Part stand-up, part confession, "The Big Angry" is Chicago-born comic Mike Schmidt's debut album, and it's unlike anything you've heard before. As with his cult podcast "The 40 Year Old Boy," in "The Big Angry" Mike excavates his troubled past – and even more troubled family ties – in an earnest attempt to explain why at the age of 46 he is still, in his own words, "a fuck-up." It's a journey that is alternately hilarious, profane, violent, disturbing, and deeply moving, often within the same breath. We're left with an unforgettable account of one man's struggle to survive himself - an account that is, like all great comedy, both deeply personal and universal. 2 tracks, 80 minutes.
