stephen lynch

Stephen Lynch is a wickedly clever, musically talented, very adorably cute — oh, and absolutely demented — comedic musician based in New York. His songs poke fun at such topics as stalking, gerbiling (should that have one or two Ls?), hermaphrodism, gay friendships, the Special Olympics, mental illness, necrophilia and more! It’s the quite politically incorrect sort of thing that I should probably feel guilty about liking. Color me lowbrow for a cute guy with a sweet singing voice.
OK, so his web site sucks, and I mean like really, *really* sucks (yeah, yeah, look who’s talking and all that… but his is supposed to be a commercial web site, after all; mine’s just a more expensive version of a vanity plate). And he’s apparently straight. Maybe the two are related? Anyway, I forgive him both sins.
So… I caught just the last few minutes of his Comedy Central special months ago, and immediately went looking for his stuff. His mailing list announcements about his upcoming performances and the like sound and feel more like email from a real friend than from someone you saw on TV to whom you’re really just an address in a database. But I eat it up anyway.
So this evening he sends an email about a last-minute gig he got on NBC’s Late Friday show at 1:35am. I managed to catch it, but they only gave him five minutes, and he didn’t get to sing the complete versions of either of the two songs he performed (including one of my faves, “If I Were Gay…”). I was really bummed, because the opening act of the co-hosts and the comic following him were both really +boring +dumb -funny.
In his email he also reported that the half-hour Comedy Central special will be rebroadcast Friday, May 24 at 10:30pm Eastern and Pacific time. This time I’ve got to remember to tape it. He’s also got some northeast appearances the rest of this month, but nothing nearer DC than NYC, unfortunately.
[ADDENDUM 2003-04-23 09:26: I had read/heard that Stephen doesn’t want his lyrics published online, so I emailed to ask him about this. He emailed me back yesterday that he appreciated me asking, and that he would like to ask to have them removed. The lyrics are published in the CD notes, so it’s easy enough to get them by getting his CDs… which I highly recommend, as they’re very funny. So I’ve deleted the two comments that included lyrics, and will delete any future ones that include lyrics as well.]

  24. On a few sites it says “this artist does not wish to have his lyrics posted”.
    This is most likely the reason why he doesn’t have his lyrics posted on his site.

  25. As an update, which I’ve also posted in a new journal entry, Stephen will be performing at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, on April 11.

  31. I would so do Stephen. But I’d be just as happy to shrink him down and put him in my pocket to party.
    Stephen Lynch rocks my world.

  32. Hey, Stephen Lynch is like a bro to me. He is nothing but the best. I so would love to get his email so I can ask him my few questions that I have for him. If anyone know’s it. Email it to me. Or if Stephen is reading this reply because I would love to share my takes on life as you have shared yours with me and the world. Sucks that his first CD is sold out. I didn’t even know he had one out. Well, mahalo for all your time and peace out.

  33. does any one know the lyrics or where to find the lyrics of special fred that is the funniest song i was laughing so hard tears came out of my eyes stephen lynch rocks and is so so sexy

  34. I love your website and enjoy your songs very much, would you send me a copy of the lyrics to the camel toe song? And is there a way to download the song itself?Among others.

  35. I was under the impression that Stephen Lynch did not want his lyrics posted on the internet.

  36. I’m sorry but i don’t think Stephen Lynch is that funny…his song “Specail Olympics” really upset me. Mostly because i not only coahc special olypmics teams i have a brother in it. So all you people who do think it’s okay y’all are sick

  37. Hey ALL !
    Stephen is soooo amazing, seen him live 3 times now. It just gets better and better. I have a stephen site up now http://www.lynch-mob.net It has info and pictures from the philly & portland shows. (Taken by me,I’m a photography major in college). Check out the site for info on Mark Teich and Drew Lynch too! (sign the guestbook please. thanks)

  38. Allison, quit whining. You gotta have a sense of humor to appreciate his music. I have a nephew and a brother in special olympics, but the song is still funy as hell.

  39. Anyone kno the name of that song that says something like ” you walked in while I was spankin it, I admit yeah I was really crankin it”

  40. I think it is gay that you say you have the words to his songs on this website and you don’t. His songs are cool and all, but this website SUCKS!

  41. First of all, nowhere on this site do I now state nor have I ever stated that I have Stephen’s lyrics here. In fact, I’ve stated very clearly that I’ve corresponded with Stephen and he has asked that his lyrics not be posted on the web, which is his right as the copyright holder, and that I will delete any that get posted here.

  42. Hey there is a new msg board on his site http://www.stephenlynch.com
    he was on last call with carson daly two nights ago and he’ll be on comedy central (comic remix) a few times, it’s all on the site/ msg board. and it’s ed.

  43. Ya I love stephen lynch but I can’t find any of his cds anywhere. It sucks…some people are turds.
    Well anyways, this probably won’t be happening but I’d really appreciate it if somebody wants to be cool and send a few lyrics to me. If you do, I’ll….I’ll do something really nice for you.

  44. Hey!!!!!!!!
    i love stephen so much and hes the only guy ive seen thats hot and funny on tv haha. plus his voice is great! i dont no how he gets his ideas but they are hella funny! ok well hes duh best!!!!!!

  45. Stephen is really funny, but if you guys arew looking for other funny comedians, check out Jonny Sanchez, Robert Hawkins, and best of all, Mitch Hedburg. All of them are funny.

  46. I love Stephens songs! they are ABSLOUTELY the best out there. When i have a bad day i just think of his songs. Especially “Oh Bin Ladden”.
    IF ANY BODY KNOWS WHERE TO GET LYRICS, PLEASE E-MAIL ME!!!

  47. He rawks… very funny stuff, speciallyt he Altar Boy song and Gynocolgist and the F your Sister, those are funny. I though that he didn’t want his lyrics posted ont he internet? o.O

  48. Whoever said Stephen’s lyrics were on lyricsplanet.com is wrong. I checked there and they don’t even have his name. So, my search for his lyrics continues . . . . .

  49. lol i like the special fred song, and the kill a kitten song, even tho its mean πŸ™ but its funny.
    *loves futurama and stephen*
    and its special FRED, listen closley.
