From Time Out New York:
Who he is
A seasoned stand-up, Comedy Central staple and total pro; an unashamedly white-bread, self-described “pathologically positive” Norman Rockwell–kid–look-alike.
What he does
Tours, records albums and specials, yet still focuses on what hasn’t earned him money, i.e., storytelling; makes mountains out of molehills, turning small memories from his Catholic Massachusetts childhood into beautifully crafted tales.
Why we love him
His stories are both sidesplitting and touching, deliciously specific and universally true. He’s the only conservative Republican comedian who’s actually funny. He was in an a cappella group—and isn’t ashamed.
