STORY OPPORTUNITIES

On November 9th, Blonde Medicine will release Eric Lampaert's new comedy album "Alien of Extraordinary Ability," based on his critically acclaimed show of the same name, which he performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The title is a reference to the U.S. Department of Immigration classification of the same name that gives priority to visa-seekers who demonstrate "extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics." Lampaert currently holds citizenship in three different countries (France, UK and USA), most recently becoming a U.S. citizen after his marriage to a "nice lady" from Pittsburgh (this will make more sense once you've listened to the album). Lampaert's relationship with the audience on his album is teasingly confrontational, but he skirts each issue so charmingly that he never completely ventures into heel territory.
