Self-described as a surly misanthrope, comic Duchaine has never been afraid to offend. This is no less true of Offensive…and Not in a Good Way, his 2012 comedy album. With biting, lucid commentary on the war between the sexes, body image, religion, marriage, and career, for Duchaine, nothing is sacred. His righteous anger combined with a healthy dose of cynicism recalls the work of George Carlin, and gives listeners the same reason to laugh. A regular performer on tour and in Vegas, Duchaine’s album is not to be missed.
