Veteran Stand-Up Comic Saleem Releases New LP “How Dare You!”

Saleem, a longtime and well-loved stand-up comedian from Dayton, OH, has released his newest show, “How Dare You!,” to wide acclaim. The long-playing digital album spans approximately 45 minutes in 19 segments, with a bonus track containing thanks and additional material moving it closer to the hour mark. This collection of Saleem’s newest material is recorded live and uninterrupted from the stage, for a legitimate and hilarious comedy club experience. Saleem’s performance is charismatic and intelligent, fearless and irreverent, ridiculous and hilarious.

The subject matter for this show ranges from the mildly political to the absolutely absurd, with topics that include airplane security, hyphenated racial backgrounds, and – Matthew McConaughey.

“Even if you agree with me about something, it’s not for the same reasons,” says Saleem. “For instance, I do believe people from different ethnic backgrounds can live in peace. Just not in the same neighborhood.”
Saleem’s comedy is a refreshing blend of maturity and disrespect, of social awareness and general disregard. Every foolish angle of society is fair game to him, but his delicate diction gives the distinct impression that he cares deeply about humanity, too. Honesty is his policy, and the slightest whiff of pretensiousness incites a jibe.
“Don’t call me African-American,” he says. “You may as well say you don’t think nothing of me. You may as well call me a unicorn or some other [thing] that don’t exist.”
This interest in humanitarian issues may be a lasting effect of the late, great George Carlin, whom Saleem cites as a primary influence, as well as Richard Pryor, and other comic geniuses of the twentieth century. With the inertia he’s built up leading to the release of “How Dare You!” (a career of over twenty years, in fact) he is poised to take his rightful place among them.
He writes of this record, “This comedy album is a message of liberty and laughter. It is my unreserved opinion of the society that we live in, the passion for change and the confidence and faith in the future that I believe in. I believe we are living in a pivotal moment in history. This is my note in the chorus of the future, a note of laughter, intelligence and light.”
And indeed, the note rings true: laughter, intelligence, and light. Not bad for $5.99.
