I wish I could live in the imagination of Doug Mellard for a day. Known for his fast-paced humor, the 2006 Funniest Person Austin winner really delivers with his latest release, Fart Safari 2: Fart Harder from Standup! Records. But if you think that all you’re in for are dick and fart jokes, you’d be mistaken.
Don’t worry…they’re in there, but Mellard is far from being a one-fart pony. Mellard’s combination of observational humor and absurd fantastical “what if” scenarios had me laughing so hard, I was alarming nearby joggers as I listened on a walk. Mellard makes observations that are so vivid they will stay with you…the kind that make you crack up in the middle of a room of confused people, as you encounter them in your own life. Life’s little callbacks, if you will.
His perfect and hilarious irreverence for life events from weddings to funerals give comfort to those of us that approach these events with an equal sense of dread. The “what ifs” he creates left me feeling like I was in on his practical jokes on the world. I guess if you can’t live inside the imagination of Doug Mellard, the next best thing would be to listen to Fart Safari 2: Fart Harder, now available on iTunes and Stand Up! Records, as soon as possible.
