Matt Braunger has the Nick Swardson genial everyday guy who drinks appeal with the delivery of Dana Gould and the specificity of Patton Oswalt. I am officially a fan after 1 listen. I have a long commute and use stand up sets to get me through it. I saw Soak Up The Night in the $5.00 section and figured I would take a chance on a fellow I had heard on Marc Maron's WTF podcast and Jesse Thorn's The Sound of Young America podcast. He was a good interview that turned out to be a comedian with a sensibility up my alley. He had me going from the start..the pacing was excellent, delivery crisp. His bits Comedian, Bathroom Graffitti and Lifting Weights To the Smiths made me like the direction this was all going - if the whole CD had plateaued with those first three - the purchase would have been justified. But I started silently knee slapping around the time he got to Bed Calzones. Was stifling laughter at the Marble Slab Creamery. Let a chortle escape during Rapper Interview and started plain laughing without care for my fellow bus riders by the time Soak Up The Night crested. BUY THIS NOW

I purchased Soak Up the Night without knowing much about Matt Braunger's comedy, and I am glad I did. The routine consists of a series of vignettes. And even though they are not strung together as an overall narrative, they are individually full of strikingly funny images, turns of phrase, and a strong sense of timing. If music is the moments of silence between the notes, comedy is the cadence of the delivery.

I found Braunger refreshingly likeable. I have many dark comics in my collection simply because I have found that too many lighter, observational comics have terribly unfunny material. Braunger is an exception. His observations aren't overly cynical and crude, and they aren't jokes everyone is telling right now; Braunger is very careful to quickly leave a topic that has been overdone (i.e., he only spends two minutes on George W. Bush).

Overall, I got the sense that he has lived through his comedy, which gives him far more authenticity than a comedian who merely tells jokes. He also has a great crowd on this album as well as good sound editing. Soak Up the Night is one of the best comedy albums of 2009.

Have been following Matt Braunger but for some dumb reason have not purchased any of his stand up. Mistake corrected.

Matt Braunger, in my opinion is a great comedian. His jokes are constructed well, his timing is correct and his delivery is uniquely entertaining. His debut album Soak Up The Night is a great addition to any comedy-lover's collection. I've seen him perform live as well and he certainly did not disappoint!
