Drew broke out last year with his self-titled, one-hour special on HBO (Drew Michael), released to widespread critical acclaim. Its radical approach in both format and content led The New York times to exalt it as “thrillingly subversive,” while GQ raved that Drew “represents the past and future of stand-up comedy.” The special earned a prestigious Writers Guild Award nomination, the only stand-up special to do so last year.
Drew has also released a half-hour special on Comedy Central (The Half Hour) as well as two full-length live albums (Funny to Death, Lovely), both of which debuted at #1 on the iTunes charts. He wrote for Saturday Night Live and guest-starred in an episode of The Carmichael Show.
Drew has also done a lot of other things, most of which are not relevant here.
