Joe Pera

Post by sfpcc » Tue May 22, 2018 3:37 pm

There is a new show on Adult Swim called Joe Pera Talks With You. The reason I''m mentioning this is that it seems to take place in Marquette. The first episode show a lot of the city. Like most Adult Swim shows the humor is kind of hard to explain, (try describing Aqua Teen Hunger Force without sounding like your on drugs.) The humor is also very dry, ( it's a very far cry from Home Improvement which also took place in Michigan.)

Joe Pera is actually a stand-up comedian. The second episode is shot in Milwaukee. After watching it I can't help but be reminded of David Byrne's True Stories from the mid-1980s. Joe's cadence is dead on. Everything on Adult Swim by the way is designed to watch while stoned.

His "Joe Pera Talks You To Sleep" was pretty well put-together, and I love the reference of several pretzel companies in Pennsylvania I know too well!
