|Shoestrings: 16th Anniversary (2017)||In In 2001, Dan & Jay’s Comedy Hour (Dan Gomiller and Jason Klamm) released their first comedy album, Shoestrings, on the burgeoning MP3.com. Written and recorded in Laurens and Oneonta, New York, Shoestrings was the only sketch comedy album released that year that was written and recorded in Upstate New York. We assume.
In 2017, as the album celebrates its Sweet 16, Celery Sound Records have re-released Shoestrings, featuring tracks from Jenny Is A Slute and one of Dan and Jay’s privately-released Christmas albums.
|Ho, Christmas Tree! (November 25, 2014)||In 2014, Dan and Jay released their first new comedy album in 13 years, as well as their first publicly-available Christmas album. You can buy the download here from Celery Sound Records.
It’s also available for purchase as the SMALLEST COMEDY ALBUM IN HISTORY, with a sleeve of 1.7cm squared, with the album and extras on a MicroSD card.
|The Best Hos of All (2012, private release)||This compilation of Christmas album best-ofs also contained an original sketch or two, as well as numerous interstitials and Christmas wishes.|
|I’ll Be Ho For Christmas (2004, private release, incomplete)||In 2004, Jay released a limited Christmas comedy album, only a few tracks long. It’s more notable for the cover.|
|It’s the Perfect Time of Year For a Ho (2002, private release)||In 2002, another Christmas album. The cover features Jay, Dan and Jay’s sister Ren, with special appearances by friend of the group Chad Newman, and Gudolph, the Copyright-Safe Reindeer.|
|Jenny Is a Slute (2002, planned release, incomplete)||Right after Shoestrings was released, Dan and Jay made plans and wrote copious sketches for a planned second album. The title comes from something they saw scrawled on a bench (the same bench as on the cover) at an elementary school.|
|Dan Gomiller: Man of Juicy Texture (2001, private release)||For Dan’s 22nd birthday, Jay created a comedy album for him.|
|Dannel Gomiller’s Post 4th of July CD Part II: Thanksgiving (2001, private release)||Dan shortly followed up his 4th of July CD with a Thanksgiving-themed album featuring more original sketches and karaoke.|
|Dannel Gomiller’s Post 4th of July CD (2001, private release)||In 2001, Jay moved to Chicago and Dan sent a care package of this CD, containing custom sketches, as well as numerous karaoke-singings.|
|Dan and Jay’s Comedy? Hour Presents: Follow That Ho (2001, private release)||The second Christmas album continued the tradition, and introduced us to a read-along section of the album featuring Pokeweed, a racist children’s book character (for a reason, not just LOL-so-random, as the kids don’t say anymore).|
|Shoestrings: The Demo (2001)||Dan and Jay’s first album release saw a number of surreal ideas come to life. Dan and Jay created all their own sound effects, entirely with a stalk of celery. Even a jet plane. Astounding. Actually, shortly thereafter, the album was used to teach students at SUNY Oneonta about low-budget sound design and editing.|
|The Next Ho’s On Us (2000, private release)||In 2000, Dan and Jay entered the realm of digital audio simply because Dan owned a CD burner. Jay and Dan put together some new sketches and began a Christmas tradition, which included sketches featuring Santa and The Elves.|
|Dan and Jay’s Komedy? Hour: Greatest Hits (1994, cassette-only private release)||Later in 1993, Dan and Jay began creating their own characters and stealing some classics. Dan then compiled one or two tapes into a “Greatest Hits” compilation, which is the only reason any of those sketches survive.|
|The Headcleaners (1993, cassette-only private release)||Dan and Jay’s first experiments were on a tape they labeled “Head Cleaner,” featuring two stupid hosts whose “catch phrase” was “we really suck.” Yep.|
