Though he moved away when he was nine, comedian Tom Segura always looks forward to coming back to Cincinnati. “I definitely want to have some chili while I’m there,” he says, “and see some family.” Segura has just released his first album, called Thrilled. Whereas some comics start from scratch after a new release, Segura knows the crowd still wants to hear the familiar hits. “I’m working on a new hour,” he explains, “but I don’t want to give people an hour of ‘hey, I’m working this stuff out.’ There’s a good chunk of new stuff (in the set) and then there’s stuff that’s on the album.” Most of the material is based on simple daily observations.
