Entertainment Weekly Picks Jonah Ray EP for “5 Best Stand-Up Albums” of 2012
by Perry Michael Simon on December 26, 2012
Hey, I happened to be meandering around the Entertainment Weekly website when I happened upon their list of the “five best stand-up albums of the year” for 2012. Guess who was on it? Well, yes, Tig Notaro’s brilliant Live was on it. And Paul F. Tompkins, John Mulaney, and Hannibal Buress, too. But right there with those comedy luminaries was our own Jonah Ray with Hello, Mr. Magic Plane Person, Hello.
We’re SO PROUD.
EW calls Jonah “perhaps the (Nerdist) collective’s darkest member” and says that “he has blended together many of his obsessions into one massive blast of insecurity and hilarity.” Sounds about right.
