Comic MC Mr. Napkins releases album Nov. 30
Cambridge’s Zach Sherwin, also known as MC Mr. Napkins, moved to Los Angeles less than a year ago to take his skills as a comedian to the next step. That seems to have happened: “MC Mr. Napkins: The Album,” a full-length album of his comedy raps, will be released Nov. 30 by Comedy Central as a digital download.
The 16-track album (14 studio tracks and two live) will be available on iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Audible and most digital providers, Comedy Central’s press office said Monday. Videos for “Krav Maga” and “Smoothies” are to be released on Atom.com in conjunction with the release.
This is just Sherwin’s latest step on his way to being America’s most beloved white, Jewish comedy rapper. Since winning the Boston Phoenix Best Comedian award last year, he has added appearances on VH1, CNN and “Last Call with Carson Daly” and opened for acts including Jay-Z, Joel McHale, Mike Birbiglia and N.E.R.D.
