    Comedian Erik Griffin Signs to SideOneDummy Records - He will release "Technical Foul: Volume One" on March 12

    Har har har. Comedian and actor Erik Griffin has joined forces with SideOneDummy Records to release his debut comedy album, Technical Foul: Volume One on March 12, 2013. This marks the first ever comedic signing for the renowned indie/punk record label. We love when labels try new things, especially in this day and age. This is a smart signing for both parties.

    Known for his hilarious observations about life, love and self-evaluation, Griffin is excited about forging the comedy path on SideOneDummy. “I'm excited to be the official dummy on the label. Indie rock and comedy are definitely second cousins,” says Griffin.

    Joe Sib, co-founder of Side One Dummy Records, shares the comedian's enthusiasm, saying, “I am so excited (I mean stoked!) that SideOneDummy will be releasing our first full-length comedy record with Erik. With Erik's material and delivery, I have found myself gasping for air while trying to see through a sea of tears from laughing so hard."

    Griffin will kick off his new partnership with SideOneDummy by offering Technical Foul: Volume One for pre-order exclusively via a Pledge Music Campaign. There, fans have the ability to preview Technical Foul: Volume One, pre-order special packages that range from autographed CDs, t-shirts, or get tickets to his record release parties. The campaign will also offer more elaborate packages including a dinner with Erik, having him make a prank phone call to someone, or put on a private stand-up performance.

    Amazing perks right there, right? Go here to pledge. We want the prank call and the private performance, preceded by dinner with Griffin, of course.
