Comedian Rob Tanchum's new album, Disturbed, Depressed, Inadequate, will be released on November 14. The record, which has been described as a rap sci-fi concept album, features Tanchum, a self-described “depressed loser from Earth,” who is abducted by alien scientists, played by Dan Harmon and Jeff Davis. Tanchum discusses how the aliens probe his unconscious mind and extract an album of “self-loathing, id-driven rap songs.”
The album, written by Rob Tanchum, with music composed and produced by Superfool, aka Kevin Hall and Shawheen Keyani, also features Iman Europe, Sinsay, and Kaleigh Young, and is titled after one of George Constanza's outbursts on Seinfeld after he is rejected by yet another woman.
Disturbed, Depressed, Inadequate was produced by Dan Harmon, a writer, producer, and actor, who created and produced the NBC sitcom Community and co-created the Adult Swim animated series Rick and Morty. He currently hosts a weekly live comedy podcast named Harmontown.
