Seattle comedian Jubal Flagg recently released his debut album in conjunction with New Wave Dynamics entitled “Parlor Tricks.” The album includes tracks such as, “Facebook,” “Sexting,” “Condoms,” “Dirty Talk” and “Why Jubal is Single,” so you certainly can’t say I didn’t warn you.
If you’re into sexual innuendo or raunchy humor, Flagg is the comic for you. He’s also hip and up to date, no doubt a product of his daily hosting duties on MOVIN 92.5. His radio show, “Brooke and Jubal in the Morning” is a big success, and Flagg writes jokes for radio stations nationwide.
Flagg starts off his routine by catering to his female audience, as he does mostly throughout the album. “I’ve been working out for this..going to the gym working on my cankles,” joked Flagg. “I don’t understand why I can’t meet women at the gym. I do everything right. I put on my tank top. Where the tiniest gym shorts I have, and when I see one I like I just follow her around.”
Listening to Flagg’s album is like hanging out with your group of guy friends, talking about every day, immature stuff. Flagg is extremely topical, youthful, and presents a terrific set for people in their 20′s and 30′s. He goes right up to the line of being over confident and arrogant, and then flips the script on you by being self deprecating.
As Jubal goes through his set, he tells stories about some of his most ridiculous experiences in life, from his relationships to his indulgent late night drinking. You get the feeling that these stories are more of a commentary on today’s young adults, and less about who Flagg really is. Either way, the stories are definitely entertaining and well worth listening too.
“I’m glad to see that nobody is wearing those little attitude shirts with sayings on them like ‘princess’, ‘hottie’ or ‘daddy’s girl,’” Flagg says to the ladies in the crowd. “I think if you have the right to put a shirt on that says ‘hottie’ knowing damn well you look like an extra from Star Trek, I have the right to sue you for false advertising.”
Flagg finishes his set by talking about sexting, condoms, and that particular part of the male anatomy. While some may question his range, the truth is there’s is an unlimited amount of material from these sort of topics which are on everyone’s mind. Jubal’s tone and style of delivery are custom tailored to tell jokes about taboo subjects that leave the insecure among us a bit squeamish. If I could sum up the album in one word. it’d have to be “cool.”
