Mike Phirman is a talented and kind artist releasing music in the style of comedy. Essentially he writes music with a humorous twist. He very recently released his first solo record titled The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1). Mike Phirman is also known for his work with the music comedy duo Hard ‘N’ Phrim with G4 personality and genuine funny guy Chris Hardwick. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mike early earlier this month. You can find that here. It was a true pleasure to get to talk to him.
The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1) is some of the most fun you can have on a disc. Not only will it make you laugh, but it’s beautifully mixed and performed. The music is equally as amazing as the comedy on this record. Mike also has a little help from his friend “Weird Al” Yankovic on the song Street Meat which is an ode to street meat vendors and the wonders amongst them. If I had to pick one favorite song off the record it would easily be Sketchy Dudes. This song is a three part piece that is just awesome. It not only jumps to different gags involving sketchy folks you see in public but it also changes stylistically as well and it has a Sketchy Dude chorus!
This album floors me for many reasons but the main one is it’s all done by Mike. Written, performed, recorded, produced, and distributed by him. It’s truly a brilliant piece of work and you should definitley check it out. You can find his album here. You can also find Mr. Phirman on Twitter and Facebook. If you happen to be in the L.A., California are check him out on July 10th at Meltdown Comics and July 11th at the UCB Theater. Mike Phirman is definitley a one of a kind artist in style and delivery of his work and is well worth the listen. I leave you with a little something wonderful I found on his facebook page
