Of all the Comedy Central releases this year, Class Act is the most honest, fearless, and brutally funny. After years of comedic diligence, Morril broke through the clutter with this album that foreshadows his bright future ahead.
Recorded at New York’s Village Underground, Class Act debuts a masterful comic, capable of pulling off dark jokes without being distasteful:
“I look exactly like my biological father so I showed my friend a picture, and he said, ‘wow, it’s like you guys were separated at birth.’ I said, ‘we were.’”
These are the sorts of tight jokes that Morril packs into his one hour set. If you’re looking for a comic who embodies the characteristics of a great stand-up, Sam Morril is your man.
