Stephen Lynch Is a Funny Musician

February 21st, 2013

When it comes to performing, there are talented singers and there are funny comedians. But anyone who’s been to a comedy club knows the Venn diagram overlap of people who excel at both is relatively slim. Enter: Stephen Lynch. He moved to New York City in 1996 with dreams of becoming a performer. So Lynch plugged away, temping during the day and performing whenever and wherever he could at night before recording a special for Comedy Central in 2000. Since then, Lynch has steadily remained busy, performing, touring the country and putting out comedy albums and live DVDs—he even landing on Broadway. On his recently released album, Lions (stream it below), Lynch is firing on all comedic and melodic cylinders. And tomorrow night he plays The Wellmont Theatre.
