, the latest from New York comedian Anthony DeVito
, is immensely funny. It easily boasts some of the year’s biggest laughs. Anthony, a charming and talented writer, doesn’t take life too seriously. Everything and everyone is fair game—relationships, senility, rapper/singer Shaggy—as the New Jersey native finds new, interesting and personal ways to make hilarious, smartass observations. Anthony DeVito
is clever, but never cute about it. His self-effacing anecdotes, left turns into absurdity, satire, impersonations and wordplay never feel overindulgent. He’s refreshingly to the point. For instance, in Dream Occupation
’s opening moments, he acknowledges that he looks racially ambiguous and his name is “suspiciously” traditional as he jokes about arriving to the airport four hours early. The quickest way between two points is a straight line, and the quickest way to a laugh is to call out the obvious. Anthony DeVito
gives it to you straight every time.
