Podcast: The quiet boom in Madison-recorded stand-up albums
A look at some of the best work national comedians have recorded recently in Madison.
Madison, and in particular the Comedy Club On State, has quietly become something of a destination for standup comedians looking to record their latest album. This month saw both the release of John Roy’s album Everything’s Burning on A Special Thing Records, and the recording of Josh Johnson’s upcoming album for Comedy Central, so we thought we’d take a look at a few of the notable albums recorded in the Capitol’s shadow.
This isn’t a complete overview, but a look at some of the strongest recordings comedians have made in Madison of late, including work from Jenny Zigrino, Brooks Wheelan, Wyatt Cenac, and Shane Mauss. Give it a listen below.
