Dejan Tyler: Get Rich or Diabetes
Oh. My. GAWD, with this title. I can't. I was laughing even before I started listening to this comedy album by Dejan Tyler. In only four words, I could already tell this comedian gets it and has a good sense of humor about everything that's wrong in this world.
I love Tyler's delivery; he just has an awesome personality and I found myself laughing even before he said much of each joke. Some people are just born comedians and funny personalities; Dejan Tyler is one of them. A natural and effortless comedian.
There are 11 tracks on the album, Get Rich or Diabetes, and they are all good. If I had to pick a favorite, which is really hard to do with this one, I would have to say track number 5, Dollar Sto'; so relatable. I won't spoil it for you, but here is my favorite line from that joke, "why is the pizza sauce next to the hydrogen peroxide?", talking about the wacky product placement and the way the dollar store just don't give a care. I was ROTFL. This album is great and I love Tyler's style.

"ABOUT THE ALBUM
Get Rich or Diabetes, comedian Dejan Tyler’s debut album, gives snapshots of real life, for real people, rendered in ridiculous scenarios. Dejan celebrates the lower-middle class with sharp, detailed, flavorful writing. He elevates living “on the come up”, being broke, getting by, into rich, textured hilarity. The comedian is supremely talented at evoking cultural touchstones, like fast food mystery meat or Dollar Store condoms, while remaining true to the voices and personalities that inspire him. Dejan Tyler keeps it real: real funny, real authentic, real inspired. Get Rich or Diabetes is an unflinching, unassuming, and unrelenting good time.Filtering everything from sleep apnea to Chinese food through his personal identities “thug” and “nerd”, Dejan Tyler gives new meaning to the term “biracial”. This dual perspective, clashing yet complimentary, a mashup of distinct codes, lingo and values, frames Dejan’s wholly unique and effectively universal sense of humor. You won’t hear a more “hood” stance on magic, nor a more “geek” view on gangs than on Get Rich or Diabetes. Dejan Tyler grounds fantasy in realness, embellishes reality as fantasy, and brings high concepts down to earth for brilliant, well-crafted, relatable comedy.
