Comedian Don Jamieson Announces ‘Denim and Laughter’ Album + Tour
The title is a cheeky turn on Saxon's iconic 1981 release, Denim and Leather, falling in line with other rock album title puns that make up his existing comedy catalog.
"This album was recorded in front of about 40 hardcore fans in a speakeasy in a secret location in Los Angeles on October 19, 2019," said Jamieson of the album's setting, exclaiming, "Now the rest of you can enjoy it!"
Elaborating on the intimate gig, the comedian continued, "I've recorded my stand-up albums in comedy clubs, rock clubs and now an illegal club. Comedy is way more fun when you're at the risk of being raided at any moment!"
Jamieson also thanked Saxon for letting him spin a pun out of their album title and the comedian's European tour following the Feb. 21 release will feature Saxon frontman Biff Byford. See those dates toward the bottom of the page.
While headbangers are certainly familiar with Jamieson's work, he insists this album isn't designed exclusively for metalheads. "But of course, the album is not just for rockers, but for all people who like humor with a rock 'n' roll attitude. Comedy is like rock 'n' roll...it's no fun if it's not dangerous. And being a comedian on Metal Blade Records makes the whole package complete," he said.
