Between working on Better Call Saul and the upcoming season of The Birthday Boys (premiering Fri, Oct. 17 11:30p), Bob Odenkirk has been busy. But somehow he has managed to find the time to finish up his very first comedy album, Amateur Hour. He just announced that the album is done and will be released just in time for Thanksgiving, on November 25th.

In his tweet, Odenkirk also revealed that he just finished recording a special bonus track for the album with an old Mr. Show writer, Eric Hoffman. Odenkirk’s album also includes work from rising standup comedian Brandon Wardell, who functions as Odenkirk’s opening act on the album, which was recorded back in May at LA’s NerdMelt Theater. Wardell will go out on tour with Odenkirk to promote the album as well as Odenkirk’s book of plays, A Load of Hooey, which is out Oct. 7th.
Amateur Hour will be released through AST Records; more information on Odenkirk’s new book and tour can be found over at his website.
