New York-based comedian Janelle James will release her debut comedy album this Friday, Sept. 29. The album, entitled Black and Mild, will be available on Audible, Spotify, Pandora and iTunes, the lattermost which has it available for pre-order now.
Black and Mild was taped at Acme Comedy Co. in Minneapolis. In it, James covers a host of topics including dating, pop culture and what it’s like coming up as a stand-up comedian. Among the album’s many highlights are hilarious bits centered on “public proposals” and “macho dads,” which James playfully tackles with her one-of-a-kind blunt style.
The past year has been good to James, who has racked up notable credits on shows like Comedy Central’s @midnight, Fuse’s Uproarious and Night Train with Wyatt Cenac. She was also named one of The 50 Most Funny People in Brooklyn and was included among Just For Laughs Montreal’s 2016 “New Faces.”
James can currently be seen touring with Chris Rock as part of his Total Blackout Tour.
