"Traditional Stand-Up" lyrics - BO BURNHAM

"Traditional Stand-Up"

We got a little serious there-I think "fisting" should be called "upper-cunting." And we're back.

Do you guys like impressions?



That was Socrates.

Older traditional stand-up comics sometimes have problems with me
Because they think I use music and other stuff
And they think I'm a gimmick, I'm a hack, you know, I'm a gimmick comic
And they're such comedy purists, they don't think my comedy can stand on it's own
But the truth is, I'm a comedy purist, too
So I can do comedy without gimmicks
I'll show you that right now
What do you call a kid with no arms and an eye-patch?
For those listening on the CD, I just gave birth to a dove

I love traditional stand-up comedy, don't get me wrong
I love it. I'm a huge fan of traditional stand-up comics
A lot of them are my heroes
And I want to be a traditional stand-up comic
And I've been working on some traditional stand-up material and
It's in its infancy so, please, bare with me, go easy
But this is a bit of my traditional stand-up


My wife, right?

-and, you know, something else that's really funny: she can't drive! The only think she can drive is DRIVE ME CRAZY and when she back talks I hit her
