Comedy Monster

Donzilla does to good taste what Godzilla did to Tokyo but more thoroughly. Don Tjernagel's idea of comedy is “a Voltaire reference in a butt fuck joke” or the American Gothic couple at a swinger's party. This is not stand-up for the weak of heart. As a matter of fact, Tjernagel tells the story of an audience member so offended he got a heart attack. If, however, you like comics who have no fear and are smart enough to juggle ... More

Pretty Fly

Pretty Fly is a pretty fly comedy album from a white British guy. At a time when everybody is releasing a comedy album, we get one a day or so, Chris Turner's stand up stands out. This godawful play on words is my tip of the hat to some of Turner's joyously horrible puns. These, jokes based on roman numerals, and his ability to work the long form create a solid show.Turner is a Brit. Brit humor does not always ... More

Scaredy Cat

Scaredy Cat is a decent stand up performance by Tony Sam.  It is the equivalent of listening to a good middle act at a club. The material is good but there is nothing you will really remember at the end of the evening.Sam has a high-pitched voice. He is smart enough to address that right off so that it does not become the focus of your attention. At the same time, he seems to assume a level of intimacy with ... More

A Good Catholic Boy

1997's A Good Catholic Boy is my favorite of the five releases or re-releases Richard Jeni's estate has arranged for on the New Wave Dynamics label. The other titles are  Platypus Man (HBO 1992), A Big Steaming Pile of Me (HBO 2005) as well as 1997's Greatest Bits and a new MP3 album titled The Beach Crowd.  Listening to these albums again just reminded me what a loss the comedy world suffered when Jeni died. There is no real reason ... More

I m Married, Let Me Tell You About It

You could not get more truthful a title than I'm Married, Let Me Tell You About It for Ryan Dalton's comedy album.  That is exactly what he does most of the time. It makes for an entertaining performance with a few gems here and there.  Of course, you have to appreciate relationship comedy. MP3 album at AmazonOne of the highlights of this CD is Black Eyes which Dalton misunderstood as Black Guys. I really like language based humor and this ... More

Gallagher Live

Serious comedy fans will be happy to hear Gallagher's first album, Gallagher Live is now available as a CD. For those familiar with this comic, it is the show with the woman who laughs like a seal and with whom the comedian has a lot of fun. The show also proves that this guy is or was much more than just a watermelon smashing prop comic. Unfortunately, Gallagher Live is only available on Itunes.Gallagher is a one liner comic with ... More

Same Sex Symbol

Cameron Esposito’s “Same Sex Symbol” is the third comedy release from independent recording label Kill Rock Stars -- with the first two releases from Kurt Braunohler and the great Hari Kondabolu.  It goes without saying that the number one criterion for any successful comic is being funny.  Esposito is extremely funny, and has the added benefit of also being very likeable.  I always liked her when she was a panelist on Chelsea Lately, and I like her when she’s on ... More

The Stranger

Dan Mintz is set to release his first comedy album -- "The Stranger" -- on Comedy Central Records.The spectrum of stand-up comedy styles swings from "short form" to "long form."  Short form stand-up is typically one-liners, or short bits; long form is extended or longer stories and bits.  Some comics work purely in one style, while others maintain acts that shift from one to the other.Mintz is a comic that works purely in short form stand-up; quick setup, punchline, quick ...

Matt McClowry gives a solid performance on Working Out.  He is not a comic who will surprise you with his premises or observations but the stuff is generally very funny.  If you are looking for a comfortable listening experience with some adult references but clean language, this is a good choice.This comedy MP3 album consists of biographical and observational material. There are a couple of really old jokes here such as Trojan not being a good name for a condom ... More


Believement is an excellent comedy album, almost.  Matt Fugate is a forty something married father of three whose material focuses on that. This is standard stand-up fare but Fugate's very likeable persona make it interesting and funny. The almost comes from the occasional use of the F-word. Swearing has never bothered me and I consider it a spice some comics add to the mix. Spicy is not what people are looking for at a friendly neighborhood restaurant. Or, I could ... More

Tangled Up In Plaid

I have been a rabid fan of stand-up comedy for several decades and, because I both watch and listen to such a tremendous volume of stand-up comedy, I often find myself thinking that I must be familiar with every single working stand-up comic.  Of course, that’s a ridiculous thought, as it would be technically impossible to be familiar with every person working in any industry.  Despite realizing the absurdity of that thought, it is a recurring one.Time for some honesty ...

See What I m Saying

If the name Greer Barnes is familiar it is because you were a fan of In Living Color and Chapelle's Show. Those not familiar with him will discover a very intelligent and funny comic with a superb talent for voices and accents. Unfortunately, I think dick jokes are the adult comedy equivalent of airplane jokes and a good third of this comedy MP3 album is dick jokes.See What I'm Saying is otherwise an excellent album. Granted, there are a couple ... More
