Jim Florentine's brand new live comedy CD/DVD has cracked the top 5 on the Billboard Current Comedy Chart! Cringe 'n' Purge, Florentine's latest live comedy offering, was recorded live in Orlando, FL and released on October 25th on Metal Blade Records. Between the album and filming for season 9 of VH1's That Metal Show, it's been an incredibly busy and exciting Fall for the comedian/actor.
Jim Florentine adds, "Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I'd have a top 5 album on the Billboard charts! I want to thank everyone at Metal Blade for their knowledge and hard work on getting this album out there. I also want to thank all my fans for the rave reviews I am getting on the record. Thank God there are still people out there that like raunchy jokes!"
Cringe 'n' Purge is also available on iTunes with three additional bonus tracks. The album peaked at #3 on the iTunes comedy charts alongside comedic stars Patton Oswalt, Doug Benson, Louis C.K. and more!
A live audio and video clip from Cringe 'n' Purge are both available now at metalblade.com/jimflorentine. Besides hosting VH1 Classic's That Metal Show, Jim Florentine has also appeared on shows such as HBO's Inside the NFL, Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Chelsea Lately on E, The Howard Stern Radio & TV Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, MTV Music Video Awards, Spike TV Video Game Awards, HBO Down and Dirty Comedy Show, The Apprentice, and of course as "Special Ed" and "Bobby Fletcher" on Crank Yankers. His theatrical career was ramped up this summer when he appeared on the screen alongside The Office's Jenna Fischer in the movie A Little Help, which was also released on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 25th.
