Generation Gap

Matt Falk Generation Gap is an excellent comedy CD and he works clean. Falk may not be most original in his choice of topics but since he can make even an old canard like a bit about going to Ikea funny and original it does not really matter. What also helps is he is very easy to like so the audience is more than willing to go along with whatever story Falk tells. This is a comic you can bring ... More

Amazing! (Probably)

Amazing! (Probably) by Sid Singh is amazing no doubt. Singh is a very easy to like comic whose biographical material connects to just about any audience you can think of.There are no weak tracks on this comedy album. Singh opens with a rules for the show bit where he lowers audience expectations for some reason but immediately moves to a solid and original bit on how your high school reunion is much like Facebook and how there is no possible ...

Alive On State

Steve Gillespie Alive On State is a very varied and funny album. There is something for every stand-up album and you could also say there is a version of Steve Gillespie  for very audience member. This comedy album figures so many genres it kept me off balance for a while but it was worth the plunge. This stand-up is for a quote mature audience unquote aka people with a decent sense of humor.Gillespie begins with a vain bit about his ... More

South Park The Complete 20th Season

Season 20 of South Park shows it is possible for a show to get even edgier and more relevant. Season 19 of this Comedy Central classic broke new ground by having all 10 episodes form a single narrative thread with attacks on political correctness and the insidiousness of advertising. This time around, Trey Parker et al are dead on with their take on the 2016 election between Giant Douche and Turd Sandwich, trolling, the dangers of nostalgia, as well as ... More

The Vowel Diet

The Vowel Diet is the third Dan Gabriel comedy album I have had the pleasure to listen to. Gabriel is out to entertain his audience and he is very good at it. This means there is nothing political or controversial on this MP3 album but Gabriel does an eye for some pretty accurate social commentary when he feels like it such as when he discusses the disappearance of some old fashionned common names.The biggest difference between early albums and this ...

And I Am Not Lying

And I Am Not Lying is the perfect title for Jeff Simmermon's comedy album. The tales are so tall you really do wonder. The stories Simmermon tells here are also funny, weird, and original. Although it is not quite stand-up comedy, more on that later, this album is a keeper.Simmermon's UCB Theater roots show in how he narrates his material. And I Am Not Lying features few if any stand-up structures as Simmermon relies more on the narrative quality of ... More

Once Is Enough

If like me you are a fan of long-form humorous storytelling you are going to appreciate Once Is Enough by Jeffrey James Binney.  If Binney appeared on Oprah is story would be labelled as inspirational and other sentimental pap. Here, MP3 albums and CDs are judged on the material and the comic's ability to deliver it. James Binney Once Is Enough is half straightforward stand-up and half biographical narrative with humorous moments; the mix is just right, making this a ... More

Drunk History Season 4

Drunk History is a TV show where a drunk neverheardof'em celebrity tells the story of an important historical moment or  person. This reality show is, believe it or not, quite educational and a lot of fun. Fun because the presentation of each historical moment is on the goofy side but also because you can play “spot the real celebrity” since a lot of name actors like Kevin Pollack show up in small roles. Drunk History Season 4 features 6 shows ... More

Cops and Robbersons - Comedy 20 Movie Collection

I forgot how much fun Cops and Robbersons is. This comedy stars Jack Palance as a detective and Chevy Chase as a family man whose house and family is taken over for a stake out. Palance is fresh from his  City Slickers Academy Award; Chase plays a variation of Clark Griswold. Thanks to Milll Creek Entertainment, Cops and Robbersons is now available in the 6 DVD Comedy 20 Movie Collection. A list of the 19 other comedies is included at ... More

The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human - Comedy 20 Movie Collection

The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human is a paint-by-numbers by-the-book romcom created solely for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy style commentary track by David Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame. Pierce is the voice of an alien anthropologist who hasn't really done his research so gets many of his facts and interpretations wrong and that is why this movie is really funny. The Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human is, for me, one of the surprises in Mill Creek ... More

I Am Not The Hero Of This Story

Jackie Kashian is a stand-up comic with PTSD – President Trump Stress Disorder. What makes her anti-trump material far superior to all the other stuff that has come out so far is how clever the attacks are. It alone makes I Am Not The Hero Of This Story worth buying. The rest is also great comedy and this from someone whose ear for comedy has grown quite tired and jaded.The first and last third of I Am Not The Hero ... More

You Let Me Down

Joe DeRosa takes aim at just about every social irritant and hits each one dead center on his new stand-up comedy MP3 album You Let Me Down.  It is hard to disagree with him and his take on illogical or annoying society is makes for a very funny performance. Many comics do this kind of material but DeRosa is smarter than most when it comes to it. This is not the kind of comedy album you put on to relax. ... More
