Gen X Man, the latest album from comedian Erik Myers, is a laugh riot that feels like an actual riot. Erik is a foul-mouthed, whirling buzzsaw of brilliant observational comedy. He runs hotter and cuts deeper than a flaming house filled with razor blades. Cleared-eyed rage, true-to-life grievances, and commonplace annoyances, Gen X Man blasts with hilarious, fiery, righteous anger.
Erik Myers’ ire is noteworthy. His social commentary avoids the trappings of trendy, hot-button topics. Erik focuses his flurries to personal punching bags, unleashing funny-as-hell fury against cheap hotels, fast food, and the internet. The jokes are smart, sharp, compact, relatable, loud. He speaks volumes with volume. Unrelentingly funny, Erik Myers revs up the hysterics until you’re convinced you’ll never stop laughing.
