Comedian Jim Breuer released his new heavy metal comedy single “Santa Claus Ain’t Coming to Town” on Monday, December 2. The song is the feature single from his highly-anticipated album, scheduled to hit stores nationwide in spring 2014. A pioneer in the “heavy-metal comedy” revolution, Breuer’s “Santa Claus Ain’t Coming to Town” serves as a stern warning from parents to their kids with a comedic twist just in time for the holidays. Fans can download the song on iTunes at http://smarturl.it/SantaAint.
Known for his impersonations of Metallica, Ozzy Osborne and AC/DC, Breuer showcased his metal-infused brand of frenetic comedy during last year’s “Heavy Metal Family Man” tour. In his new single, Breuer combines his love of rock ‘n’ roll and comedy, appropriate for fans of all ages.
Where comedy and heavy metal come together, Breuer’s live performances of his own brand of metal has put him on stages around the world—as special guest of Metallica and at both U.S. Orion Festivals, and at prestigious global festivals like Download (UK), Wacken (Germany) and Sonisphere (eur). Jim has assembled world class players into a band that will more-than-deliver musically, and coupled with his vocals and lyrics, the metal world has already begun to welcome it with open arms and horns raised.
Named Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Breuer is currently one of the top touring comedians in the country. After his renowned four year run on “Saturday Night Live” and starring role in the cult classic movie “Half Baked” alongside Dave Chappelle, Breuer was propelled into comedy stardom. Now all grown up and married with three daughters, Breuer continues to win over audiences with his charismatic stage antics, dead-on impressions, and signature family-friendly stand-up.
His latest one-hour comedy special “Jim Breuer: And Laughter for All” (released on DVD November 2013) was the #1 EPIX Original Program streamed on Netflix last month. In his special, Breuer grapples with the absurdities and annoyances of finding himself a middle aged father of three in suburban New Jersey. In 2011, Breuer embarked on a national tour with three of the country’s top comedians, Dave Attell, Bill Burr, and Jim Norton, for “The Anti-Social Network” tour. That same year, Breuer’s acclaimed autobiography, “I’m Not High: (But I’ve Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior),” was released on paperback. In the memoir, Breuer sheds light on his early struggles, his rise to fame and the many lessons he’s learned along in an extremely funny, yet personal and touching way that fans have never seen before.
Following his success in “Half Baked,” Breuer has since appeared in the popular films “Zookeeper,” “Dick,” “Titan A.E.” and “Beer League.” On the small screen, Breuer hosted MTV’s popular “Beach House” and VH1’s “Web Junk 20.” His other television appearances include “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and “The Marriage Ref.” Breuer is also a frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show.
