(The Syn) Known for voicing the role of Randall the zombie on the animated hit Ugly Americans, Kurt Metzger steps out from behind the drawings to deliver one of the funniest hours of stand-up heard in a long time. Metzger's Talks to Young People About Sex digital album will be released on Comedy Central Records on Tuesday, June 28th.
In this hour set taped at Helium Comedy Club in Philadelphia, Metzger lays out details about the gulf oil spill and how it pertains to New Jersey, man's evolution from monkeys, why God could be a woman, and the reasons we should forgive Tiger Woods.
Formerly a Christian minister, Metzger found himself more at home in the comedy clubs of New York City than in the cloth, and soon logged many appearances on Comedy Central as a stand-up and as a writer for Chapelle's Show. He was just picked for Comedy Central's Hot List 2010 alongside Pete Homes, Reggie Watts, Kyle Kinnane, Chelsea Peretti, Natasha Leggero, and Owen Benjamin.
Other credits include performing on Live at Gotham, Showtime's White Boys in the Hood and as a regular on VH1's Best Week Ever. Metzger filmed a half-hour special for Comedy Central and appeared on Important Things with Demetri Martin and IFC's Z-Rock. In 2007, he was the stand out comedian at the Montreal Comedy Festival's New Faces showcase. He has also written for other Spike TV, VH1 and Comedy Central programs.
