Metal Blade Records recently welcomed comedian and metalhead Jim Florentine to its roster. Jim Florentine is a stand-up comedian, actor, writer, comedian, voice artist, and performer, who is currently co-hosting VH1 Classic’s hit heavy metal talk show series “That Metal Show” alongside Eddie Trunk and now label-mate Don Jamieson. Recently, Jim Florentine opened up the American Carnage Tour for Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer in arenas across the country.
On signing with Metal Blade, Florentine commented, Being a fan of the Metal Blade label since its inception, it is truly an honor to be part of the family now. I will try my hardest to make the heaviest comedy album ever. So expect plenty of fat jokes!
Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel added, I have always been a big fan of comedy and Jim is a great comedian. He is also a metal head and friend so I am so excited to welcome him to the Metal Blade Family!
