    Joe DeRosa is back with the Return of the Son of Depression Auction, a digital album, with a word soup title, to be released on Comedy Central Records on Sept. 6. This is the follow-up album to his misanthrope masterpiece, The Depression Auction.

    Return of the Son of Depression Auction finds DeRosa doubling down on disappointment and misery, discussing his poor eating and exercise habits and his continued drinking and relations with women. With even more self-deprecating and hilarious stories and viewpoints, you will find it easy to laugh at his pain. This is why we like Joe DeRosa. He holds absolutely nothing back.

    This year, DeRosa made his directorial debut with the film Cheat, which starred himself, Bill Burr, Robert Kelly and Colin Quinn. DeRosa is currently writing, directing and producing a series of web shorts for Atom.com, co-hosting the podcast Uninformed with comedian and friend, Bill Burr, and touring clubs around the country. So, he never has a day off but being busy and on the road means he is mining plenty of sources for material to further heighten his already awesome act.

    DeRosa started stand-up comedy by hitting the Wednesday night open mic at the Laff House in Philadelphia, PA. Within a year, he was a regular there and at all the major clubs in the surrounding area.

    It was not long before DeRosa made the jump to New York City to take up comedy as a full-time gig. He quickly began working frequently at New York venues such as Caroline's, Stand-up New York, the Laugh Factory, and Gotham Comedy Club.

    Who is your favorite comedian? Do you dig Joe DeRosa?
