Publisher's Summary

Eat Around It, is funny and daring. Comedian Anthony Davis, not basketball player Anthony Davis, tells jokes with a chip on his shoulder. He’s outrageous; he’s ornery and out of the box hilarious. His Southern-fried comedy is rife with booming bursts and salt of the earth silliness. With sharp wit and high energy sarcasm, the North Carolina native is cutting and unflinching. He’s not afraid to yell and swear with agitation. Every emotional explosion is usually grounded by self-aware self-defeat. Davis, whether through off color wordplay or offhand audacity, achieves an impressive balance between being endearing and edgy. 

A noteworthy storyteller, Davis spins yarns throughout Eat Around It. Every anecdote goes from bad to worse, lurching forward with tense and alarming circumstances. One of the album's many highlights features the comedian’s run in with a sect of Christians, who happen to worship with snakes. The result is a madcap adventure, high stakes and higher hilarity. Anthony Davis keeps up the funny: delightful divergences, musing asides, ridiculous reenactments, potent peril, pointless politeness, a dramatic conclusion. This story and others are must listens. 

Davis smiles and he wisecracks, but he’s a powder keg, a livewire. In Eat Around It, the young, rising comedian’s debut comedy album, Anthony isn’t afraid to air his grievances. While the misguided, misunderstood everyman, wrestling with a comedy of errors, is often “wrong,” he’s still loveable (and funny as hell). Plus-size with a big personality; pristine, good natured, ornery, self-deprecating comedy, Davis makes his mark. You won’t want to miss Eat Around It!

Critic Reviews

"Anthony Davis is a Los Angeles-based comedian originally from the Deep South, as his drawl attests. He’s a big ol’ bushy bearded lumberjack type guy, and is he okay? Well, that’s what this review is all about. Apparently there is also a basketball player with the same name that I never heard of (I kid you not, as I don’t follow sports), and that’s how the comedian Davis’ riff starts, in a pretty funny social media call-out. Davis’ humor relies on a dual asset: one is what he knows and the other is just a little bit of shock humor, but nothing too outrageous, even with a hint of incest humor (well, he is from the Deep South, as I said), though not behavior, for those who are triggered by that sort of thing. His three basic points of attack are his weight and food, his wife, and mind-altering substances, sometimes combining all three. I was amused by a lot of it, such as when he says his wife describes him as looking like “a fat serial killer,” and he responds that what does the fat have to do with that? And there’s a funny bit about making mac’n’cheese while stoned. His discussing of his family history including dating back to the civil war is actually quite amusing, especially discussing his elderly aunt. There’s also other topics ranging from porn to the particularly funny snakes in church." (Robert Barry Francos, FFanzeen, 2020)
