Bravo to Fred Armisen’s Standup for Drummers, the hour-long comedy special where the Saturday Night Live alum and the leader of The 8G Band (the Late Night with Seth Meyers’ resident combo) performs to an audience of — make a guess — drummers.
But you don’t need to be a skinner (or even musically-inclined) to enjoy Armisen’s quirky observations (“I’m gonna do my impression of a guy in the ’50s at a doo-wop show”); there are inside jokes but they aren’t so inside that they alienate you (he does a bizarre gag about a decomposing fox — don’t ask).
He also has some help from the likes of Sheila E, Green Day’s Tre Cool and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa to share idiosyncratic drummer stories. If you do happen to be in a band, pay close attention: you may pick up some stage etiquette.
