Drew broke out with his self-titled, one-hour special on HBO (Drew Michael), released to widespread critical acclaim. Its radical approach in both format and content led The New York times to exalt it as “thrillingly subversive,” while GQ raved that Drew “represents the past and future of stand-up comedy.” The special earned a prestigious Writers Guild Award nomination, the only stand-up special to do so in the last five years.
Drew has also released a half-hour special on Comedy Central (The Half Hour) as well as three full-length live albums (Drew Michael, Funny to Death, Lovely), which debuted at #1 on the iTunes charts. He has also written for Saturday Night Live.
Drew has also done a lot of other things, most of which are not relevant here.
