Nick Vatterott – For Amusement Only

Nick Vatterott came out of nowhere for me, but it’s one of my favorites. He’s been around somewhat, has a Comedy Central credit, along with being on a few late night shows. He frequently opened for TJ Miller 

Nick Vatterott is able to utilize the ability to draw on quick transitions of voices and sounds, but never makes it about just making a weird sound from his mouth. On the track Introduce yourself Vatterott utilizes his ability to swiftly move from voice to voice to build up to some great punchlines. It has him starting with hearing someone ask the bartender if they’re name is “Dar-Kar ” and going into that person about that is not a name. Then he goes on to add an element of how people will repeat names. This joke is one of the most layered jokes I have ever heard, and on top of the great writing, Vatterott’s delivery makes the joke work. 

Vatterott is able to utilize his energy into unique jokes that in addition to being high energy are different. This album is definitely a shining star of what comedy can be, any comedy and should give this album a listen. He is a great writer, and his ability to embrace small characters in jokes and perform them in big ways is stellar. 

Favorite Tracks: Catch of the day, TV, Introduce yourself
