Comedy Dynamics has announced they will release the album for Gary Gulman: The Great Depresh, on May 15, 2020 through SiriusXM, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal and more. The special originally debuted on HBO on October 5, 2019, and was directed by Michael Bonfiglio and produced by Judd Apatow.
Comedian and actor Gary Gulman stars in his first HBO stand-up comedy special, shot in front of a live audience in Brooklyn, NY. In The Great Depresh, Gary opens up about his lifelong mental health issues in a deep, but hilarious way. Gulman shares the full arc of his story, from growing up as a sensitive kid, his ill-fated Boston College football career, his increasingly troubling bouts with depression as an adult, along with the myriad of treatments he employed during his inspiring recovery. Throughout the special, Gary showcases his unique style of humor while touching on a variety of topics, including his admiration for Millennial ethics, the menacing 60 Minutes ‘theme”, the 1980’s kidnapping hysteria and so much more.
All original, all hilarious, all new. This is the comedy special that received universal critical acclaim.
As The Daily Beast says, “Gulman has never been more honest and personal in his comedy than he is on The Great Depresh.”
The New York Times said “It’s a clinic from one of the best joke writers working today.”
“So grateful to HBO and Comedy Dynamics for giving me an opportunity to take my mental illness and monetize it,” said Gary Gulman.
“I’ve known Gary 20 years of my 21 year career, and all he’s done is added laughs and knowledge to my life. It’s beyond an honor to be trusted with his latest album!” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
