with original, acoustic guitar songs and infectious melodies. Picture Bob Dylan and his six-string with Dennis Miller's incisive, cerebral wit. Well, not quite Dennis Miller, but definitely the occasional big word. Got it? Good, now you can begin to glimpse the unique, side-splitting talent that is J. Chris Newberg.

Newberg has spent much of adult life on the road. Whether it was performing in a bar just shy of capacity (See: Empty) or to his eventual gathering and collecting members of The Chris Army, his loyal fans. This initially began while he was touring and performing with the likes of the Counting Crows, Oasis, and John Mellencamp, but has since grown much larger through his undeniable Viral Video following. With his friends at comedy.com, J Chris has written and produced several short humorous videos that have received well over 7 million views.

See for yourself. Just go to Youtube.com/jchrisnewberg, Break.com, Funnyordie.com, collegehumor.com, myspace.com/jchrisnewberg, jchrisnewberg.com or comedy.com and search his name. Make sure that you have some time, because there is a lot of stuff on there.
Newberg has been seen on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, The Tonight Show, The History Channel, Fox Sports and countless national commercials and voice over spots.

Check your local listings because if he's not in your town this week, I am sure it's only a matter of time before he will be. He is a graduate of the Second City and alumni of the famed Motor City Improv. He is a Pisces and a firm believer that everything is a word that can usually describe most things. Other words he uses at will: Stuff, Planet, Evolution, Frost, Shoulders, Poison, Rafting, and the list goes on and on.

A biography is supposed to give you a glimpse of what J Chris Newberg is all about. Well, I have just told you, so why don't you make a little effort to laugh on your own at him. Get to the internet and see what everyone is talking about. If you don't have a computer, than get to satellite radio Sirius or XM, it won't look the same, but you will still hear the funny. If you don't know what computers or cable radio are, well then I have a really cool sponge to sell you.
