Starting Tuesday, Dean Edwards, a zealous comedian from the Bronx, spends his birthday week performing standup at Acme Comedy Co. His clean but unforgiving act focuses primarily on pop culture ("Don't it seem like all of Rihanna's songs are just a bunch of vowels strung together?") and relationships. Edwards began pursuing comedy professionally over two decades ago after juggling community college classes ("Let's be real: The only reason they call it an Associate's is because you're associated with college, not because it counts") and a six-year term in the U.S. Army Reserves. Following a breakthrough appearance on DEF Comedy Jam, he became omnipresent on the television and film circuit, racking up laughs on Saturday Night Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, and Guy Code. The Prince fan also rants every Monday about "The dos, the don'ts, the what's been done" on his Futhamuckin' podcast.
