Release date: November 2011
Humor Risk is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Cass McCombs, released on November 8, 2011 via Domino Records, just seven months after the release of McCombs' previous album, Wit's End. In an interview with Pitchfork, McCombs said the two albums were made simultaneously. He explained: "Wit's End was started years ago and it slowly made its way to the finish line. Humor Risk was just punched out. They're friends but they're different. Wit's End is like a stew; Humor Risk is the raw food diet." The album was co-produced by Cass McCombs, Ariel Rechtshaid and John Webster Johns.
