<p>Hailed widely in the press as a peerlessly imaginative American original, Robert Buscemi performs some of the most adventurous, outlandish stand-up around. After winning "Best Comedian 2009" honors in the Chicago Reader newspaper and a long string of critical accolades for his surrealist flights of fancy, Buscemi took his act to LA. A veteran of short film, commercials, one-man shows, improv, sketch comedy, and stage plays, the witty wordsmith has turned heads through high-profile appearances at the Rooftop Aspen, Chicago Improv, and DC Comedy fests. A self-proclaimed thinking-man's idiot, Buscemi claims he can beat Jesus at chess, reproduce like a cottonwood tree, and braid sexual conquests. His debut album on the Rooftop Comedy Productions label, "Palpable," captures a tour-de-force hour of him at his best -- and most outrageous.
