Hello whoever’s listening.
I wanted to let you guys know that my show, “Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous” will finally be airing May 2nd at 1030pm on MTV. It’s something that I’ve been working on for a long time now and I’m very proud of it. There’s a lot to be made fun of when it comes to young people’s desperate need to be famous, and to be able to do it on MTV — the place where many of those needs are cultivated — is lots of fun (and MTV was very nice to have a sense of humor about itself).
Lately, a lot of people have been asking me if I died or stopped doing comedy. I’ve been working a lot over the last few years, but I know it seems like I’ve just disappeared since officially released anything since “words, words, words.” But I have no want to flood you with half-baked content just to “stay relevant.” I’d rather release things when I feel that they’re worthy of your attention. If it takes a few years, that’s fine.
But those few years are up! I’m finally done writing my new hour of comedy. I’ll tour that soon(ish) and then record the special.
A lot of great comics have started to release material much more frequently (louis ck being the best example: doing a new hour every year). I think if you can do that, more power to you. That’s amazing. But for me, this last hour was made by a lot of banging my head against the wall and a long process of re-writing and going into the studio and re-writing again. I wanted this new special to be as different from “words, words, words” as “words, words, words” was to my first CD (which was a collection of my YouTube songs) — so that took a decent amount of time. I really hope you guys enjoy the new material. Surprising you and making you think is much more important to me than feeding you dick joke songs until I’m dead (THE SPECIAL STILL HAS PLENTY OF DICK JOKES AND SONGS!).
I also I’m finishing up my poetry book that should be coming out this fall. It’s full of vulgar, silly, sweet and weird poems and illustrations. Should be a fun little read while you’re taking a shit or avoiding your significant other.
But yes, just wanted to update you guys. I hope you enjoy the TV show when it comes out. And the special when it comes out. And the book when it comes out. You do not need to buy any of them. There are plenty of ways to steal nowadays if you know how to use a computer.
