Audio Book Summary
Gen X Man, the latest album from comedian Erik Myers, is a laugh riot that feels like an actual riot. Erik is a foul-mouthed, whirling buzzsaw of brilliant observational comedy. He runs hotter and cuts deeper than a flaming house filled with razor blades. Cleared-eyed rage, true-to-life grievances and commonplace annoyances, "Gen X Man" blasts with hilarious, fiery, righteous anger. Erik Myers' ire is noteworthy. His social commentary avoids the trappings of trendy, hot button topics. Erik focuses his flurries to personal punching bags, unleashing funny-as-hell fury against cheap hotels, fast food and the Internet. The jokes are smart, sharp, compact, relatable, loud. He speaks volumes with volume. Unrelentingly funny, Erik Myers revs up the hysterics until you're convinced you'll never stop laughing. Gen X Man is an ode to the 1990s, the era when Erik Myers grew up. Erik is confused and pissed off by modern, flawed "conveniences" like ride-sharing and texting. The comedian indulges in sarcastic tirades about elusive, online dating practices, vanity, modern misnomers, and timeless idiocy to haggard, "back in my day" perfection. While Erik concedes that living during the Clinton administration wasn't as harrowing as his parents' and grandparents' upbringings--"Just got drafted into World War II #fml"--he advocates that corded phones, CDs that skipped and the indecipherable, adult movie channel built resilience and character. For instance, the lessons learned in "Land Mind," a track that features Erik's tale of youth, love, and a promotional tie-in for 1998's "Men in Black," is a rollicking, heartfelt, incisive highlight to this stellar comedy album.
