DEREK SHEEN’S TINY IDIOT FROM STAND UP! RECORDS OUT NOW!
This Cuddly Mess of Insecurities Who Has Toured With Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Janeane Garofalo and Rory Scovel Wants to Tell You About the Unctuous Hipster Butcher Shop and Much More
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, CA (WEDNESDAY MAY 18, 2016) – Stand Up! Records (www.standuprecords.com) announced today that Tiny Idiot from comedian Derek Sheen (http://derektime.com) is out now.
But just who is Derek Sheen? Well….let’s start with this: he’s toured with Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Janeane Garofalo and Rory Scovel. Pretty good company, wouldn’t you say? He also the eponymous Tiny Idiot from Seattle who has resisted the temptation to just make this a record of REO Speedwagon covers. Barely. Instead, he’s taken to Chicago, his happy place, to wean himself off anti-depressants and spread the joy. From the most detailed flight of fancy, birds-eye view of the life of a hipster meat barista to an exploration of the Old Testament as the most insane Dungeons and Dragons quest you’ve ever gone on (Salt pillars? Giants? Laser Angel Babies?) and the New Testament as an ode to hobos and hippies who love tapas, Sheen’s ready to take you with him on an hour of high-dose citalopram glee. After exploring Bible Belts and Tornado Alleys, he shares the two most American scenes he’s ever spotted, gives a guide to the nuances of hotels versus motels, and creates a D.A.R.E. program for the 21st century: spark it up and do some father-son bonding over frittatas. And while you’re at it? Give someone a hummer. YOLO!
In addition to the audio version of Tiny Idiot, Sheen’s fans should also check out Vimeo which features a video version of the album for rent at $2.99 or $5.99 to purchase, which also includes an exclusive outtake. That’s a whole lotta Derek Sheen to peruse.
