Jim Norton's PLEASE BE OFFENDED to be Released on CD, DVD and Digital, 8/20

Comedian and best-selling author Jim Norton pulls no punches, going after jaw-dropping laughs not intended for the faint of heart. On the special, to be released by New Wave Dynamics on CD, DVD, and digitally August 20, 2013, Norton targets the national hypersensitivity epidemic afflicting leading celebrities, talking heads and regular Joes alike who get offended by just about anything. Norton's got a message for those people, and it's in the title.

The special, recorded at the Ohio Theatre in Cleveland, premiered on EPIX last year, and was the highest rated comedy special premiere in the network's history

Jim Norton has emerged as one of the most versatile, unique voices in comedy; he is a 2-time NY Times bestselling author, sells out theaters nationwide as a standup comedian, is a regular contributor on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Fox Red Eye, Hannity, Joy Behar, Chelsea Lately,The Burn with Jeff Ross, Inside Amy Schumer, The Jeselnik Offensive, Totally Biased with W. Kamu Bell, Celebrity Ghost Storiesand others. Jim is also the third mic on the popular Opie & Anthony radio show, does a nightly music show, Obsessed, on Ozzy's Boneyard, and hosts his own weekly advice show, The Jim Norton Show, where people call in for advice on sex, relationships, addiction and comedy. He has also appeared as an actor in numerous TV series and feature films.

In December of 2012 Jim released his fourth standup comedy album, No Baby For You. His third album, Despicable, was released in 2011 and debuted at #2 on the Billboard comedy charts. His other two comedy albums, Yellow Discipline and Trinkets I Own Made From Gorilla Hands, were released in 2002 and 2003 respectively. Jim is also the creator of the wildly successful Anti-Social Comedy tour franchise, which brings together Jim's headliner comedian friends on the same stage for standup shows.

Both of Jim's books, I Hate Your Guts (2008) and HAPPY ENDINGS: The Tales of a Meaty-Breasted Zilch (2007), released by Simon & Schuster, spent several weeks on The New York Times bestseller list. The books are collections of Jim's personal journal entries, raunchy sex stories, embarrassing star sightings and pathetic childhood memories all told in Jim's honest, introspective voice.

Enchanted by standup comedy at age 12 when he saw Richard Pryor's special Richard Pryor: Live In Concert, Jim wound up in rehab at 17, dropped out of high school the next year, then started signing up for open-mic nights at local bars at 21.

He lives in New York City.
