On October 6th, we at Sub Pop will once again celebrate the lonely art of stand-up comedy with the release of Eugene Mirman’s new album God Is a Twelve-Year-Old Boy with Asperger’s. This will mark only the 5th comedy record we’ve released in our entire history. With our catalog numbers soaring impressively skyward, numbering in the 800s now, that’s a fact worth noting. 5 out of 800+? That means just about one half of one percent of our releases are from stand-up comedians. What I’m driving at here, people, is that we’re really choosey about our comedy. God Is a Twelve-Year-Old Boy with Asperger’s is Eugene Mirman’s second record on Sub Pop and we couldn’t be more proud. We’re so proud in fact, that if you pre-order God Is a Twelve-Year-Old Boy with Asperger’s by October 6th, we’ll throw in a Eugene Mirman tote-bag (while supplies last, of course) and some Eugene-related buttons and stickers.
