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

Brain Bank

Lisa Best is one hell of a good comic. It is unfortunate then that the sound quality on her first comedy CD or MP3 album Brain Bank sounds like it was recorded on the cheap with a mic at the back of the room. I am very if not maniacally particular about sound quality and this got in the way of my enjoying how funny and different Best is.Best sets herself up as stand-up's equivalent to the starving artist. Her ... More

Solid Gold

Know the audience you are recording your album in front of. Amy Miller is well aware of this rule I just made up and uses it to her full advantage in her first stand up comedy MP3 album Solid Gold. Miller is a very good and interesting comic who knows how to tell a story but it is the way she toys with the Portland, Oregon audience and its many sensitivities that make this album.Miller sets the tone right off ...

Live & Uncensored

 BSeenMedia, a company with a great ear for comedic talent (such as Patrice O’Neal and Myq Kaplan) is back with a new release from Ben Bailey called “Live & Uncensored,” which is available as a digital download or a DVD.Bailey is a comic that heavily relies on one of my favorite “types” of comedy – the complete deconstruction of language.  He takes everyday words and phrases, and picks them apart in hilarious ways.  The opening track “Thanks for Coming Out” ...

Debut Second Album

I would pay good money to see Charlie Nadler live. If you pay good money to get his Debut Second Album MP3 at his website you will not only get thirty-some minutes of solid stand-up but the money will go to Alex's Place in Oak Bluffs, MA so you can feel good about donating too. Most important for this reviewer though is you are getting solid comedy for your buck.Nadler is a biographical comic with a talent for some very ... More

Fool Disclosure

If only for the opening track Bank Routine where JJ Whitehead gets into an argument with a bank employee as to whether or not he is JJ Whitehead Fool Disclosure is a keeper. The rest of Fool Disclosure is also solid if you favor biographical comics. Personally, it depends on the comic's stage persona and Whitehead comes across as a fun guy so this comedy MP3 album works for me. This said, I am beyond JJ Whitehead target demographic of ... More

Almond Badoody

Ahmed Bharoocha's album is definitely going on our 2016 Top 10 Comedy Album list. Almond Badoody is a superb, witty, original, hilarious collection of observational and biographical bits by a stand-up comic who really knows how to set up material and tell a joke. You have never heard a comic quite like Bharoocha.After the standard comic with the unusual name complains about his name being mangled bit, Bharoocha hits them out of the park one after the other. Crows and ... More

Don t Wake the Bear

Don't Wake the Bear is an excellent stand-up comedy CD you never get tired of playing. Dan Cummins is funny from beginning to end on this album. He cuts a wide swath of topics from gun control to what happens when you sleep naked and closes with a bedtime story for modern times and realistic parents.All the routines on this CD or MP3 album are rock solid. My personal favorite is The Binky Queen, a story about how clever his ... More
